look, this quilt!
watching: kristie + i have made it to season 3 of "breaking bad," but i can only watch so many episodes per week. that show is stressful! we're excited for the premiere of "the fosters," though. are you going to watch it?
thinking about: how well "married" fits. trying to be patient while our amazing photographers are hard at work on the wedding photos. how nice it is to sleep with the windows open at night. a summer full of small dinner parties. how much happier i am as soon as the temperature goes up. a dog at home who really needs a trip to the dog park.
reading: i'm reading "the forgotten garden" by kate plimpton right now which, while not the most well-written piece of fiction in the world, is entertaining. next on my list is "wild" by cheryl strayed.
celebrating: kristie + i got married last weekend! we are celebrating marriage, family members, friends, an awesome party + the happy fact that it's all over + we can now move on with our lives! i'm so thrilled to have time now to knit in the evenings, take long walks with samson + generally just feel no pressure whatsoever when i get home from work. it's nice. i missed that. also, i got to say "my wife" at the bank the other day. it felt so good.
making me happy: rain on humid days. lilacs blooming in our backyard, however briefly. a new quilt. a tried-and-true chili recipe. weekend plans. brainstorming new ideas. a kitchen table brimming with flowers leftover from the wedding. friends who know just what to say (or not say). bursts of fresh creativity. driving to three different restaurants so everyone could eat exactly what they wanted for dinner the day after the wedding. buying our honeymoon tickets tonight. talking to my dad. sweaters way on sale at old navy (i got 2). small acts of spontaneity.
