Back in NH for a few weeks. My time here is zipping by.

Lately, I’ve been…

reading:

Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. The War of Art by Stephen Pressfield (Truth: I’ve been reading both of these slowly for a long time. I’m not sure why they’re so slow-going for me, because they’re both excellent books.) I just started Torch, also by Cheryl Strayed. (I’m kind of a fangirl, can you tell?)

wearing:

Jersey dresses over jeans, pretty much always. (I have a whole bunch of these in various colors.) Infinity scarves. Keen Sisters MJ in Sienna. (I have a hard time with footwear for some reason — Keens are always a perfect fit, to the point that I don’t even want to bother with other brands anymore.)

smitten with:

Liz Lamoreux’s Soul Mantras. Buds on trees. Dad jokes.

indulging in:

Time with friends while I’m in New Hampshire. Also, dry hard cider. It’s my boozy drink of choice these days.

making:

A new leather journal, based on the Midori traveler’s notebook. I dyed my leather blue. It holds five notebooks (my written journal, lists, notes, bullet journal, and art journal) plus various folders & pockets for storing stuff I want to keep handy (stickers, documents, etc). I love this thing. (It replaces my Filofax as, for the moment, I’m no longer using a weekly planner. Gasp.)

listening to:

‘The Tallest Building in Hell’ – Jared Mees & the Grown-up Children. Actually, all of their music, on repeat all the time. I bought one of their CDs at Tender Loving Empire on a whim one day in March, and I’m a little bit obsessed.

‘No Trouble’ by the weepies. So fucking pumped for the release of their new album! They are my most favorite of all time.

bragging about:

newtattoo

my new tattoo!

looking forward to:

R.T.’s band’s show next week. (This is the second year they’ve played the Seacoast Roller Derby kickoff party!) Returning to Portland in early May. Road tripping across the country in my beat-up-but-trusty Honda Civic.
