Design Food Relationships Style Travel


January 7, 2009

while reading another web site yesterday, i clicked on a link and ended up at c jane enjoy it, a blog i know many of you know and love. in one specific post, jane recounted her 2008 and said something that struck me–and the writer i was reading–as incredibly profound:

“i realized the secret to happiness is to continually fall in love.

to give the soul reasons for butterflies.”

how wonderful a sentiment is that? so i started thinking about the things i’m in love with right now and came up with a random, but happy (to me), list:

grande skinny vanilla lattes from starbucks (iced, please). the typewriter in the photo above–my aunt’s by way of my grandfather, and now mine–a christmas present. sarasota (it’s true). my incredible friends. pea dumplings with lots of garlic, cucumber-yogurt-mint salad and homemade tabouli (my friend m. and i had a cooking day on saturday, and that’s what we made). semicolons. watercolory sunsets over the bay. oscar (of course). fancy soap. and this glorious, scary, all-encompassing life i call my very own.

tell me, my dears: what are you in love with right now? xo!

    Oooh! What a fun post! I adore the skinny vanillas from starbucks! Also, if you like fancy soap, you should check out Etsy. I used to make soap all the time (really fun soap) and sell it on Etsy. I don’t anymore, but their are some crazy good soaps there πŸ™‚
