Hello, fellow internet dwellers! I’ve been off the grid a bit (I’m always more active on Instagram honestly) but I hope autumn or spring has been treating you all well wherever on the globe you reside!
What I’ve been doing:
Spending lots of time drinking coffee, editing cover letters, and people watching at Butterfly Herbs.
Hosting humans in our home, most notably having two Australians in our home!
Drinking some good local beer (here’s looking at you, Fresh Bongwater Hemp Ale!)
Starting multiple books and re-reading others, like Helen MacDonald’s H is for Hawk, which always makes me cry. Her way with words is unspeakably poignant and she digs under layers of emotions that you didn’t know you were feeling at the moment. The way that she writes makes you grieve as she does, and it was a bestseller for a good reason.
Writing almost every day in my diary. This is something I’ve been trying to do for a long time and I’ve been fairly good at it recently.
Sleeping at least eight hours a night (or at least trying).
Re-watching Mad Men and having all the thoughts. What a damn fine multi-layered, complex, revealing, and sad work of art.
Scanning in film I’ve taken over the last few weeks.
Baking corn bread muffins, making puttanesca, and drinking tea.
Going home, seeing my mother, going to the dentist, doing important life things.
