[NOTE: It’s been a while since I’ve done any updating here. I’ve had a lot going on in my life, and to be honest, some of it’s not pleasant, so I haven’t felt much like writing or sharing in general, let alone doing both by blogging. I have, however, kept track of some good things in attempts to lift my spirits. So here’s a little Love A La Carte.]
Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious.
Orange is the New Black. Putting together new Ikea furniture and getting organized and actually having real, grown-up furniture. Friends who have been with you through it all, no matter how crazy things get. Müsli. Friends who make you dinner (homemade broccoli cheese soup!), buy you flowers, take you for a pedicure, and watch classic comedy movies with you to cheer you up. Honey goat cheese. Listening to Gala Darling talk about developing a bold and authentic brand. Autumn weather and leaving the windows open instead of the air conditioning on. This post about weight and appearance from HelloGiggles. Rodriguez. Having my mom visit – and having a guest room for her to stay in! Hanging art on the walls. Coming home to a clean house. Italian comfort food. Finding treasure while cleaning up and out. Garfunkel and Oates. Dim sum and lychee rose cocktails with an old friend. Curtains in place of blinds. Gearing up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) – if you’re doing it, you can friend me on the Nano boards here.
