Things I’m Loving

September 11, 2010

Setting out shortly for a day of festivals — September seems to equal festival month here in DC — and wanted to leave you with a few things I’m loving today.

– This guy really wants to be country treasurer. I watched this in my cubicle yesterday afternoon and could not stop laughing. If only I could have worked it into a story…

– I’ve been missing England so much lately. John Kelly really sums up why Anglophiles adore Oxford so much. Favorite line: ‘For an Anglophile such as myself, being in Oxford is like wrapping a rubber tube around your arm, pulling it tight with your teeth, tapping your skin with a finger to raise a vein, then mainlining pure Englishness.’


– Yesterday was the first truly autumn day of the year. That completely sent me over the edge and into cravings for soup, scarves, and wool skirts.

– HomeGoods. Cute bowls and ramekins were just the tip of the iceberg. The big ticket item?

I saw this chest of drawers and immediately wanted it. Eventually it will be great for an entry hall but for now, it works in my bedroom. On top are two pillows from Paris and a stone mask hand-carved in Belize. I met the guy who made this and loved the backstory — it’s the god of writing!

My bedroom is covered with mementos of my travels. One day, I’ll get around to printing out photos and having framed travel photos around the apartment but for now, it’s just bits and pieces of different places.

From Korean teacups

to more masks and mirrors from Belize

and a wall hanging from Thailand.

In fact, the only travel photos I have on the walls weren’t even taken by me.

Ah… London. 😀

What are your Saturday plans? What are you loving today?

    Such beautiful weather here today … seriously, it’s perfect outside. I’m loving life today – thinking about nine years ago and just embracing all the blessings we’ve been given and how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful country.
