Thankful Thursday

January 19, 2012

Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, this Mitt Romney-Julie Andrews mash-up that made me literally LOL at work — this was a good week. Maybe it’s my upcoming 26th birthday, maybe it’s the sunshine that’s been shining down on DC, maybe it’s the insane amount of Diet Coke I’ve been consuming but whatever the case, I’ve been very happy and thankful all week. What a way to head into the weekend!

One thing I’m really excited about is that Lauren and I are bringing back our photo blog. This project started in 2008 as 3 p.m. on Sunday when she lived in the DC area and I lived in Seoul, South Korea. It was such a fun way to keep in touch over a year spent on opposite sides of the globe.

We tried keeping another photo blog (Around the Corner) the following year, while Lauren lived in New York City and I was back in DC, but the project quickly fizzled because of work commitments.

Well… now we’re (hopefully) bringing it back. I’ll post here, too, when Around the Corner updates but it should be once a week, early week. Definitely check it out!

Other things I’m thankful for this week:

  • Unseasonably warm weather — as Joel Achenbach put it, “This has been a winterless winter, a season that can’t make it past lunchtime without busting out in a springtime melody.”
  • Then again — there are potential flurries in tonight’s forecast. I wouldn’t mind one winter wonderland before returning to spring.
  • Midweek dinners at Kramerbooks
  • Volunteer opportunities on my birthday
  • Wedding bells for friends that mean travel plans for Erin
  • This book I can’t put down
  • Not cooking, not caring
  • The John Coltrane Pandora station — perfect for at-work listening

What’s been the highlight of your week so far?

    I agree about the weather. As much as I’m loving the unseasonably warm temps, it’d be nice to have one snowstorm. It feels strange to have already gone through almost a month of winter without one.

    Highlight of my week was Kelly Clarkson’s concert on Sunday and having a M&G with her before the show — best day ever! 😀

      ‘Best day ever’?! That’s the kind of day we ALL need! Glad you had such an amazing experience.

    I’m thankful for making satisfyingly simple meals this week- means more time doing other things!
