a few of my favorite things

(Vegan) Ice cream in a waffle cone, smelling the ocean before seeing it, wine on rooftops, dressing up for no reason at all, a bookshelf of my very own, dancing in the rain, the moment before laughing hurts, scarves, lots of them, family out-to-dinners, wearing yoga clothes to work, basically all seasonal vegetables, natural lighting for beautiful photos, hair cuts & pedicures, going away for the weekend, sunrising runs, unexpected kindness, homemade fudge brownies with salt, hanging out with my siblings, just the three of us, loose-leaf teas, crisp stationary with cute designs, solo road trips, being surrounded by Spanish/French, a freshly clean apartment, boy-inspired butterflies, picnics in Central Park, getting competitive at sports games, salads made with local greens, candlelit yoga classes, gardens in bloom, skipping and flirting, not necessarily at the same time,  afternoons at the museum, the phrase: well done, brunches with unlimited mimosas, reading in hammocks, the darkest of dark chocolate.

And your comments. Thank you so much for your kind words on my last post, I truly do have the best readers and friends.
