Life Lately, March 2023

Recently, whenever I go to write these, I feel like I'll have nothing to share - only to go through my camera roll and find a bunch of fun little moments that have happened. This month also has two musicals that I went to, which feels like a lot in and of itself, but really, it's the little moments that I like to look back on.

Friday Favorites

I don't know if it's the time change or what, but I have been struggling with my productivity and my energy this week - my brain has just felt so foggy all the time! I'm hoping I can come back next week feeling refreshed. I am super excited for this weekend, actually, because I'm seeing the musical Six, and I've been looking forward to this for months! I can't wait.

Looking Back on Three Years

Earlier this week, some friends and I were talking about how this time three years ago, everything was starting to change. We were all being told to work from home (and to stay home, if possible!), and there was just so much uncertainty about what was going on. Looking back at my posts on Instagram and at my texts to friends was really a wild ride - it's kind of hard to imagine myself back in that place! It's made me feel kind of introspective this week, though, and I thought I'd share a little bit here.

My Stationary

I have always been a collector of pretty stationary, notecards, and notebooks. But over the last three years or so, I've gotten much more consistent about writing and sending little handwritten notes. Since I've been sending notes consistently, I decided it was time to get some new stationary that I love. I feel really sophisticated sending out cards from my personalized set, and especially when I seal them with my wax stamp kit. I'm sharing the details of what I use in today's post.

What I’ve Been Watching

I realized that it's been a few months since I've done a round up of the TV shows I've been watching lately! Considering that I've been living somewhat of a hermit-like existence, it seems very overdue. And in honor of a few of my favorite shows coming back in the next month - Ted Lasso and Schmicago - now seemed like the right time.

Friday Favorites

This week started out pretty slowly, but ramped up pretty quickly and got much busier than anticipated. I also went to the dentist this week for the first time in... a while. Not only was I avoiding all medical appointments that weren't absolutely necessary because of the pandemic, but finding a dentist who is willing to work with me (and my mouth that can't open super wide) is actually a real challenge! So I had really built it up in my head and was dreading the appointment... and it ended up not being bad at all! Which was great, but I definitely felt a little exhausted from all the pent-up anxiety I had before the appointment. Basically, what all of this means is that I'm extremely ready for the weekend.

Spring Bucket List

It might not feel like spring at the moment I'm writing this (it's under 50 degrees), but it is March and we have had a few spring-like days, so my mind has started to mentally move on. I've also started to get that itchy, restless feeling that I get after feeling like I've been spending waaaay too much time in my house. So to give myself something to look forward to, I thought I'd make a spring bucket list.

Friday Favorites

This week has felt incredibly long as busy - I'm not sure what, exactly, it was that made it feel so exhausting, but on Thursday I was really convinced it should just... be Friday already. I honestly did not do a lot of browsing this week, so the favorites are shorter on articles this usual! There's one heavier post, and then lighter things that I saw and bought or thought about buying.

February 2023 Favorites

February's favorites are such a random mishmash of different things that I really loved throughout the month. Some are new to me, and some I've had for a while but became newly obsessed with. There's also more things than experiences on this month's favorites, which is fitting because much of the month was just me, in my house! So here's what I loved in February.

Recent Reads, February 2023

I hopped around genres again this month, and found a few books that I absolutely lost myself in and did not want to put down until I'd finished. Those are my favorite kinds - I love when I'm doing something else but find myself thinking about my book and wondering what's going to happen next. So here's what I read in February!
