Reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and trying to implement its teachings into my home and life. It's so crazy to think about how much stuff we accumulate over the years, and how we don't let go of it because we think we need it, but it ends up just creating clutter and making us unhappy. I have a lot more thoughts on all of this, but that's another blog post!

Watching the last season of Parenthood. I have three episodes left and I can't believe how attached I've gotten to so many of the characters. Kristina used to irritate me back in the first few seasons and now I wish she were real so I could have coffee with her.

Thinking about upcoming episodes of Hello, Butter and all the things I want to do "next," like the YouTube channel I've been dreaming about for months and months and months. If I had one, what would you like to see? I'm thinking it would be a bit of an extension of this blog, just through videos; so there'd be some food, some general life stuff, maybe cocktail recipes? I'd love to share some makeup stuff and maybe even do a Q+A column on a semi-regular basis. If you have ideas or requests, let me know! Maybe hearing from you guys is what I need to finally get started.

Missing Minneapolis a lot--it is so amazing to me that I can feel so happy and at home in Charlotte and simultaneously wish we never left Minnesota. I've learned over the past few years of moving that you can (and will) feel all sorts of weird and conflicting things at once, so I just try to embrace it and stop trying to make sense of every little thing. You can love where you are and still think somewhere else is better.

Looking forward to a full weekend at home. I drove to Roanoke last Sunday night and spent a few days in Charlottesville after that, so today feels like Monday and even though I was only gone for three days, it felt more like a week (Charlotte to Roanoke to Charlottesville and back the same way is kind of a hike), so it'll be nice to have nowhere to be except home with Rob and Ender.


What have you been reading, watching, thinking about, missing, and looking forward to?
