26 More of Life's Little Pleasures.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

If you've never read Thought Catalog before, I highly suggest you do. It's a compilation of writers who write about everything; from political satire, to perfect first dates to best movies of the 80's. I usually love every post on there, but this is one of my favorites, Click Here. It's called 26 More of Life's Little Pleasures. Per usual, gaining inspiration from everywhere, I thought I'd write my own 26 More of Life's Little Pleasures. It's kind of like my happy post...but different. Enjoy. I'm gonna steal one from 'them' because I just love it, and it's my blog, and I do what I want :)

1. First kisses that you know will be your last, first kiss.
2. Stretching out in bed and finding the 'cold' spot.
3. Licking your fingers after popcorn. Mmmm salty buttery goodness.
4. Puppy kisses.
5. Checking everything off your To-Do list.
6. Pushing the elevator button and having it already on your floor.
7. A stranger in line who buys your coffee.
8. Freshly vacuumed carpet.
9. Payday Friday.
10. The feeling you get when you take your heels off.
11. The smell of a Sharpie.
12. Knowing that Friends is on, every night, for two hours.
13. The smell of rain.
14. Choosing the fastest line at the grocery store.
15. Having perfect change.
16. When someone lets your cut in front of them in line.
17. How quiet the world is after a fresh snow.
18. How we get two 11:11's every day.
19. Looking at your calendar and finding you have nothing to do today.
20. Finding the closest parking spot at the mall.
21. Finishing a good book, and rejoicing that it's a sequel.
22. Orange, red and yellow leaves.
23. Finding one more diet coke in the back of your fridge.
24. The bartender giving your happy hour prices even after happy hour is over.
25. The sweat after hot yoga.
26. When your iTunes shuffle knows just what you want to listen too.

To Lyndsey and Kyle

This is my friend Lyndsey and she's ENGAGED!! Hooray! 
Congrats Lynds and Kyle! I couldn't be happier for you two. 
You two are just perfect together and I'm so happy that I get to share in the excitement of your engagement! 
I love you both! 

My last, first day. Ever.

I start my third year of law school tomorrow. Can you believe it? Because I for one, cannot. It seems like just yesterday I wrote this blog expressing my anxiety and here I am, August 19th, 2012, getting ready for my last year of school, ever. It's been a crazzzyyy, yet wonderful, two years so I know this one will only get better. My favorite thing I wrote from that blog post two years ago was "I've been given the most amazing opportunity to do something great, and tomorrow is going to be a great day. I'm ready world, let's do this." I was so optimistic about what law school was going to be, and I'm happy to report that it was all I thought it would be cracked up to be. Now, two years later, here we go again. Tomorrow is going to be a great day.

Believe in nothing but love

I love you most (most beautiful darling)

more than anyone on the earth
and I
like you better than everything in the sky

-sunlight and singing welcome your coming
although winter may be everywhere
with such a silence and such a darkness
noone can quite begin to guess

(except my life) the true time of year-

And if what calls itself a word
should have
the luck to hear sun singing (or 
glimpse such
sunlight as will leap higher than high
though gayer than gayest
someone's heart at your each nearness)
everyone certainly would (my most beautiful darling)
believe in nothing but love.

-E.E. Cummings

Things to be happy about.

Friday, August 3, 2012

One of my favorite personal blog posts is the one entitled "Things to be Happy About." I wrote this post right after I graduated college, was living at home, just got my LSAT scores back and was trying to figure out my life. I was apprehensive about where my life was going, whether or not law school was a good choice for me, and basically just reconsidering a lot of things. I stumbled upon a website and it talks about everything you're happy about. It was a pick me up when I didn't even know I needed one. And it made me appreciate the every day things that I so often take for granted. So, here I am, 2 weeks away from starting my third year in law school. For the last two years, my life has been figured out. Law school, law school, law school. Now, starting this year, I have to re-figure parts of my life out. Where is life after law school? What kind of law? I'm going to be 26 when I graduate, where does that leave me? Where am I going to get a job? All those questions can really bog you down, so I think it's important to go back to the things that make me happy. So, here it is, my list of everything I'm happy about. 

50 things..... in no particular order.
1. Law School: Even though I hate it at times, I love it all the same. 
2. My mom & dad. They just celebrated 40 years together and are the best example of true love. 
3. My brother & my sister, Camila. They just celebrated 3 months married. They are another great example of true love. 
4. Erin. My heart. My sister. 
5. Adam. My one true (human) love. 
6. Henry My one true (animal) love. 
7. Coti & Whitney. My best friends, my security, my persons. 
8. Britt, Lynds and Lys. My law school life savers, wine drinkers, bachelor watchers and study buddies.
9. My apartment. The first place I lived alone and really made home. 
10. My job. Even though its the hardest job I've ever had, its the most rewarding.
11. My iPhone. I know, that's cray, but I really love it. 
12. Summer reading. 
13. The Olympics. Besides the fact that I love the National Anthem more than anything, there's Ryan Lockte. Need I say more? 
14. My steamer. I just got it. It's way better than an iron, and I love it. 
15. My God. Forgiving, loving, strong, adoring, faithful and always there. 
16. Friday-nights watching TV with Adam. Best part of my week. 
17. Wine. Red wine, white wine, I don't discriminate. 
18. Arizona, my home. 
19. Carrie Underwood's Blown Away album. She speaks to me. 
20. Henry kisses. 
21. A good pair of flats. 
22. Watching Adam cook. 
23. Double dinner dates. 
24. The Denver Broncos. 
25. The strength of the human heart. 
26. Blogging on a Friday afternoon. 
27. My personal "K" coffee mug. (see photo below) 
28. The paintings my mom paints for my apartment. 
29. My dad's emails. 
30. This lyric from Ho Hey by the Lumineers, "I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart."
31. My brother's sarcasm. 
32. Erin's hugs.
33. Netflix. 
34. My family in Omaha. 
35. Free speech.

47. Birthdays. Anyones, not just mine. Even though I do love mine. 
48. Sundays. God's day. Fun day. 
49. Weddings.
50. Knowing that with hard work we're all going to be okay. 
Surprise #51. This quote my dad sent me in one of his infamous (#29) emails. "As sure as God allows His children to be put into the furnace of struggles, setbacks and disappointments He also promises to be there to help them through and come out with a whole new outlooks on life." -Charles Sprugeon

Happy Friday Friends, I hope you have lots to be happy about!
