Making: pies. It's berry season and those bad boys have a short shelf life. (This crust is a dream!)
Cooking: mushrooms in pickle juice + brainstorming other things I can add it to. (They were good.)
Drinking: coffee again. (oops.)
Reading: the last few chapters of The Scarlet Letter + The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty.
Wanting: this printed tent (the trail favors function over form—though one can hope to still be stylish despite 8 days without a shower).
Looking: for a Wes Anderson DVD collection. They should make one. I'd buy it. (Mario and I watched Moonrise Kingdom last weekend and loved it equally the second go-around.)
Playing: with watercolors (in this coloring book).
Wishing: for more date nights with Mario (there is no shortage of restaurants to try).
Enjoying: warmer temps and evening breezes—the porch is getting a lot more attention these days.
Waiting: to get in for a haircut. It's been a few months and my mop is looking scraggly.
Liking: all the retro runners.
Wondering: where my wedding ring is lurking (it's been missing for weeks—I suspect the cat was involved).
Loving: this gorgeous camera + laptop bag. (I'll have one of everything on their website, please.)
Watching: Bloodline on Netflix. Mario and I are really into it. (Is it wrong to send Kiddo to bed at 5p so we can binge-watch?)
Hoping: to see some tufted puffins this weekend.
Marveling: at how quickly the first half of the year went by.
Needing: to start populating the new blog. I have a serious case of fear-based writer's block.
Smelling: that fresh, earthy smell that comes after a good rain shower.
Wearing: these t-shirts from Target pretty much every day (I just ordered 3 more).
Following: Sea Salt and Evergreens (is there anything better than finding a lovely new blog?).
Noticing: Portland has precisely one million coffee shops. I will never run out of new places to
Thinking: about this article and its insight into the societal plight of all women.
Bookmarking: PCT blogs, guides, websites, and maps.
Giggling: during this movie (but utterly touched + moved by it, too). I mean, Bill Murray.
Feeling: excited. nervous. overwhelmed. but above all, grateful.
