Happy Thoughts

Last week was not a good week. I can name at least three huge frustrations, not to mention all these little annoyances, and by Friday I was ready to go home and mope. (Which I did and it didn't quite help.) But it's a new week and while I'm still in a mood, writing down what is making me happy is a good way to try and shake it off.


piles of books on my dining table
listening to vinyls on Sunday afternoons
current binge-watch of The Americans
Fireworks by Katie Cotugno
retail therapy at Missoma and J.Crew
people who make time for me (and don't flake)
my mom cutely surprising me with a bag
discovering Kombucha tea
unexpected compliments from unexpected sources
sitting on the couch & propping up your feet
sleeping early & sleeping in
dinner, dessert and coffee plans
a bottle of rosé wine just waiting to be opened
"What Do I Know?" by Ed Sheeran on repeat
cozy flannels and hoodies all weekend long
looking through old photographs at my parents' house
fun book drops for Books on the Subway
seeing a design come together 
friends who text songs they think you'll like
Trader Joe's Sumatra Coffee Brownies

What are your happy thoughts?

  2. I definitely find that making lists like this one make me feel better when I'm feeling anxious/stressed/sad, and your list made me smile when I read it :)
