a few of the things that are lighting up my days:
a good night’s sleep and a subsequent early rise.
the explosive fragrance radiating from the jasmine bushes two blocks down.
…and the poppy bush next door.
that moment when i taste a charred brussels sprout leaf straight out of the oven while I still have lingering chocolate coating my mouth from the brownie i just ate. salty meets sweet.
the feeling on my skin when i apply my nightly facial serum.
a home-cooked meal and a glass (or two) of champagne. because wednesday.
the anticipation of visiting mama and daddy next weekend.
…and celebrating a special birthday.
finding a good book and actually finishing it.
the sound of effervescence while opening a bottle of topo chico mineral water.
thoughtful text messages from lifelong friends.
this space for allowing me to capture otherwise forgotten moments.
