this list will be so sad compared to my last one xD but that’s okay.

♥ everyone’s reactions to my newly listed clothes! (even though i haven’t sold squat yet) ♥ being back on craftster (i always get more compliments than i can handle) ♥ new fabric (sequinned tulle!) ♥ how my voice sounds when i have a cold ♥ finding neverland (i just saw it on tv & thought it was amazing) ♥ all those crazy time paradoxes in lost ♥ writing again! ♥ read print (hello, free books; unfortunately in digital) ♥ styling my new short hair ♥ good pictures of myself (i will probably totally sound like gilderoy lockhart, but i keep amazing myself with how good i can look) ♥ feverishly checking the stats on my blog & shop ♥ smiling for no reason whatsoever ♥ decent strangers ♥ rain! (i’ve missed you) ♥ wearing doc martens with floral dresses ♥ how fast i get better in the unlikely case that i get sick ♥ shane, still (i watched an episode of the l word again today, so that love is still fresh in my mind :]) ♥ being inspired ♥ joe black (i just discovered his music the day before yesterday; it’s genius) ♥ unusual music in general♥ the latest episode of love & sequins ♥ sudden increase of comments on my blog (three in a week! it’s a record!) ♥ being a total word nerd & following dictionary.com on twitter (i also loved that miss darling recommended dictionary.com on her podcast; fellow nerds always make me smile) ♥ when sewing/writing, just making things up as i go along instead of planning it all out beforehand ♥
far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. i may not reach them, but i can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, & try to follow where they lead.
