Happy List! {by Brooke}

Friday, April 17, 2015


Its been a crazy week of work travel, a stomach bug I can't seem to shake off and packing around here (I'm moving apartments next weekend! Eek!), so while posts have been sparse lately, I'm excited to share this happy list from my college friend Brooke, who's passion for things like vegetarianism and cats make a meat-eating, cat-disliking (sorry!) girl reconsider. She's hardworking and can juggle so many things at once you wonder how she can have it all together when you can barely get through your 9-5 most days. She's in DC now, but I hope to have her in Chicago again soon.

10 things that are making Brooke smile as of late:

1. Cherry blossoms! I live in DC, and all the trees are bursting right now. The whole city smells so sweet.
2. Out-of-town visitors. Living far away isn't so bad when you get to play hostess/tour guide! This city has a lot to offer, and I love exploring and doing touristy stuff with people come to town.
3. Wedding season. Two of my best friends are getting married this spring and summer, and each wedding is like a mini college reunion.
4. Waffles. Every weekend.
5. (Fake) leather jackets. With everything. Throw with that a pair of aviators, and that's my complete spring uniform.
6. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and every TV show that showcases hilarious women succeeding on their own.
7. The new Sufjan Stevens album. These songs are so good, I feel like I've known them just as long as his earlier stuff.
8. Taking time each morning to sup my coffee (and smoothie) and ease into the day.
9. My furball cat, who has come a long way from the skinny little stray he was six years ago. The indoor life suits him!
10. The environmental movement. It's an intense time for our issues right now, but it makes being in DC, working to help preserve our planet, all the more worth it.

Thank you for sharing, Brooke!
