Happy List! {by Jessie}

Monday, June 12, 2017


Last week, while feeling a bit overwhelmed and generally burned out, I received the sweetest email from a reader. Absolute sweetest. It lifted my spirits and changed my mood entirely. Jessie sent the nicest note and happy list below, and suddenly I find myself wanting to be more dedicated to this space and looking up trips to DC (the only place in the U.S. Brian and I have mutually agreed would be nice to move to :) Thank you, Jessie! Your kind words meant the world.

10 things that are making Jessie (who wrote this book, so amazing!) smile as of late:

1. That my parents are visiting me here in DC from Chicago and we're going to two games in the Cubs/Nats series at the end of June! #GoCubsGo
2. Binge-watching Fixer Upper on HGTV and secretly wanting to drop everything and be an interior designer for Magnolia Homes.
3. This homemade lemonade recipe (and enjoying it in the sun on our rooftop).
4. Planning Sunday night dinners for when my boyfriend, Ben, gets home from drill weekends with the Army Reserve.
5. Looking forward to spending the 4th of July in the Adirondack Mountains of New York!
6. Our rescue puppy, Obi (yes, Star Wars!), and how ecstatic he is when he's frolicking around with his friends at the dog park.
7. Going kayaking on the Potomac River.
8. Any song off of "The King is Dead" album by the Decemberists, who I recently saw in concert (and they were amazing!)!
9. Our neighborhood in DC, where the streets are lined with tall oak trees.
10. The recent weekend getaway that Ben, Obi and I took to a cabin in Virginia. And the other adventures we'll go on this year!

Thank you for sharing, Jessie!
