friday letters

20 Jul

Dear Seal and Macy Gray, Can’t wait to see you two this weekend at Ravinia! I’m pretty sure I’m going to have just as much fun with you as I did with Lifehouse last year.

Dear people that complain about their job/boss publicly, I don’t understand how you feel comfortable doing this. How do you know someone isn’t going to see it and say something??

Dear Natalie, Thank you for your kind words over the last few weeks. You make me smile each and every time we talk/write/text 🙂

Dear Corey, I kind of want to hug you for minutes and minutes when I see you.

Dear Charles Bradley, Your station on Pandora is perfect for a Friday morning in the office. Work it.

****

My heart is heavy after reading about what happened in Colorado. These tragic moments are reminders to give one more hug, kiss, anything.

You just never know.

music in the park

17 Jul

For the first time this summer Corey and I made it to Music in the Park. We went just about every Monday last year and it was so great to go again. We drank wine out of McDonald’s cups (because we’re classy like that), we sat close to each other on the blanket, laughed, moved closer to the stage, drank more wine, and watched some random guy do some pretty freaking awesome dance moves. 

Erin and I went to Music in the Park last Wednesday… I didn’t take any pictures, but she did 🙂

let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we see

11 Jul

I want to travel so badly I can’t think of much else.

Dusk, Piazza Navona, Rome Italy

I want to go home right now, pack a bag, and go somewhere… almost anywhere.

Retro

I want to experience something new.

Floating Lantern Festival in Thailand.

I want to try something scary.

El Caminito del Rey, Spain. I am adventurous, but I could never do this!

I want go somewhere nobody knows me.

Beacon Hill neighborhood in Boston... Lovely, in a word.

I have probably 8 trips planned in my head… all of which are just waiting to be gone on.

italy.

I want to bring friends with me, I want to go alone, I want to go with my family… I just want to GO!

gorgeous photo!

Wouldn’t it be so fun to have the time and resources to just hop in the car and drive across the country or go to the airport and jet off somewhere?

Lombard Street, in San Francisco

Dip my toes in the ocean, climb a mountain, eat amazing food, visit small towns and big cities.

Simple. Classic. Italian.

I’d love to fly away somewhere with my boyfriend, hold hands while walking down streets neither of us have been down before, and fall more in love with travelling and each other.

Someday

missing her

10 Jul

I’ve been in a funk. A missing my mom more than my heart can take funk. She loved the 4th of July and starting on the 3rd my heart began to ache. Badly. 

My mind can’t wrap around the fact that it has almost been 18 months. Almost a year and a half without her.

I don’t cry every day or even every week anymore, but I have cried every single day for the past week. I woke up this morning remembering the morning she went in for her first surgery. My sister spent the night at home with me the night before and we stayed up until probably 4 in the morning talking, watching movies, doing laundry… we just couldn’t sleep. My sisters and I walked down to surgery with my mom and I tried really hard to not cry, but I couldn’t help it. My mom held my hand, looked up at the doctor and said, “This is my baby”. 

I just miss her.

elevator date

2 Jul

So, guys… how was your weekend? As much as I want to sit here and tell you the details about how the only thing I did from my weekend list was date night with my boo (which was fab, as usual) and none of the others, but really, I have cuter things to talk about. Such as…

The guy that just asked a girl out on the elevator.

That moment when...

Seriously. So stinkin’ cute! We work in a pretty tall building but the elevators move fast so he didn’t have much time. He was so nervous (it probably didn’t help that I was staring). She was most definitely trying to hide just how excited she was.  She got off the elevator first and as soon as she did he let out this huge sigh and smiled. 

THEY WERE SO CUTE! 


friday letters

29 Jun

Dear really nice lady that helped me yesterday, Thank you. I really can’t say enough how grateful I am you knew I wasn’t okay and helped even when others wouldn’t. I appreciate you.

Dear Suzanne Collins, You wrote really, really great books! I just finished re-reading Catching Fire and wish I had Mockingjay with me right now. 

Dear people that keep talking about the heat, Please, just stop. I get it okay. The vast majority of you have some kind of cooler home to go to… I do not. (But huge thanks to Erin for offering to let me stay at your house last night!)

Dear popsicles, I. Love. You!

Dear WEEKEND! Hi, I’ve missed you! I’m ready to celebrate you every way possible! Just as soon as I get my dentist appointment out of the way.

Dear SarahCatherine, I CANNOT wait to see you! I really wasn’t joking when I said I might just pack up and come visit you one of these weekends. 

Dear boyfriend, Thanks for a really fantastic date on Wednesday. I love you!

****

Movie in the Park tonight with my seeester and all her boys 🙂

Soccer game watching with my girlfriends tomorrow afternoon!

Date night with my boo tomorrow night 😉

NADA on Sunday! 😀

It should be a good one!

xoxo, S

5 things i learned over the weekend

26 Jun

1. Less is more.

2. It rocks that I have 2 sisters. Not just one, but two. It makes the moments I miss my mom easier – they know what I’m talking about.

3. Ordering cheesecake (with strawberries – duh) to come out at the same time as dinner can be the best decision ever. I also learned that it’s okay to eat the cheesecake and drink wine instead of eating my actual dinner. 

4. Random I love you phone calls can turn my whole day around.

5. Reading for hours instead of cleaning my apartment is perfectly fine.

Honorable mention… This is what happens to mini cupcakes when you put them in front of me and the boyfriend when we are hungry and an hour away from dinner…
