Switching things up today! Here’s a fun A to Z survey of my favorite things! Enjoy : )
A — April. The month when winter is finally over in New England and there’s daylight outside normal working hours. Everyone is suddenly in a better mood and wants to be active outdoors. Can you tell I’m done with the cold already?
B — Bright colors. Brighter the better. I’m so glad this trend is picking up.
C — Country music. It’s real.
D — David’s Bagels. I think my love for this little NYC bagel shop has turned into borderline obsession..
E — Endorphins. “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands!” -Legally Blonde
F — Fall. I love the crispness in the air, the colorful trees and the crunch sound a leaf makes when you step on it.
G — Golden retriever puppies. I can’t wait to get my own someday, so cutee!
H — Harry Potter. These books have become a form of comfort and familiarity for me, I read them when I’m homesick or sad (or just too tired to read anything else).
I — Inversions. Turning upside down is fun!
J — Jamming out in the car. There’s nothing better than driving with music blasting, windows rolled down on a beautiful summer day.
K — Kale. It’s a newly formed love and we make an unlikely pair, but it’s true. I love kale.
L — Laughing. The kind of laughing that makes your eyes tear and your stomach hurt. We could all use a little more laughter in our lives.
M — Matty in the Morning. If you’re from Boston, this needs no explanation.
N — New York City. Love that city and feel so lucky to have been able to live there, even if it was for a short amount of time.
O — Organizing. If I could be a professional organizer, I would.
P — Photography. Well this was an obvious one, huh?
Q — Quotes. One of my favorites was sent to me from my sister:“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves … Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” -Rainier Maria Rilke
R — Running. Of course this was going to be R! Here’s why I love running.
S — Sneakers. Especially bright colored ones. See letter B.
T — Travel.
U — Umbrellas. Especially when they match my rain boots : )
V — Veggie pizza. So good, so good.
W — Wakeboarding. My happy place.
X — X-Training. The elliptical is my x-training of choice, but I’d love to get back into swimming too!
Y — Yoga. Breathe & let go.
Z — Zac Brown Band. You know I like my chicken fried, a cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right, and the radio up.
What’s your favorite thing that starts with W? I thought of too many!
