Here in DC, the seasons are changing. All I want to do is put away my sweaters and boots and switch to spring attire. I have a lot of travel coming up in the next couple of weeks (a trip to Georgia next weekend, then Japan!), and my preferred travel attire is casual dresses. It’s so easy to just pack a suitcase full of dresses, and pull out a different one every day. I love not having to worry about creating an ‘outfit’ the way you do with tops and pants and skirts. So yeah, all this to say, I’m spending every free waking moment right now filling my online shopping carts with casual spring dresses.
I ended last week with absolutely no energy. After working several 15 hour days in a row and getting very little sleep all week, I was a total mess by the time Saturday rolled around. I knew I needed to hunker down at home over the weekend and recharge my batteries. Everyone has their own method for recharging – working out, going out with friends, sleeping for 13 hours straight. My coping mechanism? Rewatching some of my favorite comfort TV shows. You know what I’m talking about! Shows you’ve watched from start to finish a million times. Shows that just make you feel like you’re hanging out with old friends. Today I’m sharing five comfort TV shows that always lift my spirits.
So here’s the deal. I’m super Type A. I love to plan ahead. I don’t love surprises (unless I’m throwing someone else a surprise party!). So I was as surprised as anyone when, out of the blue, I booked a trip to Japan for 10 days.
Have you been wondering where my January book reviews are? Yeah, me too. I did a fair amount of reading in January, but not quite enough to finish any one book.
To be honest, I’ve had a hard time convincing myself to do much reading lately. I feel more like going out with friends, watching TV, or working, rather than curling up with a book. So this wasn’t a month for extra-long literary works. Instead I gravitated toward easy reads that just kept me turning the page.
As a huge Parks and Recreation fan, Galentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. For those of you who are new to this holiday, I’m going to let Leslie Knope, inventor of Galentine’s Day, break it down for you.
