"for one minute, please stand right here in silence, and look up"

  1. lists. they make me happy. and sometimes i make them just to cross things off and feel accomplished.
  2. the "i love you" song pat and i sing to each other each night before going to bed
  3. the giant glass of white wine to my right
  4. the new earrings i bought 4 days ago from my thrift store for $1.25 and received 6 compliments since then, because they are just that great.
  5. maybe it's the wedding craze that's swirling around me, or the fact that so many of my friends will at some point be entirely new names in my address book, but i really am beginning to feel protective of "anna maria lewis," i think my parents did a good job when we met, and so i intend to keep it.
  6. long standing friendships, the ones that hold the promise of forever.
  7. quotes that move me and make me think. whether it be elizabeth gilbert; "there’s a crack in everyone…that’s how the light of God gets in." or mechtilde of magdeburg; "from suffering i have learned this: that whoever is sore wounded by love will never be made whole unless she embrace the very same love that wounded her."

  1. my desire to get into yoga grows each day, and yet so does my desire for sleep. which kind of gets in the way of a 6am yoga class. what is a girl to do?
  2. should buying snow boots really require a pro/con list?
  3. what happened to ben harper?
  4. when you finally feel full, full of life and love and gratitude for the luck you have been handed, what else is there?
  5. why can't i be vegan?
  6. is there a more perfect man?
  7. is there really anything a strong margarita and a good night's sleep can't fix?
