(featured above: the best breakfast sandwich ever, probably the best combination of breakfast specials ever, and according to my gluten-free-friends, the best gluten-free muffins ever)

Lately I've been:

Wondering: about the summer. It recently dawned on me that I probably won't have anymore "free" summers. Do you remember those? - those summers when you didn't have to work or go to school or think or do anything besides play in the sun? I started pouting about this the other day and J had to kindly remind me that, no Heather, you are in fact not a child anymore. But I don't want to grow up yet! I'm not ready! Anyhow. I can't wait for summertime (even if school and work have to be involved).

Making: lists of the places I want to explore once we get back to New York (can you tell I'm getting a little obsessed?). Like I mentioned in this post, NYC seems to be everywhere I turn so I figured I should start keeping track of all the different spots I want to see someday. (Also - I really like this print, would love to be able to check out this installation, and would seriously love to take one of these cooking classes)

Listening: to a lot of Amos Lee, Youth Lagoon, and Norah Jones. I'm in the midst of midterms (woohooo!), so these are my go-to Pandora stations for studying and essay-writing.

Taking: the time to write letters. By now, you know how much I love anything handwritten so I've been making more of an effort to be the one doing the actual writing. I only have a few cards left from this collection so I have to be very selective about who to send them to!


  1. Sounds like we've been doing lots of the same lately. I'm always making lists and have an abundance of journals. Also working on many handwritten letters. I love them!

  2. So in love with your blog, lately I've been doing a lot of dreaming and list making, waiting for work to pick up for the summer to make me busy again!

  3. before I got to your thoughts, I saw that photo of breakfast specials and thought "oh my gosh that's actually perfection." glad to know you agree ;)

  4. LOVE this feature. and I love the idea of moving, and getting to dream of a new place and all the things you'll do and see!

    what do you want to do when you get there? find a job you're crazy about?

  5. I can't wait to hear about all your new journeys in NYC! you guys are going to have a blast.

  6. I love the way you express your thoughts! have fun in NYC, sweetie! :)

  7. Great blog here & I love Norah Jones!

  8. ah i'm in that summer stage right now! got not job, and no school and nothing to do! it's nice and allows for lots of time to watch netflix and sleep, but i don't know. it just feels so unproductive you know?

  9. I love that your write handwritten letters. :) Texting + emails have really taken the place of handwritten notes these days... and it's sad! I always smile when I receive cards & letters in the mail. :) I'm a very nostalgic person!
