The Sunday Currently : 2

I'm feeling particularly tired this Sunday morning. Yesterday turned out to involve a nearly full day of travel as I came back from Pittsburgh. After a flight delay, a missed train from Baltimore to DC, and a broken metro escalator, I was wiped out by the time I actually made it home. Despite this, I somehow ended up staying up past midnight when I really should have hit the sack a bit earlier. I slept in late this morning and am now trying to piece together the day so that I feel rested yet productive. Oh, Sunday.


reading : Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love this book!! I've temporarily given up on Those are Real Bullets (don't worry, I'll go back to it), and reading this book reminds me of how much I love/adore/swoon for good literature. I'm hoping to finish reading this one today, but it might also be nice to draw it out a bit longer. 

writing : Thank you notes for past interviews. I also need to answer a few e-mails that have been piling up in my in box. I just wrapped up a couple of posts on my recent trip to Pittsburgh that I'm excited to share this week!

listening : To Gossip Girl season 2 in the background. Also the sound of cars driving on wet pavement outside, which is always soothing.

thinking : Of future adventures! The hubs and I still need to book hotels for our honeymoon, which means planning our itinerary and thinking of how we want to spend our time. I think my parents are also planning a family trip to France over the summer for my dad's birthday, which would be lots of fun. 

smelling : My favorite Mrs. Meyers snickerdoodle candle. It's sweet, but not sickeningly so, and it instantly relaxes me. I need to stock up on these so I can enjoy it for years to come.

wishing : That it were summertime! The episode of Gossip Girl that I'm half-watching is one of the Hamptons episodes, which of course makes me think of the beach and how much I would love to be lounging in a bikini right now. 

hoping : That I will make the right decision when it comes to ranking the sites where I've interviewed. Truthfully, I am really stressed about this!

wearing : Leggings and one of the hubs' flannel shirts. This year I fell in love with J Crew flannel button-downs, but unfortunately the ones I love are no longer in stock. To remedy this, I've taken to raiding the hubs' side of the closet. :)

loving : Being at home. Even though I had a great time in Pittsburgh, I missed the hubs.

wanting : To learn more about photography. I've been having so much fun playing with the hubs' camera, and I'd really like to have a better understanding of all the different settings. He's been toying with the idea of a major camera upgrade, which would be very fun, but I'd like to know how to use it properly.

needing : Some breakfast. Or lunch at this point. I'm moving in slow-motion this morning and haven't progressed past my orange juice. 

feeling : Restless. I need to settle back in to being at home.

clicking : On The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and The Lydia Bennet. They're modern-day, YouTube vlogging-style adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, and I love them!
