♥ Going the the movies alone. I really don't know why I love going to the movies alone so much. I don't think I had the ovaries to do it until I was 22 or 23, but it feels so luxurious. It's just such a treat! I even bought myself Junior Mints. >:)
♥ The merciful end of summer heat. No explanation necessary. The Midwest heat has been unbearable. I don't even have a tan!
♥ Blog love! SO many thanks to Shannon at The Simply Luxurious Life for featuring me in her weekly Cups of Tea this past Sunday. It means a lot to me, especially since my blog is still just a baby! If you guys don't already have The Simply Luxurious Life in your Google Reader, add it now! She updates a TON - especially for a teacher! - and has beautiful, inspiring posts. Love! (And Shannon, if you ever want to talk H.S. English teaching strategies, I'm your girl ;))
♥ My handy, handsome Boyfriend. The other night Boyfriend said, "If I'm allowed... you're a pretty lucky girl." And he's right.
♥ Summer houses. The only bright spot in leaving Boyfriend this weekend. We have a summer house in Northern New York that I haven't been to much in the last few years and I'm looking forward to spending a few weekends there, relaxing on the porch with a good book (and maybe some local wine?) and catching up on my afternoon naps.
