Happy Father's Day, to a dad who would do anything for his family. A dad who is always working on a project on the weekend. A dad who grills a mean steak. A dad I know I can always pick up the phone & call. I love you, Dad.
reading Where'd You Go, Bernadette, & absolutely loving it. I finished A Thousand Splendid Suns on Thursday - it was moving, & upsetting, & haunting. It really made me think. No book has ever made me more thankful to be an American.
writing applications that I hope will prove fruitful. Also, book proposals. Yep, you heard that right. And I'm excited. Also, a new blogging project, which I'll share in a couple of weeks.
listening to summermood2013, which, I think, is a compendium of the very best summer songs that two thousand thirteen has to offer. What are you listening to this summer? I have a big love for summery music. I will be sharing SM2013 tomorrow here on siddathornton!
thinking a light-hearted read was a good idea after Splendid Suns. I was going to read Hosseini's third novel immediately after, but it is currently checked out of all the libraries in Wilmington, & like I said, I needed something lighter after the emotion-wrenching experience that was Splendid Suns.
smelling like Burberry Brit a lot lately. It will always be one of my top favorites. It's a warm, comforting, timeless scent.
wishing for a shiny new pair of tennis shoes. Mine have been in commission since 2008. There's no telling how many miles they've clocked.
hoping for a wonderful day for my Dad. He deserves it.
wearing summery dresses outside & then big, bulky sweaters in class. Beach weather outside & Antarctica inside. It's interesting.
loving the snack foods we've filled our house with. And the fact that we had corn dogs for dinner one night this past week.
wanting to live more simply & with more intention.
needing... REALLY NEEDING to make water consumption a bigger part of my life. Like, really.
feeling lucky, blessed, happy, content, & every other good thing. I am grateful for my life.
clicking Tumblr a lot lately. I have a productivity blog over there, where all my to-do lists live.
