today, i’m feeling thankful for/totally digging:
*weekends at the beach/lake/out of the city. it’s no secret around here that although i love the craziness of my city life, i neeeeed my weekends out in some sort of naturey place, be it a beach or my parents’ lakehouse or wherever the wind takes me. i’ve been capitalizing on the beautiful weekends we’ve been having this summer and getting out to a watery haven almost every single weekend, and this weekend will be no exception: back to Montauk with the girls it is, tomorrow afternoon! we all have our happy places, and the beach is definitely mine.
*new friends. you know those nights where you plan to go out for a casual drink or two to celebrate a friend’s birthday and then you unexpectedly meet some amazing people with whom you know you’re going to become fast friends? yep, happened to me last night. this sort of thing makes me so excited about life, as silly as that might sound. people are my favorite things, the best parts of my life, and i woke up happy today to have met some really great people and had such a fun time last night.
*my new work home. really stoked about our new office in the World Financial Center. such an upgrade, you don’t even knowww. views of the Hudson River and these massive yachts that i’m dying to get myself on; brand spanking new everythingggg; a much better cafeteria. bam.
*short runs. haven’t been hitting the long ones lately, so i’m happy with these guys from this past week and trying to just stay positive and be thankful I CAN RUN!
*country music. i’ve just started to listen to it the past couple of months, and i have to say — all those years of turning my nose up at this genre might have been wasted ones. totally digging it lately and finding it to be perfect for my summer runs. that duo from The Voice a couple of seasons ago, The Swon Brothers? loving their song “Later On.” on repeat, all the day.
*these wonderful humans.
my life in NYC just wouldn’t be the same without these faces in it on the regular. so, so thankful to have found great girls with whom to do alllll the things, alllllll the time. exhausted after a weekend at the Jersey Shore, sleep-deprived and waiting for a train, and still haven’t had enough pix from another weekend away? check. these girls have made my summer that much more amazing.
*hope. because we need some, every day.
hope you’re having a good Thursday, friends!
What’s up for the weekend?
Country music: yay or nay?
How’s the running going lately, runners?
