Taking Stock No. 2

As September draws to a close, I thought this would be a perfect time to reflect and take stock!

Liking: the Serial Podcast – amazing
Waiting: for my office remodel to be complete. Excited!

Snacking: on Starbucks’ Cheese and Fruit Bistro Box
Coveting: my co-workers navy silk shirt with a ruffled front. Gorgeous.
Hearing: the “whoosh” of air conditioning. Enough! Can we turn that off now??
Learning: to use Microsoft Project. Ugh.

Loving: the little jokes my husband texts me
Watching: a YouTube video by my fave blogger, Lydia Elise Millen
