things I love ♥

Today was awesome from top to bottom.
My Valentine's Day post was pretty much completely about romantic love.
So today let's take it in a different direction and talk about things I love (and things you love!  leave them in the comments!).

♥the view of the Empire State Building from my bed-- especially on Valentine's Day, when it was red and pink!

♥getting quality Mom-time last weekend.  We had so much fun and listened to so much good music and had delicious food like the phenomenal bouillabaisse at Lillie's.  And she gave me a Valentine's Day card with cat stickers!  She knows me so well.

♥finishing all my homework by 10 pm and having a few hours to blog, crochet, watch movies, read-- anything!

♥A Fine Frenzy.  I go in phases with Alison Sudol's beautiful music.  I listen to the same few songs over-and-over-and-over and then I don't listen to them for months.  Right now I am in l-o-v-e with these two.

'steel and concrete break beneath the steady waves of fearless hope and grace, in kindness there is strength.'  
this is life-philosophy material.

♥getting closer to spring and waking up to sunshine instead of darkness

♥little signs that my Dad is still looking out for me

♥peanut butter and homemade strawberry jam and cold milk.

♥New York Fashion Week!  I'm putting together a 'favorite's of fashion week' post so you can see what caught my fancy.  (hint: it's a lot of full skirts and pastels.  shocking.)

♥having an internship that I'm excited to spend extra days at.  I can't believe how lucky I was with this one!  For newer readers, I intern at Allison Parris New York, with the lovely little group of ladies in the design studio.  And it is seriously wonderful.

♥that feeling of waking up and realizing I cleaned my room the night before.

♥my morning cup of tea!  lately I'm on a peppermint kick.

♥twinkle lights.  I keep mine up year-round.  They give just enough light to read by, but little enough light that turning off all my other lights for half an hour before bed makes me relaxed and sleepy.

♥wonderfully hot showers.

♥the moon
♥waking up thirsty in the middle of the night and having nice cool water in a ceramic mug.

night night
