Happy Sunday! Welcome to another Small Collection, a series I started to help me focus on the things that bring me joy. 

Can you believe it’s Labor Day weekend? That also means it’s the unofficial End of Summer. Cue the violins. Back when I started this weekly gratitude list right after Memorial Day, I was planning to do it just for the summer, as an experiment of sorts. I’ve come to enjoy it so much, though, that I’m going to continue into fall. Taking a few moments each week to note a few things that made me happy.

Here’s a list from this past week:

1.) Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel — sort of.

2.) Roasted figs with Greek fro-yo.

3.) No longer able to resist the siren call of the Vegetti, I broke down and bought on the other day while I was at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Oh dear. It is awesome. #gratuitouspaleohashtagveggetti pasta

4.) Oysters and wine with my mom the other night. Is #MotherDaughterHappyHour a thing yet?


5.) I kind of can’t stand the cuteness when Eli brings his toys onto his bed. It’s kind of a recent thing—I wonder if it’s because I bring a few toys onto my bed at night so he has something to do if he wakes up. As opposed to trying to play with me while I’m trying to sleep, of course. Does anyone else do this or am I just weird/prone to over-thinking these things? Eli and toys

Anyways, cheers to a great summer!
