Lately | April

Currently AprilThrilled about the weekend I just spent in Tokyo.

Tired but it was worth it.

Proud of an article I just submitted.

Nursing a cup of hot water with honey and a dissolved vitamin C tablet. 

Listening to my favourite podcasts every day on my walk and the Lana Del Rey album when I do errands.

Watching The Good Wife and loving it.

Appreciating all the beautiful Spring flowers blooming. I notice new ones appearing every day.

Missing my family and friends back home a little today, but…

Grateful (very) for the friends I’ve made here.

Putting pumpkin seeds in my morning granola.

Still obsessed with the beach and the waves.

Creating a lot more lately (blogging, podcasting, photographing, writing) and feeling excited about that.

Eating rice or quinoa bowls most nights.

Pinning lots of inspiration and yummy recipes to try.

Jumping around like a maniac doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred in my apartment after work these days.

Resolving to read more and read better, more interesting books.

Happy about my version of the #100HappyDays project and all the lovely everyday photos I’ve been taking as a result of making this intention. You can see them here.

Excited that Love Letter #1 is in the mail en route to its lovely recipient.

Having lots of thoughts about the (my) future.

Already planning for a restful, quiet weekend.

Trying to notice and actively appreciate the magic and the beauty of my days. 

Working on staying present and grounded instead of being nostalgic for another place.

Impressed with myself that I’ve managed to create a life and routine here in Korea (!?) after a relatively short amount of time. I feel miles away from where I was in my last Currently post.

Loving the people I’m lucky enough to know, as always and for forever.

Lately | March

Currently March 5

Staring at my bags, packed in the corner of my otherwise empty room.

Flying to Korea tomorrow.

Amazed at all the synchronicity I’ve experienced as this big move came together. 

Content that I’ve been able to say my goodbyes-for-now to almost all of my loved ones. 

Giggling (still) over how gosh-darn cute these Korean flag cupcakes I made turned out. 

Designing a website & logo for a new venture I’m really excited about.

Drinking a lot of chocolate almond milk and white wine.

Eating a batch of these amazing cookies, one by one. 

Loving the fact that it’s still light out around 6PM nowadays.

Turning pro (slowly but surely) after reading the awesome book.

Editing interesting videos for the Red Tent Sisters

Discovering new podcasts I can fall in love with – the comments section in this article helped! 

Nervous about starting to teach children on Monday.

Staying positive. 

Grateful for all the love and supportive words I’ve gotten from everyone around me about my move to Korea. 

Resolving to get back to my yoga practice + start taking more photos again. 

Filling notebooks with ideas and quotes. 

Planning to watch all this year’s Oscar-nominated movies…of course, now that the Oscars are over, right?

Happy to be escaping the frigid temperatures and snow to go to a warmer climate. 

Excited/disbelieving/overwhelmed by the fact that in a few days I will be living in Korea. 

Feeling BLESSED. It’s a wild and wonderful life. 

Lately | May

Feeling tired, but happy.

Craving sleep, a home-cooked meal, and a back massage.

Enjoying warm weather, picnics, and happy hours!

Reading Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and giggling, a lot.

Thinking about going back to bed for half an hour.

Grateful that I have a job, friends who love me, and that my family is healthy and happy.

Excited to watch our little cherry tomato plant grow.

Watching the last few episodes of Game of Thrones!

Happy to feel like I’m finally coming into my own in some ways.

Brainstorming lists for/of exciting new projects.

Wishing there were a few more hours in the day.

Getting more enthusiastic about running.

Eating far too many cold bagels for my liking, not enough fresh fruit and homemade pizza.

Obsessed with Instagram and now VSCO cam.

Crazy about this playlist.

Entertaining the idea of creating a bar, so we can make margaritas at home.

Hoping to make it through the day with a smile on my face.

Sending you happy vibes for a Happy Monday.
