Little joys

You know my feelings about Tuesdays—or if you don't, I won't go into details yet again, but I usually don't work on Tuesdays, and they're usually fun, joyful days for me.

(audio) podcast recommendations from friends

a comfy, grey tank I found at anthro for $15, perfect for all the layering

driving in the car with Nicholas, listening to Perry Como, the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, etc. on my daily mix on spotify
