Loving: yoga! I have found a yoga studio in my new city that I absolutely love. It is small and intimate and they teach a really strong vinyasa flow class so even though it’s not hot yoga I get a serious sweat going. My 10-class punch card just ran out so I plan to purchase an unlimited membership going forward and my goal is to go 3x per week.
Thinking: about winter! Ha ha. I know, I know you are probably thinking ‘Amber, but why?’ but I now live in a very northern city and not to sound too Game of Throne’s-ish but winter is coming and it will be here for a long time. I really want to focus on appreciating winter and enjoying it so hope to take up a few new outdoor hobbies such as cross country skiing this winter!
Feeling: like I really need a haircut! Luckily I have one booked for August 31!
Anticipating: a few more fun summer weekends! We are going camping two more times before the beginning of September and since we just bought a second kayak I am looking forward to more time out on the lake kayaking!
Watching: Gilmore Girls still. I am over halfway through the last season so almost done *tear*. Then I think I will move onto The Good Wife as it has been recommended to me so many times!
Working: on some exciting stuff at work. I’ve missed the reward of working in non-profit a bit the last 5 months but this week we had our first Community Investment meeting at my new company and I’m excited to start giving back in a different way through my new role.
Grateful: for financial stability. I found an old budget spreadsheet the other day from when I first graduated university (which was already 6 years ago – crazy!) and I was making less in one month than I do in one paycheque now. *insert laughing so hard I’m crying emoticon here* For the first time in a very long time I am feeling super financially stable and OK about some very big expenses that are coming down the pipe for us including buying another home and some travel plans.
Listening: I just started listening to the podcast Invisibilia after hearing so many people talking about it. I haven’t even listened to one full episode yet though so I can’t weigh in.
Wishing: that we owned a cabin on a lake we could escape to every weekend! Last weekends escape to that small cabin was so so blissful. #lifegoals
What are you thinking about, grateful for and wishing for these days?
