I haven't done a "Currently" post in quite some time, so here's a little of what we've been up to lately:
*Listening: I've been listening to music like crazy this winter-- partially because I work too slowly when I'm trying to watch tv or movies. Things on the docket include: the newest Violents EP, Girls, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, and Hospitality. Oh, and you can find me on Spotify if you feel like judging how much I (still) listen to Rilo Kiley.
*Watching: Like I said, I haven't been watching a ton of television lately, but we just saw "Inherent Vice" by Paul Thomas Anderson (who I love, love, love) and I adored it. I've talked to a lot of people who weren't that into it, but I thought it was great and I can't wait to see it again.
*Doing: Besides playing shows in our band every weekend, I've been keeping busy with work (duh) and friend time. I've had an abundance of really great coffee and drink dates recently. Friends are a really great way for me to keep those winter (or non winter) blues away. I've had a lot of laughs and a lot of tears over lattes or beers in the past several weeks, and I'm so thankful to have friends who care the way they do.
*Planning: I mentioned in my resolutions post how ready I am for a vacation, and we've started looking into some potential destinations. I can't wait to take a little time off with the family and just soak up what's around us. More short-term plans include traveling for Dr. Dog and Jenny Lewis concerts (and yes, I did just see Jenny in Nashville a few months ago). I just can't help myself.
*Growing: When it's too cold to be doing any outdoor planting, I find myself going a little overboard with the amount of plants I bring home. Actually, I just brought in three more plant friends yesterday. We only have good light on one side of our living room, so one half is just completely overrun with green things, and the sad other side just gets a few baby succulents. Oh, I also learned that if you over-water a big, standing cactus it will break right in half. Learning as I go. ;)
As always, thanks for reading this little blog, friends. In the months where I feel less inspired and feel like I'm not on my A-game, I feel extra thankful that people come back to my corner of the interwebs. Loyalty is something I cherish above all. You guys are cool. xo.
