“It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.”

The Coffee: 22 is a strange age to say the least. Recently when I met up with some girlfriends, we found the conversation took a turn to finance, bills, jobs and a vast array of serious things that I don’t want to worry about! I am determined to be responsible, but not sweat the small stuff. With a collegeless life in my palms, I’m finding new time to rekindle my hobbies. I am going to start painting again and fill the blank wall behind my bed with a glorious landscape (sunflowers involved). I am completing the Metro daily crosswords. I am writing. I am reading (just started a 10 book fantasy series). Optimism is my best friend today as I realize all the possibilities on the path to my quarter life! Don’t worry, I found time to begin my 401k and budget my monthly bills too 😉

The Cream and Sugar: I love Fall the same reason I love Spring, non-extreme hot/cold weather. Except for one exception: pumpkin.

Here are my favorite pumpkin things thus far:

Pumpkin Beer: I can not get enough of this stuff. I am a fan of Wachusett and ShipYard, not so much for Shock Top’s version.

Pumpkin K-Cups: We just starting getting these in the office and they are such a nice pick-me-up in the morning! I wonder what they would be like with a dash of cinnamon in them?

Pumpkin Pie: I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving at my house and can’t wait to make it again! I use two recipes, one for the pie and one for the AH-mazing topping (seriously this topping makes it, and the pie recipe is a little healthier than the latter).

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies: I haven’t tried these yet, but it’s only a matter of time! This is the best recipe I found from SweetPea’sKitchen blog.

We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same…

The Coffee: I saw Midnight in Paris yesterday, and I must admit, this is a summer bucket list priority! Little did I know this Woody Allen creation would send me tumbling to memories of my favorite artists, writers, and poets of the 1920’s and make me long to skip over to the nearest Museum and drool over Monets, Picassos and Degas’. The main premise of this story is yearning for a life more glamerous than your own. The protagonist, Owen Wilson, learns to accept his own reality as the best because you can’t keep living in a fantasy. Everyone has an idol, even your own idol. This week I try to channel this into my own life by getting being excited about the present I live in.

The Cream and Sugar: I am moving semi outside Boston in the fall. For once in 4 years, I will have my own room. Mind you, I am an only child, so 4 years wasn’t much to compromise after an entire lifetime of aloneness. I am especially excited for this new move because this is THE move from college living to *real* living. I’m throwing out the sticky wall tape, heading to Home Depot and buying some goddamn nails. I am also saying no to tapestries. First things first, I want pretty wall art.

While I would love a room like this…

 

 

 

 

 

I suppose I can settle for this gorgeous number…
