Checking In

6/16/2014


I spotted this over on Design Love Fest (where Alexa was featured last week, by the way!) and wanted to fill it out. Would love to know what you're learning, drinking, reading, and more so tell me in the comments!

Eating / At all of my favorite places in San Diego before we, gulp, move to San Francisco this weekend.

Drinking / Rosé all day. Just kidding. Maybe.

Practicing / Awareness. This is such a busy time so I'm trying to check in with myself and take it all in.

Mastering / How to make the perfect at-home espresso. The secret: a milk frother.

Learning / That we have way more things than I thought! I purge regularly but there is still so. much. stuff.

Trying / To soak up San Diego. I've been so lucky to live here for the past 10 years.

Playing / First Aid Kit has been my packing soundtrack. Mellow Swedish tunes during a hectic time.

Finishing / One thing at a time. I am a good multi-tasker, but I am trying to be better at starting and finishing one task in one sitting when possible.

Reading / I just started The Vacationers. It's the perfect light summer read I was looking for.

Remembering / So many things! From switching our mailing address to picking up the dry cleaning, my pre-move to-do list is long.

Wearing / A bathing suit (underneath my clothes!). Hoping to take a break from packing to sneak out to the beach.

Cooking / Simple solo meals. And I may or may not have had multiple bowls of cereal for dinner one night this week. I'm an adult, I do what I want.

Working / I don't start my new job until next week, so I'm off this week! (If you count packing and blogging as "off").

Traveling / Does the move to San Francisco count? 

Wanting / To stop time. Just for a little bit?

Love this, Kirby! I've been dying to learn how to make an espresso at home, so I'll definitely have to grab myself a milk frother. Best of luck packing! And moving to San Francisco totally counts as traveling!

Good luck, Kirby! This is so exciting -- maybe I'll get to finally meet you since we will both be in San Francisco. ;) Glad I'm not the only one eating cereal for dinner! Best wishes for a smooth move!

An attention-grabbing submit. I suppose your reviews are expressive and also founded. Think nearly everybody agreed within this thread.
