Loving It.

What your girl Snap’s been loving as of late.

. . .

  1. The Toy Story Franchise. Toddler Snap has really taken to these movies, which we watch in succession nearly everyday. (Well, okay. Let’s be fair: We make it through the series about every other day.) Anyway, color me impressed, yo. Being a 90s kid, I sure as hell saw the original when it came out. But that was the only one I’d ever seen, until a few weeks ago. And let me tell you: they’re brilliant. So. Well. Done. They’ve also made me cry like a baby (or, more accurately, a postpartum mom). Toy Story 3? It’s perfect. How precious childhood–and life–truly is.
  2. All the Drinks. Okay, not all. But now that my body is back to being my own, I’m all about the iced coffees. And IPAs. It’s so nice to savor the simple things again: to sip artisanal drinks like only a hipster knows how.
  3. Our Stash. Two years of living in a pandemic will make just about anyone reevaluate their home. We’ve done our fair share of online shopping–our Amazon rewards are almost embarrassing at this point–but we’ve also utilized the things we have. In fact, I sort of unofficially proclaimed 2022 as The Year of The Used. Instead of buying more–more body products, more coffee mugs, more candles–I’m making myself dig inside forgotten drawers. There’s a surprising amount of goodies, from shopping trips long since past. It feels good to bring them back to life.

. . .

Wishing you some simple pleasures today, friends.

  1. My family has declared a ‘year of the used’ before, too. It could be really interesting what you can do with things you forgot you had.

    1. It’s so true. It’s amazing how many things we accumulate and then rarely use! I’m making a vow to really use what I buy. 😎

  2. all of the Toy Stories were great.

    and for me, nothing like a good basic lager, or a Guinness…

    1. Since you like Toy Story, I’ll try not to hold your “basic” beer tastes against you. πŸ˜›

      1. I appreciate that. But I did have a Guinness on St. Paddy’s Day, which is my favorite day, and beer πŸ™‚
