love list.

Right now I'm loving...

1. Call the Midwife. I was looking for a new show to binge watch, and I came across this gem. Are you a Downton Abbey fan? Do you love England and the BBC and babies and the 1950s? Then this show is up your alley. Season 2 just became available on Netflix, and I'm already halfway through my second viewing. This show is wonderful. The characters, the plot, everything. It addresses women's issues, childbirth, class roles, etc. in a very real, and pretty blunt, way. Jenny Lee has the most romantic British accent I've ever heard, and Sister Monica Joan is about the greatest character on TV right now. I'm dying to read the book the show is based on. Watch it and let me know what you think.

2. '60s music. This is probably because of the above mentioned Call the Midwife, but right now I'm really into music from the 1960s. The Supremes, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, The Beatles, you know. Plus, it's fun to listen {and dance} to when you're baking in the kitchen. {This song and this song will put you in a better mood instantly.}

3. Which brings us to PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP EVERYTHING. Bread, cheesecake, cookies, the whole shebang. My inner domestic goddess always comes out in full force come September and October, and generally doesn't leave until the holidays are over. So I've been constantly covered in flour and running out of canned pumpkin.

4. Cozy, oversized sweaters. H&M, you're killing it with your sweaters this season. And you're also killing my wallet. It's the worst kind of love/hate relationship.

5. Free lunch at work. For the last few days there's been Cafe Rio and pizza, and I'm not complaining. It's something I could get used to.

6. Yoga every day. I found a Youtube channel that has a 30 day yoga challenge, and each 20 minute video focuses on a different part of your body, yoga aspect, whatever. I do it first thing in the morning and I feel zen and calm and serene and all that for the rest of the day. Serenity now.

7. These boots. They're on my wish list and I will have them, dang it.

What are you loving right now?
