Good books. Cloudy lemonade (an adult bevvie). Brightly coloured washi tape and stickers. Sunny days. Flowers in our yard.
Since I last did a Currently post, I've finished three books: LOVE FORTUNES AND OTHER DISASTERS by Kimberly Karalius, which was a cute and fun read; THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART by Jessi Kirby, my new favourite read by this author ♥; and THE WRATH & THE DAWN by Renée Ahdieh, which for the most part I really enjoyed (loved the swoon!). Now I'm reading MOONGLASS by Jessi Kirby. She's quickly becoming one of my absolute favourite YA authors! (I loved GOLDEN as well.)
The hubs and I blitzed through season one of Agent Carter, which we both really enjoyed. Such a great character and a great time period. We've also been catching up on movies we missed in the theatre: The D.U.F.F. → totally fun even if it wasn't quite like the book (Mae Whitman + Robbie Amell were adorable); Kingsman: The Secret Service → odd but still very good; Maleficent → I really, really liked this take on the Sleeping Beauty story; and Exodus: Gods and Kings → enjoyable enough, and WAAAAY better than that Noah travesty, but mostly sort of meh (still mind-boggled by the casting choices).
Still totally hung up on "Brothers In Arms" off the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack. I may have a problem, folks.
At the time that I'm writing this (Monday night), we've made the spur of the moment decision to hop in the car and spend the day in Banff, which is nestled in the Canadian Rockies. It will be nice to get away even just for a bit. And the Rockies are just beautiful, so I can't wait! Also thinking about a job interview I have scheduled for Wednesday. 0_o #nervous

It's almost time for Ready. Set. WRITE! again, and I'm so eager to get going! For those of you who don't know what RSW is, it's a summer writing intensive (June 8th - August 31st) co-hosted by Alison Miller, Katy Upperman, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazkij, and me. This is the third year we've hosted, and it's always tons of fun. For more details, check out this post!
For a general sense of contentment. For the ability to see and embrace the good things in my life and to place more value on them rather than on the things that bum me out, stress me out, make me angry. It bothers me that I find this tough.
Connecting with friends over great books, planner/sticker/washi nerdiness, and pretty painted nails. ♥
So tell me, what are you currently up to?
