i've been thinking about all of the mini adventures i've been having lately. even though i've been kind of feeling down (a lot sometimes) about not finding a job, i'm actually loving my life right now. i love having the free time to just do things i want to do. i often get to visit miguel, meet lizzie for coffee, or just spend a few hours crafting. anyway, i just wanted to share a few photos from the mini adventures i've been having.
1. (see above photos) the donut shop around the corner from my house is moving in a few months. i'm so sad. i have fond childhood memories of my dad bringing home a pink box of donuts once in a while on friday nights. so, one friday night my parents & i visited it one last time & picked up a dozen. i just love the pretty pink packaging they come in. (i think i'll start a #prettypinkpackaging collection.) my favorite donut is a tie between glazed old fashion & maple old fashion. delicious!
2. as you know, i've been looking for a full-time job. i went to a job fair for the first time. it was a good experience! employers were asking for resumes & business cards, i got a call back, etc. anyways, on the way back home (it was an hour & a half away...) i stopped in the town where miguel works & met him for his lunch break at the european deli we both like. it was so simple, but pretty perfect.
while i was waiting for miguel to go on his lunch, i passed an indie theater that was showing the grand budapest hotel! i was so so excited. it was really hard to find places that were playing that film near where i lived. so i had to see it. after we had lunch i said goodbye to miguel & bought a ticket for the next showing. i had never been to the theater by myself before, but i kind of liked it! it somehow made the film so much more personal? i don't know how to explain it, but it was such a good experience & definitely an adventure! (the movie is fantastic by the way!)
nicola! i asked miguel, "can we go here whenever i miss england?" & he said, "yeah." & i said, "good." so it looks like we will be back! haha.
