I have dealt with a horrible bout of creative constipation all month. My create/consume ratio was off - too much of the former, not enough of the latter - so I am making it a point to watch more movies, listen to more music and read more print articles. 

I found this issue of Kinfolk magazine one randomly lovely afternoon. The day included catching up with Laura over lunch at my favorite Korean BBQ restaurant, window shopping for puppies at Petland and dessert at a local rolled ice cream shop. It was one of the cutest ice cream shops I had ever visited, and their selling point was coffee: coffee ice cream. The whole place smelled better than any Starbucks could ever hope to, and the aroma hit me as soon as I walked through the door. Even though I had absolutely no taste for ice cream (or coffee), I felt the need to sit and stay awhile. So that's what we did. 

I grabbed this magazine from a shelf on the wall and saw it featured an interview with Jurnot Diaz, one of my favorite authors. Never in my life did I think I'd be paying $18 for a single magazine issue (I usually get them for free), but this one was worth every penny.

In an effort to streamline my goals, responsibilities (both social and professional), deadlines and achievements, I started bullet journaling. My setup is as basic as it gets, but it has been a great one-stop-shop for all the things that float through my mind each day. In my "brain dump" section, I wrote how this year I want to share more real-life moments, because sometimes even the most mundane aspects of life are worth sharing and celebrating.
