Hi there, friend! I’ve been busy since I last checked in with a happiness post. Let’s see…
I went to Pennsylvania to check out Happy Place, which is very aptly named (stay tuned for tons of photos in my Instagram like this one and a video montage!).
I drove to DC to participate in my 8th (9th? I really need to sit down and count) No Pants Subway Ride! It was so much fun and we even got in the Washington Post! I’m about to make the post for that, so stay tuned!
I started a new tradition of having a Dad Daughter Date Day every month, and my dad and I went exploring in Bethesda to a fabric store, a CBD store, a witch store, and IKEA. We got lunch and dinner, talked and caught up on so much, I even got to show him my planner, and of course he insisted on washing my car! Oh, dads. I love mine so much.
I finally did something I’ve been meaning to do, involving dressing in all red, bringing a tiny inflatable tube man, and finding a giant inflatable tube man. I posted it online and the feedback was incredible, including Kaitlin Olson (from It’s Always Sunny, my favorite show, who this video was inspired by), reposting me! Hell yes!
There have also been several magical synchronicity moments where I’ve stopped to rethink things and enjoy life, like the epiphany I had on my walk, blowing bubbles at the National Mall as the sunset and seeing my vision board come to life, and something that I’ve been waiting eleven years for, almost to the day, happened. I had to pull over on the side of the road during rush hour in the freezing cold wearing almost no clothes to witness it, but it made me sob uncontrollable happy tears, remembering that I am where I need to be. Want to see what I’m talking about? Keep scrolling!

Finally getting to see a murmuration of the magnitude I’ve always wanted (see below for the video)
Extra Sparkle: * Packing bags of activities for road trips * Hugging the biggest rubber duck ever * Wearing glittery fishnets so much * Seeing Joe and me together in the Washington Post * Watching Obvious Child, Leslie Jones’ new stand up * Such sincere reviews for my planner, I’m so touched! * Not even realizing I was in the biggest mall in the US * Realizing I didn’t lose my wallet * Stories about my farting in my sleep (I am hilarious 24/7) * Seeing that your ex is doing well * Dark Hershey’s chocolate miniatures * Comfy socks as a gift from Laura * Having an epiphany on my walk about not being stuck (I did a whole video about it!) * Having the house to myself for an evening to run wild * Opportunities for small gigs from friends to make extra money * Refreshing my wealth corner (Feng Shui) with new bamboo, a jade plant, dusting, etc.
