23 Loves

Today is my birthday! And in the grand tradition of my birthdays for the past few years, here is my bday LIST of now twenty-THREE things I love. This is getting tooo long to do pics for all of them so only a select few of my favorite things will be pictured this year. Wahh I'm getting oldddd. Check out 21 and 22 loves here to see how I've grown.. Not much, I'm afraid.

#s 1-4: I love my family, Braddie, Rosie, Mona&Diddley. They share this top tier in no particular order! (They are ridiculously competitive.)

5: I love all the rest of my family. I am extremely blessed to have a small but very tight knit family. Most people have aunts, uncles, a grandfather, cousins, etc. that they love obviously but aren't all that close to - I can brag that we as a family are extremely close. We all get together for every random person's birthday - aunts, uncles, etc., we all live close by each other, I can always count on some random family member showing up at every craft show I do (even when I don't ask them to come or know they're coming!) to get me lunch or watch my booth while I take a bathroom break. (It's awesome to look up at a craft show and see your grandfather wandering around looking for you) and I know we all just really genuinely care about each other.

6: I love remembering my childhood and am so stoked that this is my Michael Jordaaaaaaan year. Space Jam was my favorite movie for a long time and even now when it comes on Cartoon Network, my best friend from childhood always texts me to let me know that the best movie of all time is on. :) Brad's only requirement for our wedding is to be announced like they did for MJ way back when, walk in, someone throw him a basketball, he dribbles down the "court" twice, and dunks the ball.

7: I love making things. I love figuring stuff out. It comes from my mom. A few weeks ago, I managed to remake a shelf in my house and fix my sewing machine in the same 2-day span! It was exhileratingg. My mom is a fix-it lady. My mom put wood floor through her house all by herself. My mom built her dad a headboard all by herself. My mom kicks ass. Although she will probably pinch me for cursing later on today.

8: I love my business, I love my brand(s) and I love my blog. Handmade Habitat. Of Cats and Crafts. Rubble VintageSunday Blossoms - the newest installment of my crafty bloggy life.


9: I love Takoma Park. I've been living here for officially a year now and I definitely don't want to ever move. (Our lease started on my bday last year!) Favorite TKPK Spots: Trohv, The Olive Lounge, the Farmer's Market, Capital City Cheesecake (where the pic below is from) and the Takoma Bistro where I am currently sitting typing.


10: I love my grown-up apartment.

11: I love going places. Was super lucky this year to be able to go to Barcelona, London and Paris this March and see one of my besties and my baby sister. Who is also a bestie.


12: I love my car. I have a little blue Honda Fitt and I love that thing to death! I've got it down to a science on how to fit everything inside it that I need for craft shows. And it has never failed me!

13: I love Fenton Street Market. I got my start out there with my business and it's grown so much since! I'm soo happy to be able to work for the market now. It is actually the best job anyone could ever ask for.

Now let's let these things go a little faster...
14: I love ETSY! I am on Etsy all dayyy and all night. There is just so much creativity out there in the world and I'm so happy that the site took off as well as it did. We are re-making the world!
15: I love Pinterest. Too much. Brad calls it Procrastipinning. Which is pretty accurate for what I do on there.
16: I love vintage!
17: I love The Office. So sad it's officially ended. I think I will spend the afternoon re-watching the entire series.
18: I love the DC craft scene. You wouldn't think it, but DC has great artists, crafters and awesome creative people.
19: I love Madewell - my favorite store.
20. I love coffee. and croissants especially.
21: I love Luri and Wilma - the magazine/blog of the coolest craftiest vintagiest fun to be had in DC.
22: I love love love peruvian chicken. I have a spot that I go to wayy too often. They recognize me and it's embarrassing. I cannot keep having relationships with people who work at restaurants.
23: And lastly, I love you. Thanks for your support over the years. :)
