wine and love // 21

Wine and Love 

Wine and Love 

was started by Nora, and now it's being hosted by Suki at Super Duper Fantastic!

The concept is simple – each Thursday, you list out what’s driving you to grab a glass of wine and what you’re loving.

Head over to Super Duper Fantastic to grab the button, and join in if you’d like!

This isn't going to be a traditional Wine and Love. 
I guess the wine-drinking (or tequila-drinking, or gin-drinking, or beer-drinking) items are that Mike and I broke up this week and we're dealing with a lot of logistical stuff, and I can't remember the last time I slept for more than 5 hours at a time. But it's difficult for me to look at these things as bad, or even as annoyances. I firmly believe that attitude is the most important thing, so I'm staying positive and looking at the bright side of everything. I may not have a fiance anymore, I may not be planning our wedding anymore, but Mike and I are good friends and we'll remain good friends for, like, ever. Which is awesome. I mean, not many people have an engagement break up and can say (and mean) that. Also, I may not be sleeping, but I'm having fun. So there's that!

Now onto the long, long, long list of loves... in no particular order:

Love Love Love Love Love Love Love

 * Looking on the bright side of all the things.
 * ALL OF YOU. Holy shit, never in my life have I felt more love, support, and good vibes coming my way from all across the country. You, my friends, are incredible.
 * Van Morrison's Moondance.
 * Mom, for everything, not the least of which are letting me borrow her ELO album and yelling at me when I'm being loud and drunk on the street late at night.

 * Honest conversations and laundry.
 * Dad and the two barstools in Pentagon City.
 * Coffee, oh my gosh, coffee. And Aleve. These two go together.
 * Pizza, beer, hockey, pterodactyls, Squidbillies, and Wong's Burger, hahahaha.
 * Late-night phone calls.
 * Twitter.
 * Sunshiney days, the sunroof in my car, and awesome music on the radio.
 * Lots of laughter.
 * Reconnecting with the things that I enjoy.
 * Possibilities.
