QUESTION: What are you looking forward to?

After being inspired by Grace Atwood of The Stripe (who was inspired by Cupcakes and Cashmere), I wanted to pass this question along to all of you:

What are you looking forward to?

With all of the uncertainty and anxiety of the past year, it’s nice to pause a moment and just daydream about what’s to come. Good things. Fun things. New places. Adventures.

Here are a few of the things that made my list:


I imagine this is a big one for a lot of people!

After planning an international trip that was supposed to happen in the summer of 2020, I’m hoping this is the summer I finally get to go. But I’m even excited about the idea of smaller road trips. At this point, it doesn’t even have to be anything extravagant, just a change of scenery.

Talking to strangers

As an introvert, this was a funny thing to realize.

But I do miss the days of NOT crossing the street to avoid coming within 6 feet of a stranger. Or being able to ask people if I can pet their dogs. Ok.. maybe I just miss petting stranger’s dogs?

Shopping for clothes

I know that store fitting rooms almost always have the worst, most unflattering lighting, but I look forward to being able to shop for clothing in person and being able to try things on.

Yes, I could order clothes online. However, I like to feel the clothes, see the clothes, and not have to pay for shipping. And don’t even get me started on the return process of having to print a label, re-package the item, go to the post office, etc.

I look forward to walking in a store and finding out right then and there if something fits or not. 

Being spontaneous

I’m looking forward to being much more spontaneous with all options on the table: being able to invite friends to dinner, going to the movies, taking a road trip, checking out a new brewery, booking flights etc.

Right now, everything just feels… unsafe and constricted  I look forward to being able to do what I feel like, when I feel like it.

So, what are YOU looking forward to? Leave me your list in the comments below.
