Summer Sabbatical

East Coast Bound, Baby!
I've dubbed my upcoming departure as my 'summer sabbatical.'
I'm off on a nearly 2.5 week jaunt back in the northeast.
I could almost squeal!
There are sisters to goof around with,
and parents to hug very tight.
Cats to snuggle,
flowers to smell,
and a chaise lounge chair in my backyard that has been
calling my name since last summer.
The biggest pieces of the trip though?
Two whoopers of weddings.
I can't wait to boogie with my buddies,
and share a toast of love.
A few short days more...

Badum, Badum, Badum...

Shark Week kicks off with host Andy Sandberg on July 31st.
Who's with me on this one?
Equal parts educational,
 mixed with "hurts so good"
Us fine NorCal folk
 have shark sightings now and again too.
I snapped this last month while beaching in Bolinas....
Happy Swimming!

Sails Are Set

Exhale on three.
I hope you find yourself perched on the top of a sailboat,
hanging around in striped bloomers,
letting the sun warm your toesies.
Nice way to spend the day, isn't it?
So divine.
Happy Weekending!

Lazy Days of Summer...

Hello, Friends.
Happy lazy days of summer.
It's been a while, since we swapped stories, hasn't it?
July is full of magic and promise, wouldn't you agree?
Friends and I had a star spangled July 4th- in every sense of the phrase.
We let the sun kiss our faces and inhaled that crisp mountain air.
Bared it all and jumped into the icy waters of Lake Tahoe,
and slept under the stars...
Friends back east are firefly catching and corn cob eating,
I am sure of that.
My mom and sisters are exploring the garden and
eating tomatoes and basil picked from the yard.
It is summer... everywhere.
I wish I could bottle up the season from both coasts,
and take a deep breath each morning when it gets cold and foggy.
A reminder of carefree days.
Happy Summer, my friends.
