Summer Refresh

Now that Dash is getting a little older and the days are getting a little longer, I feel like I’m finally starting to come out of the fog of early motherhood. My interest in silly things that lift the spirits is returning: getting my nails done, having a picnic, arriving at preschool drop-off looking like something other than a zombie. I’m planning to spruce up my wardrobe for summer and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans and a simple striped top. It’s been ages since I bought anything new! I’ve even started reading a novel. (Has anyone else read The Goldfinch? It’s fantastic!) Finn will be out of school in less than a month and we’ll be spending the summer trying out some new activities–karate, tap, gymnastics–taking day trips to the beach, visiting my sister in Portland and heading to swim classes with both the boys.

The weather here in California this past week has been phenomenal and I’ve started dreaming of what I want my summer to be like. I’m envisioning bicycle rides, new kicks, a straw fedora. And of course, some excellent caffeinated fuel to keep me going all day long: Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. Ah, Starbucks, my old friend!

Just a few items that are making me feel refreshed and putting a smile on my face lately:

    Even though the weather isn’t as nice here as in California, I wish I could enjoy it and do something fun. But for me June is all about exams and July is for internship at my university. I’ll have to find a way to brighten my summer)
