Snapshots Lately

With July more than halfway over, I'm starting to realize this summer is going to come to an end before I know it. One of my best friends has always joked (much to my annoyance) that July 4th is the start of the end of summer. I always hated when he said that, but I must admit that sometimes it seems to be true. The moment July 5th strikes Target sets up their Back to School section and starts to display fall clothing (and Target is what I use to set my standards, if you haven't yet noticed). But this year, instead of being stressed out by the impending end of summer, I'm simply more aware that I need to make the most of this season. I'm going to eat ice cream, sit on patios with friends, dine al fresco, and go for long runs along the river. It's going to be lovely.

My view of Minneapolis on the way to work. // Ice cream. A summer staple. // Morning stripes + caffeine. // The most delicious black bean quinoa burger + kale salad from here. // Sunday brunch at Sun Street Breads. // Found a copy of the Young House Love book. Discovered the blog a few months ago and it's now
one of my favorites.

This week I'm looking forward to a long weekend in Chicago. For those of you who have been reading for a while, you know how much I love the city. I will be leaving bright and early Thursday morning and I can't wait to spend time with a good friend plus Alaina and Danielle of The Everygirl. I've been working with them for over 10 months but haven't seen them since September. It should be lots of fun. But until then, I have a large to do list to tackle, so I'm off to work on that.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. It's crazy how fast summer seems to go after the 4th of July! But I love your decision to savor every bit of it :) I'm with you. Have the best weekend in Chicago! It really is an amazing city.
