Quit your job.
Buy a ticket.
Get a tan.
Fall in love.
Never return.

Summer Love

Today (and mostly every other day) I would rather be at the beach.
But sadly, because I work in the corporate world, most of my summer days are spent in the office.
I'm impatiently awaiting my next trip, I've been thinking of little things that I love right now.

Here are a few of my current summer loves:

--Driving with the music up and the windows down; day or night.
--The first hint of salt in the air as you head for the ocean
--The scent of a burning candle
--Watching the twinkle of fire flies at night
--Iced coffee and homemade popsicles
[I actually hate tanlines, but love that they depict hours of enjoying the summer sun]
--Trips and adventures, by plane or car
--Sand beneath your feet and a cool ocean breeze

What do you love most about summer?

Day One

Techincally its Day Two, but Day One is a rest day.
Thank God it was because it was also a holiday. A relax and work on my tan by the pool day.

I've been running fairly regularly lately, but never had a goal in mind.
I was just simply hitting the trail to get outside, clear my mind,
enjoy the nice weather and burn some calories.
Today things are changing.

I found a pretty easy, straight forward 5k training program.
Its not much, but its a start.
Hopefully I'll eventually work my way up to a half marathon!

Have any of you trained before? Are you die hard runners?

Happy 5th

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend and are eager to get back to the grind.
I didnt take very many pictures this weekend as I spent most of my time relaxing poolside,
but here are a few I snapped with my phone.

Happy Monday! What's on your agenda for the week?

4th Favorites


For the first time in a long time I dont have a weekend jam packed with plans for the 4th.
This year it won't be spent relaxing on the lake,
or at my favorite beach club in LA with my favorite extended family.
This years three day weekend is going to consist of go-with-the-flow-do-whatever-I-want type plans.

Here are four of my favorite finds this week.
  • Perfect for a weekend picnic. Although I would dye some rice krispies red and blue
  • I think I'll put some of my mini loaf pans to use this weekend
  • This is at the tippy top of my DIY To Do list
  • The perfect 4th of July in a Jar recipe
What do you have planned for this holiday weekend?


I may have stolen borrowed this from my best friend. But it fit perfectly for this Friday morning.
