5 Fantastic Things // July

spirit family reunion at the paste ruins / a thousand threads

I want to remember…

1 // Umm… can we talk about that picture up there? Two words: Folk Fest. Hands down the best concert-going experience I have ever had. (More on that later, I promise.)
2 // Spending time with family, and finally having the chance to share our wedding video, at the Boilermaker.
3 // Celebrating six years with my guy, and two years with this blog! (I’m terrible, I know… I passed it right over. We’ll have to find a nice little way to celebrate.)
4 // Successfully growing real, red, EDIBLE tomatoes for the very first time. Our little plant outside is so damn healthy it almost makes me want to cry.
5 // Deciding to rise up and take a big risk.

I’m looking forward to…

1 // Taking it easy. Right now we don’t have many plans for August. We’re headed to see Black Prairie perform with the lovely folks above on the 18th, but that’s it… and I can’t wait. I plan to savor every single day off and spend as many as possible next to the pool. It’s been such a busy summer so far.
2 // Brainstorming some big ideas.
3 // Studying for the GRE. I think it’s time to take the leap.
4 // Okay so still, yes to #1… but maybe also squeezing in a little bit of camping? I really am craving a little sleep under the stars.
5 // ….. maaaaybe getting my first tattoo?

    I’ve been telling myself to take the leap and study for the GRE for months and months and months. Really need to dust off my prep book.

      Me too!! I’m telling myself it’s like a band-aid… just rip it off. Once I’ve started I’ll have to keep it up, right?

    I can’t believe August is here already! What tattoo are you thinking about getting? I’m so intrigued!

      Me either!! Where is the summer going?! I’m thinking about a little tree on the inside of my forearm… I’ve been thinking about the tree for a long time, but just recently decided on a place… now I just have to get up the courage to do it haha. 🙂

    Oh, a little tree would be so perfect!
