summer lists on a thursday morning.

Posted: June 26, 2014 by Rachel

the last time i compiled a list like this it was still spring. we weren’t yet dashing indoors to avoid the heat. we weren’t rushing out the door at 7:30am to go to the park before the temperatures ramped up. we weren’t thinking about how to entertain ourselves indoors all day. i wasn’t showering twice a day; once in the morning and once before bed, to wash the days stickiness off of my skin.

spring is gone, and summer is in full swing. this morning i’m thinking about the here and now.

things that inspire me.
sunsets
the written word
honesty

my proudest accomplishments.
graduating college
moving to another country for love
my son

things that disappoint me.
selfishness
writers block
missed opportunities to nap
broken sleep
forgotten birthdays
mistrust
people who lack ambition

movies i will never tire of.
the holiday
wedding crashers
crazy stupid love

how i love spending my days.
reading
spending time with my family
paper crafting
drinking coffee
writing in my journal

things currently on my nightstand.
my journal
a mason jar filled with iced coffee
two books
bobby pins
phone charger

things i wish i could forget.
heartbreak
friends disappointing you
missed opportunities
