{Painting nails with friends}

It’s almost impossible to believe that August has arrived. I remember years before this one, my summer holiday felt so short, however I feel like I’ve done so much during these three months that I’m completely accepting (almost embracing) the ending. I worked at a chem lab, a band camp, visited Morocco, saw old friends, met new people… Today has been very laid back so far. I’ve never been a fan of early Monday mornings so I enjoyed today by rolling out at 9:30am and..er….not going to work. Woops. Maybe I’ll stop by later today (or tomorrow hehe).

{First signs of florals near my home}

It’s so nice that it’s finally Friday. This week felt as if it has dragged on and on for a lot more than just 5  days. In just a few hours I’ll be at home, my feet on the table, playing Mass Effect 3 and not a care in the world. Hopefully the week I have off feels just as long as this one has. I’ve got plans for a few lunches and brunches here and there, a bit of shopping on Michigan Ave, a stroll on the beach, and a few concerts to attend. This holiday is just what I need to prepare for the stress of April-May. I thought I’ve captured a few things that bring me joy and share them with you. Happy weekend!
