And with that, I am finally home. I've been back in the U.S. for nearly two months, but I only feel as though I'm finally settled now that our plane from Los Angeles has landed. In the weeks I've been stateside, it's been a constant go-go-go. Denver to Fort Collins to Sidney to Omaha back to Sidney back to Omaha to Los Angeles with work, door-knocking for extra cash, and playing catch-up with friends in between.
And suddenly it's August. August. I start school in a month and a day. I blow out 21 candles in a little over three weeks. So even though I'm not sure how or when this summer totally flew by, I'm happy. It's been a short one, but the season has been filled with all of my favorite things: evening grill-outs on the patio, afternoon iced coffee dates, long hours spent at the pool followed by sushi.
I wrote my two L.A. posts the day after I returned, and then had some real trouble finding inspiration. Every time I sat down to type up a post, I couldn't do it. It wasn't that I didn't have anything to write about--I was going out to new restaurants, making lots of plans with friends, showing off the city to an out-of-town day guest. Then it all clicked: I was just too busy enjoying the summer sun and the people I was with to stop and take photos. I was too exhausted to sit down in the evening and recount what happened that day to my laptop.
I adore blogging and I love sharing my most-loved bits of life with you. But it's also nice to take a moment and just enjoy life for the sake of simply enjoying life. What are you loving about life these days?
(Because in addition to enjoying, well, everything, I am very much so enjoying my new favorite X-Ray specs that are never EVER leaving my face).
