5 things I’m loving right now

In pictures!

What an amazing, long weekend! I took an extra day and loved every second of having four days off. There was so, so, so much to love and just not enough time to photograph it all! Plus, I was too busy trying to be in the moment…

I spent an inordinate amount of time in bed on Friday afternoon before watching fireworks up the street with my dear friends and neighbors, who have a great view from their place. It’s possible I love nothing more than that sweet spot between awake and totally asleep where you’re just dozing – completely peaceful, no cares or worries – just bliss. My mom calls my Friday afternoon behavior “wallowing”.

It’s when you give a loved one a present for no particular reason other than you’re thinking of them or see something you know they’ll like. My mom is the sussie master. This taffy has been a presence in my life since I was a little girl – my youth wrapped up in cellophane and placed in a box.

5. IMG_20140706_163956Wearing shorts for the first time in 11 years. The last time I wore them was while visiting my little brother when he graduated from Basic training. It was one of the Carolinas (?) in August and clothing felt like heavy wet blankets, so shorts were a must. It’s only been recently (and thanks to The Bar Method, AdvoCare, and CrossFit) that shorts feel like an okay option.
