Having free time this summer has been fabulous. I’m doing a lot of lounging and just taking time for myself. Here are some of the things I’m enjoying:
TJ’s coconut water popsicle’s – they’re sweet and tropical and make me feel like I’m hydrating (even though there’s prob not enough water in them to do a thing!)
My new gym! This is the first time I’ve ever joined a gym! I’ve always just gone to my school’s gym (Davidson, Northeastern, and now Duke), so it’s fun to be in a nicer gym with other working people. It’s too hot to do much outside and I like being able to watch cable since I’m missing it this summer.
Southern summer & sounds – when we moved from Boston last summer, I went straight to work and didn’t get to experience a southern summer. Oh, how I’ve missed the cicadas (maybe they have cicadas in the north, but I never heard them living in the city)! Matt and I aren’t getting to enjoy many dinners together because of his work schedule, but we are taking lots of late evening walks! Speaking of southern summer, it’s pretty sweet living in a sublet because I can put on the AC and not stress about the bill!
Gel polish! I got my first gel manicure and love it! I hate how regular nail polish feels and I’ve never been one to spend money on polish when they just chip in a few days. I also get tired of the colors really quickly, so I love that I can get the gel french tips and have them last!
