Alright: preparations for my departure to the northwest are proceeding according to schedule. new drivers license- got it. new playlist- finished. I have been somewhat of a recluse lately I suppose one could say, in the sense that I have only gone out one night so far.

I consider it more of a prioritization of my life though, I am not going to be here for that much of the summer and then I leave for Sweden in the fall so I find it important to allocate a large chunk of my time to hanging with my family, pets, and those closest to me. On that note, yesterday was wonderful: ran errands, hiked with august, made pizza from scratch for dinner, treated myself to new martha stewart magazine and yummy bars ;)

I leave you with a few snippets from the summer playlist! For the summer I went for a lot of upbeat, slightly superficial (think cheesy pop), and quite a few oldies. The actual playlist has over 200 songs so if you think this list is long, you ain’t seen nothing yet ;)

I am proud to annouce that I have fully abided by the most important rule of summertime:

being outside!

For the majority of the time span from breakfast to this very moment, I have been actively enjoying the outdoors. How, you might ask, have I shown my appreciation for the sun and beautiful day? Allow me to lay it out for you.

Woke up (only SLIGHTLY hungover) and enjoyed a lovely breakfast on my porch with one Jennifer Wright and one cute puppy.

Properly fueled, we set out for a hike! We piled into my car and met up with Kenzie at the Comanche trailhead. I hadn’t ever explored that particular trail, but it was interesting to say the least considering there is very little trail (that we followed anyways) that is not entirely composed of rock faces. August was totally suave about it though, took it like a champ. Lil mountaineer!

What could possibly be more fitting after all that beauty than a delicious lunch at Annapurna with the girls?! While we waited for our food we took tests to determine our doshas and a man that worked there came up and just based on what we looked like guessed what the test confirmed–I’m Vata with a little bit of Pitta. Turns out I enjoy eating all the food that is keeps me unbalanced, but it tastes so GOOD!

Doshas are very interesting, all of Annapurna’s vegan food is prepared according to your dosha’s necessities. As mostly a Vata person turns out I should avoid all raw vegetables! WHAT?! I guess I will just stay unbalanced. To find out what your dosha is and information about it click here and here. ;)

Now I am currently in the process of acquiring new music–official summer playlist is obviously needed.

Really digging 4shared.com lately, it’s legal so I dont feel bad about using it! Loading up on some she&him, coconut records, katy perry, cash cash, etc.

I’m gonna work on this for awhile, then maybe take the new jams for a spin at the gym? hm..
