– to go camping for the first time ever.
– a really cute tent.
– to go hiking and see really beautiful gorges and waterfalls in and around Ithaca, NY.
– a really fun roadtrip with my favorite person in the world and my dog, with excellent music. through beautiful stretches of highway in Massachusetts and New York.
– to drink a mint julep sno-cone. (seriously amazing. bourbon. in a sno-cone.)
– two nights around a camp-fire with great friends + great conversation
– a bocce set.
– a really excellent first bocce game in which my team (team bourbon sno-cones) ultimately lost to Darcy’s team (gewurtztraminer). we did, however, win several rounds and I’m also pretty sure we landed more quality jokes involving the positions of our balls, which I feel should count for something.
– a five day weekend. which then results in this week only being four work days. followed by a holiday 3-day weekend. and another four day workweek.
– much love from many wonderful people all over the internet. my facebook page and email box are truly humbling places of beautiful words and warm wishes right now.
I am glowing.
yay summer. yay birthdays. yay lovely, lovely people in my life. I am so very lucky.
