Where has the first half of 2010 gone?!?
I feel like it was just yesterday that the year started out (a nice vacay in Palm Springs), but in 6 short months, there’s been a whirlwind of activity. Wedding planning, wedding having, graduation ceremonies, vacation planning, work, school, running and LIFE.
It has felt like summer for several weeks now. Anyone who claims the love living in a place with all four seasons might not realize the totally different “summer time ” vibe that descends on the beaches in L.A. in the summer. I definitely feel the shift!
We had a mostly relaxing weekend – out drinking and dancing at the local hot spots on Friday, relaxing/recovering Saturday, then going beach and making homemade lemonade Sunday. Followed by the latest season of Dexter – I waited for the legally available episodes and I’m sure we’ll get through the season quickly!
This weekend kicks off a what I anticipate to be a whole summer of fun. It’s our second attempt at a big hiking trip. I got my boot soles reglued and I’m ready to go – did I tell you that they MELTED OFF (partially) on our hot hot desert hike attempt/failure? After that, we have a trip to the midwest, a mid-summer backpacking adventure in one of my favorite california areas, then it’s all about the big vacation abroad. Not to mention it is going to be a busy and (hopefully) exciting time at work.
Forth of July always has felt like the true start of summer ever since I graduated college and no longer marked the last day of school as summer. What about you? Are you excited for the summer ahead?
