I cannot believe it’s already June. Maybe it’s the weather — we hopped from winter, to spring, to winter, to summer, to winter, to spring, and then BOOM! June and consistent summer weather! The weather around here has gotten intensely hot and crazy humid — apparently it’s about 10 degrees hotter than it was at this time last year. But the fireflies are out and everything is in bloom, so I’m happy. It feels like I’ve been permanently on the go since the beginning of May, but I have been exploring a few things …
Eating: It’s summertime and that means my favorite marinated cucumbers are back! My grandma and I made a batch last weekend and I’ve been snacking on them nonstop. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
Hearing: I finally got around listening to Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. It’s pretty funky.
Wanting: The perfect petite t-shirt dress. Right now I’ve got my eye on this one. Any recommendations?
Drinking: GT’s Enlightened Synergy Grape Chia! My dad surprised me with a bottle to try last week and I am sold. I know some people have an issue with the chia texture, but I think it’s fun! Plus, since I’ve given up my daily Coke Zero (number 25 on my list of 52 Things in 52 Weeks) and now drink almost only water, I’m looking for a fun new drink to try every now and then.
Reading: A friend of mine recently shared this article. I particularly like the “bookend your day” advice.
Wearing: This t-shirt from Banana Republic. I lucked into a really good sale that made it reasonably affordable and I’m so glad I snagged it. It’s perfectly baggy, without looking sloppy, and can be dressed up (a little) or down.
So tell me — what have you been digging lately?
