Friday Favorites

We have had a serious heat wave this week - I love summer, but we jumped immediately into 90 degree temperatures, and it's been an adjustment! I did get the chance to enjoy breakfast out on the patio on Wednesday morning with a book, and it was a really nice way to start the day. I'm hoping for some more outside time this weekend, too - but with a ton of sunscreen, a big patio umbrella, and a fan directly blowing on me.

Happy Friday! I'm writing this post from my patio, coffee in hand - my favorite place to be. We have had a few days of gorgeous weather, where it's really felt like summer, and I am so excited to have many more days of this ahead. This weekend should be a low-key one spent at home - I've been (relatively!) busy lately, at least in terms of what busy means for me, and I'm looking forward to having some time to relax.

Gratitude List, June 2024

I find it much easier to be grateful when the sun is out versus when it's gloomy and rainy, which means this month's list came pretty easily to me! I also have been pretty busy lately, both in work and in life, and it's made me feel really grateful for the little moments amongst the general chaos. So here are some things that I've felt grateful for lately.

What a week! We have a big deadline coming up at work, so I'm a little bit running on fumes this week, and going to keep this short and sweet. We've had some beautiful weather days, though, so I made sure to get outside for at least a little bit every day for some patio reading. I can honestly feel the stress melting away when I'm out there! Anyway, on to this week's favorites.

Recent Reads, May 2024

I had another great reading month in May. I've really been in a groove with audiobooks lately - I love having one book that I'm reading and one that I'm listening to at the same time. It also means I've been reading a lot more without even realizing it! There were so many standouts last month - here's everything that I read in May.

Short work weeks never fail to feel extra long - I'm very happy that today is Friday. I went out on a weeknight this week to see Noah Kahan's concert, and I was dragging on Thursday, but it was totally worth it! He was incredible live, and it was a really fun night (though chilly!). It was a really fun way to kick off summer - but I'm also excited to catch up on sleep this weekend.

Summer Reading List 2024

I've already read so many books this year that would be perfect for summer reading lists. These are the kind of books that you start reading and don't want to put down; the kind of books that are perfect for reading by the beach, or the pool, or out on a patio somewhere. All of these are recent or upcoming releases that are the epitome of summer reading to me!
