It’s JUNE! In case you don’t know, June is my favorite favorite month of the year. The days are longer (and keep getting longer all month), the sun (when it’s out, anyway) is high in the sky, the flowers are planted, the deck is our outdoor living room, and this month includes Dale’s birthday AND our wedding anniversary. So much to love about June!
And here’s what’s happening right now in early June:
What are you listening to?
The Spotify playlist that Hannah made for her graduation party. She put together a really fun list, full of songs that are well loved and bring back happy memories of her childhood and camping, Dale’s band, and so much more.
What are you wearing?
My work uniform is jeans and a blouse, with sneakers. I did finally get a pedicure last week so I can wear flip flops but my new Keen sneakers are so comfortable that I keep wearing them instead.
What have you bought?
I feel like I have bought all.the.plants but I haven’t because there are still lots of empty spaces to be filled. I also finally (!!) found a garden Buddha that I love and that was in my budget, too. I’ve been looking for ages and, happy as I am to have him, now that I do there goes my excuse for stalking Homegoods and various garden stores.
What are you reading?
Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin. It’s very very good. I thought it would be light and fun and it is but it’s also a very strong feminist novel and there’s a lot more depth to it than I expected.
Who are you stalking…er, admiring from afar?
My Instagram feed is full of summery homes and gardens, delicious food and decorating ideas . . . I stalk those every day. Right now I’m a little bit obsessed with the renovations going on over at Talk of the House since they bought a new lake house.
Where are you going?
Maine! At the end of the month we are going back to the cottage we rented last year to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. You may recall that it’s the same place we rented for our honeymoon and we have decided that we love it so much we need to go again this year. It will be a week of staring at the ocean and eating lots and lots of lobster. Woot!
What’s going on with YOU now that it’s June?
