back to school wish list


I signed into my school email account yesterday and immediately found a class syllabus and an order to “get the textbook before class starts because we will be diving right in.” I’m sure more of the same type emails will be coming my way any day now. It’s hard to believe as it’s currently sunny and 80 degrees out, that for me, summer is basically over. I’ll be back in school full time a week from Tuesday, and i’m very much in denial. Summer always goes by so fast. And I know this next week is going to go by even faster. These are just a few things on my (very greedy) wish list for back to school..

1 / a phone case I actually like!
2 / a backpack to replace the obnoxious bright pink one I bought in high school.
3 / notebooks way too cute for actually taking notes in.
4 / the sweater coat i’ve been coveting for years now.
5 / a water bottle that doesn’t look like it should be on my bike.


it’s laundry day.


A pair of running shorts that haven’t been on a run in over a year because I prefer these for actual running, a crazy colored tank worn simply for the shelf bra in it, and a long sleeve tee with the words “vail” written on it on top. This is what laundry day looks like for me. Good news is, in a few short weeks, I won’t have to wear my super stylish laundry day outfits out of the house because we have a washer and dryer in our new home. Hooray!


a really good weekend.

There’s no reason in particular that it was a really good weekend, it just was. Uneventful weekends always seem to be my favorite. There were many walks, lazy afternoons, and Sunday we were even up early enough to beat the crowds to brunch at the place that fries your donut right when you order it. Heaven. I would have taken a picture of it, but when you are talking about fresh-out-of-the-frier-donuts, there’s no time for taking pictures, you have to dive into it while it’s hot. Other than that, we enjoyed the last days of apartment. Earlier this summer, we fell in love with a house on the other side of town and ended up signing a lease. Our move in date in the end of this month, and we are so excited, but it’s weird how quickly our move date is coming up. On the agenda this week is packing, packing, packing. I hope you have a lovely week – Happy Monday!




We had plans to go up north this evening, but the weatherman called for all day thunderstorms today and tomorrow, so home we stayed. That means I have all the time in the world for making a big pot of vegetable soup that can simmer on the stove, getting more delicious by the hour, and for trying out this peach galette recipe. I’ve never made a crust from scratch, so we will see how it turns out. There will also be a candle burning and soothing music playing and maybe, just maybe, some time for being bored while I listen to the rain fall. Doesn’t that sound nice? I guess having to reschedule our quick getaway isn’t so bad after all. I hope your day is just as lovely. xo
