June has been a month of many small but fun things. Farmers market’s, beach days, birthday parties and visits to SF. With long summer days and early mornings I can fit so much more in. Here’s little bit of what I’ve been up to if you don’t follow along on my instagram.
I went to an alumni picnic at my school and found this blast from the past picture of some of my girlfriends from my middle school. We look so young!
A co-worker invited me to her unicorn birthday party and at the end of it we all walked to 7/11 for slurpees. What a great way to celebrate a really hot day!
I’ve had so many to-do things for my apartment that have fallen off my to-do list (coffee-table, console table, hanging artwork, etc!) that my dad came over a few days after I was out of school and we put up these two great pieces above my desk: a picture shelf and my desk organizer. I’m ashamed to say they have been leaning against my wall since purchasing them this past September.
Two glorious beach days with friends have already happened and I can’t wait for more. Santa Cruz is gorgeous in the summer!
I discovered these great snacks at TJ’s. Yum.
I like to walk to Pier 39 in San Francisco. I went up a few days ago and had the best SF weather I’ve ever had, warm and windy but not too hot.
What all have you been up to lately? Any adventures?
Our good family friends the Goldstein’s (Hi Jon and Mim!) invited our whole family up to Tiburon for their son’s bar mitzvah. We started out with some tasty hot drinks and snacks before heading over to the temple.
Josh did an amazing job reading, and the party later on was a ton of fun. We had a few hours free in the middle between the earlier ceremony at the temple and the dinner party. I reached out to my friend Emmie to see if she was free to explore Tiburon with me and my family during the middle free hours on that Saturday.
We ended up grabbing a fantastic lunch (get the stone fruit & burrata, or the fish tacos!) at Tiburon Tavern and walked through downtown Tiburon, where we had unbelievably great weather.
It was sunny but breezy with gorgeous blue skies. From there we snacked on ice cream from Honeymoon in Mill Valley. We ended up walking around Mill Valley before heading over to the evening party, which was a blast.
Have you ever been to a bar mitzvah? I had never see people being raised on the chairs before, it was so cool!
The sun was warm, strong and made playing in the water that much sweeter. We snorkled most days and enjoyed hours of reading by the pool, in the hammock or on a beach towel. We checked out local places, and picked up some Tortuga Rum, Rum Cakes and other fun treats to bring back home. We munched on tasty coconut popsicles, watermelon soda and banana chips from the local grocery store in the afternoons by the beach.
The smell of fresh ocean everyday, full bellies every night and copious amounts of sleep made for a week beyond unreal. It was a week I could do every year if I could. I came back feeling refreshed, and ready to tackle the rest of the school-year.
It makes me think every break I have should feel that good. I know I struggle with unplugging, but when you do, it’s better than you can every imagine.
