The Start of Something New

Excuse me while I jam to the HSM soundtrack as I write this. Happy Tuesday everyone! The past two weeks have been pure & wonderful madness and I can't wait to share everything with you.

Happy Weekend!

Oh how the weeks fly by when you're having fun. This week has been one of transitions as I said goodbye to the beach, a soft ending to a wonderfully sandy summer, and headed back to northern Virginia to spend some time with family. As much as I do love spending my summers seaside at camp, teaching yoga, and living with my grandparents, I miss my lovely bedroom here with its green walls, our sweet if scheming cat Alice, and, of course, my family! It's always special when we get together, even if it is only ever for a week here and there.

Weekly Roundup

Happy weekend! This past week was a rather emotional one for me because it was my last week working at summer camp before I get ready to head back to school. We went hiking, we said goodbye to another counselor who is heading off to college for the first time!, and wrapped up a whole lot of love & fun into one week. My last day we devoured donuts, cupcakes, and ice cream and I think I'm still riding my sugar high! I will miss these kids terribly and can't wait to see what this year brings for them. (I also got the chance to make these beautiful earrings with the sweetest soul I know -- check them out on my Instagram!)

A Search for Authenticity

I am overwhelmed.

//Like so many of the headlines popping up on my timelines about how social media is detrimental to our stamina and emotional well-being (not to mention our mental, emotional, & physical health), I've felt drained recently. There was no particular thing that set this off, there wasn't a final tweet that was the proverbial straw on my phone's back, but something finally reminded me that it was time to check in with myself.

A Beach Carnival

There is an annual carnival here on the beach that benefits the county's Youth & Children Partnership and this year I was actually in town to go!
