Sunday Sessions

An Early Summer Sunday

Summer 2017

I’m grateful for the sunshine this week. I’ve spent hours outside, enjoying the tiny trickles of sweat running down my neck (graciously so, after what felt like an unbearable winter). Last weekend, Jack and I set up shop in the grassy area across the street and, while be barked at anyone who happened to be ambling by, I read pages and pages uninterrupted.

I’m working on setting a few goals for the summer. More walks. My first homemade pies crust. I’d like to be able to run 3 miles without stopping. I have an idea for a podcast segment; I want to record and then pitch it to one of my favorite shows.

Luckily, the summer is just getting started.
