Sunday, June 3rd: Having the oven on for 2 hours to roast two giant beets, that I definitely should have cut into smaller pieces.
Monday, June 4th: Carrying two Spicy Black Bean Burrito Bowls outside to eat dinner in the back yard and feeling extreme happiness about what was just a regular old Monday, but made better because it was summer and we could eat outside and still have time to walk our pup afterward before the sun went down.
Tuesday, June 5th: Going for my usual Tuesday morning run but instead of pushing myself, I took it at a snail’s pace and then felt really good by the end.
Wednesday, June 6th: Wanting an exact repeat of Monday, then deciding to let Wednesday night unfold on its own terms and hey, we still got to eat dinner outside!
Thursday, June 7th: Laughing really hard with Joey as he told me a story about the chaos that had unfolded at his basketball game the night before.
Friday, June 8th: Feeling my pup’s head resting on my leg when I woke up and realizing his BFF Joey had already gotten up and he hadn’t followed him out of our room for once!

Sunday, June 10th: Sitting in my car in the Nordstrom Rack parking lot and giving myself a mental pep talk to head to the mall to dress shop when I felt like I had zero energy.
Monday, June 11th: Feeling that “oh shit, I’m leaving for vacation on Thursday!” angst that had my brain creating a to-do list that I couldn’t actually tackle at work.

Thursday, June 21st: Back to eating dinner al fresco after a few days off and feeling like it was the best way to celebrate the first official day of summer.
Friday, June 22nd: Being in a bad mood for a reason I couldn’t place, then miraculously feeling better once the sun was out.
Saturday, June 23rd: Petting our dog with a shaky hand while we waited to see a new vet for the first time and wondering how Andi would react.
Sunday, June 24th: Thinking pizza sounded good for dinner and just going with it instead of trying to talk myself into cooking something at home.
Monday, June 25th: Making it out of the house, everything in hand, on time for work.
Tuesday, June 26th: Driving home with a book club high because the discussion was lively, the book was wonderful, the friends were a plenty and probably mostly because I ordered a glass of wine with dinner.

It’s July tomorrow and I can’t even believe it but I’m also incredibly excited because it’s many-a-family-member-birth-month and shockingly, it still seems less busy than June and I’m totally fine with that!
