On My Bucket List: Summer 2019


oh my goodness, it’s SUMMER! already! and i’m way too excited. mainly because, after enduring the fog and chilliness in san francisco this past fall, i’ve been feeling extra grateful to be back on the east coast just in time for the loveliest time of the year. i’m not sure it’s my favorite—that honor is reserved for the first few weeks of fall and spring—but there really isn’t any other season that’s quite as predictably excellent on nearly any given day. i love walking out of the office and still seeing sunshine, and i love the optimism of the whole season…the endless, always-within-reach possibilities for outdoor movies and trips up the hudson and al fresco dining. i love dipping into the park on my walk to work each morning, and i love making trips to the farmer’s market, and…just, everything. i’m getting carried away. i’ll stop. but below are a few things on my bucket list for the next few months. leave me a comment to let me know what’s on yours—i wanna know! xx
