Let’s get to it!

One of the biggest highlights of July was our family trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We were there for Cooper’s travel baseball tournament. While we were there we saw THREE double rainbows. For that, I am grateful.

Watching:

Happy Film– this was EYE CANDY. I loved it so much I want to watch it again. 

Expedition Happiness because I am so fascinated by van life! I loved how their overhauled their school bus.

I rewatched Minimalism to remind myself of how much I appreciate the simple things in life. Less stuff/more LIVING. 

We finished Stranger Things season 3. This season wasn’t my favorite but I really did enjoy the mall life! I have found that watching Stranger Things makes my dreams all weird. My dream life takes place in the past. All of these weird memories pop up in my sub-conscious. 

I went to the movies with my friend Jessica. We saw Wild Rose. It was really good. I thought about it for a week after. Good sign, huh??!

Reading:

Here’s what I checked out of the library this month:

Stop Caretaking the Borderline and Narcissist

The Art of Noticing

The Dude and the Zen Master

What A Time to Be Alone

Save Me the Plums   (downloaded on my kindle)

Edible Schoolyard- A Universal Idea

The Great Book of Optical Illusions

Thinking About:

Our trip to ITALY!  I spent a lot of time freaking out about what to pack on our international adventure. Luckily I used the time before our Colorado trip to figure out what all of my Carry-On Essentials were.  As much as I love the pace of Summer, I’m curious to see what our life is going to be like having a 5TH grader!!!! School is just around the corner and as much as I’m anxious to get back into a routine, I am so happy to spend my days with Cooper. This summer has been one of my favorites. 

Listening To:

I haven’t really listened to anything new this month. Since I’m not shuttling Cooper to/from school, I don’t have music playing all the time. I did start listening to the Lumineers again. I loved listening to them a few years ago and it transports me back in time. 

Dream Life:

My dreams are all over the place right now. I did have one dream about my Mom. She was waving to me at the grocery store (where I find her in most of my dreams) and she yelled “DO YOU WANT A KISS???!!”  And I remember being in my dream thinking….Wow! She can still embarass me in the afterlife. How funny! Like I said, most of my dreams take place back in time…my childhood and college. One day I will figure out what it all means.
