Now that June has come, things are really beginning to feel truly like summer.  It felt like summer when school let out back in May, but something about entering June just makes the summer seem so much bolder, at least to me. 

Usually summer is my least favorite season because of the scorching hot Georgia weather that is normally so humid you might as well go swimming through the air.  But this year things are different. 

I'm loving the bright warm sun and the long evenings.....

And the wildflowers/weeds-with-blossoms that are everywhere...  They're just so happy. :)

The other day I went outside and took many random pictures of all the pretty things. (Hence the pictures above.)  It was some extremely enjoyable fun and I highly recommend it. :D

I think part of my excitement for this summer comes from the fact that it's my last summer as a high school student. *yikes.*  Therefore, I'm kind of determined to make it a special one.

I've contrived a list of goals to accomplish this summer in order to hopefully make it more memorable. Not any kind of serious goals like conquering the world or winning the Nobel Prize...

Much more practical goals.  Like completing my novel's very-rough-draft, dancing in the rain, learning to speak at least 3 sentences in Hindi, getting a job, spending lots of time with my amazing family and friends, and painting so many pictures my hand will feel like it's going to fall off....

I'm just so excited to see what this summer will entail :)

What about you? Do you have any amazing summer goals? Or any other random comments regarding summerishness? I would love to hear from you!    



  1. Love the new blog format, the photos, and the goals!!

    Obviously I'm working on my own manuscript and trying to get it query-ready for late summer/early fall; and am teaching an art camp, meeting with other writers, among other things.

    What brought about the desire to learn a little Hindi? I'd like to join you if you've found someone to give lessons. :)

  2. Thank you!! :)

    And those are some amazing plans!! :D query-ready manuscripts = amazing.

    I'm thinking about going on a mission trip to India next summer for my senior trip, and I thought it would be nice to know some Hindi.. I haven't found anyone to give lessons, but I'll definitely let you know if I do. ;) There is a mission website that has basic phrases on it, so I'll probably use it :D

    1. Fabulous! Is your church planning a trip, or are you doing like Hannah and planning to team up with another organization?

    2. I'm doing like Hannah :) I've been looking around to try to find an organization to go with (as not many go to India), but I think I've found one :D
