Hey There, Sunshine

There’s something about the transition from spring into summer than just feels full of endless possibilities. The sun is out, the skies are blue, and it feels like no matter where you go, you can see for miles.

I want to pack a bag and hit the road, explore new places and see new sights. I want to take advantage of every gorgeous day, make sure every second of sunshine is filled to the brim with joy and laughter. Basically, I want to make up for every winter day spent binge-watching Netflix (and believe me, that’s a lot of episodes of Gilmore Girls and West Wing worth of time).

So here’s to summer and all the amazingness that comes with it. I wish for all of us a season of trying new things, making new memories, and definitely having a good story or two.  I may be squinting from the sun, but I am definitely seeing one awesome summertime in our future!

Another Year Closer…

Jess8

… to being a real grownup!

That’s right folks, today is my birthday! It’s been a bit of a crazy year, but I feel like I’ve really grown. I’m more mature, and more responsible. Almost an adult, you might say.

So grown up, in fact, that I felt like it was finally time…

…to buy my first pair of white jeans.

I know, it’s a huge step. I’ll have to bleach, spot treat, and avoid all pens and markers (I twirl my pens when I’m thinking… poorly #cantstopwontstop). And I’ll have to be sure to take them out frequently (first stop: birthday drinks and sushi). But I feel like, after 29 years, I’m finally ready for this major responsibility.

So, happy birthday to me! And happy birthday to my new pants.

Fun surprise: my new garden came with a whole bed of my favorite flower, Lily of the Valley, which also happens to be the May birth month flower!
