Hello summer! It is like we woke up in the tropics the last couple of days here in Austin. I guess it is really here. These goals lists are always fun to read over at Bleubird (hat tip to you, James). I'm following her lead this month and filling out one of my own.

eating / raspberry pie a la mode (thanks sugar mamma and postable)

drinking / brooklyn lager and shiner ruby redbird

practicing / my patience. must find more.

mastering / the art of yoga. will help with said patience, above. I want to be able to do this move. p.s. i'm loving yoga_girl on instagram, such a great force of light and love.

learning / spanish. again (still?). it will come back, i'm sure.

trying / to institute a "digital sundown", putting away all electronics by 10 pm. it has happened once this month so far...

playing / like a kid until i'm so tired I can't stay awake at night. also in a sand volleyball in a league on monday nights.

finishing / all the things on my to-do list for the summer. including replanting my herb garden (am i too late?) and fixing up my festival bike. yes, that is just a crappy bike that I keep tied to a fence with the sole purpose of getting me to sxsw and acl.

reading / #girlboss. i'm still up in the air about it. what did you think?

remembering / to live within my means and be thankful for what I have.

wearing / colorful flowy dresses from free people, white birkenstocks and this nars multiples lip & cheek tint in Laos.

cooking / chicken souvlaki with homemade tzatziki. I cannot get enough greek food after our recent trip.

working / on things that matter. less fluff more focus.

traveling / to berlin and prague in september.

wanting / more vacation time. and a nespresso coffee maker.

What are your goals for this summer?
