anticipating the unwind

As summer gently edges spring out the door, the call to "unwind" whispers through the balmy breezes that caress my open window. Lessons are still piled high on my desk, but just beyond them is Pineapple Frozen Greek Yogurt dripping on a silver spoon, wildflowers blooming in the yellow fields, and the crisp exquisiteness of Kinfolk magazine (vielen dank, Carlotta!)

 Now if only my pencil would work faster; if only my eyes would stay on the page and wander not to the window; if only the call to unwind would wait until unwinding is truly a possibility. The summer ahead holds so many endless possibilities and loveliness, if only I could let it in. 

Nevertheless, this coming week and month promise to be resplendent in themselves. Here's my little list of happiness. 


Weddings >> next week a sweet friend of mine is tying the knot, and I can't wait.  
Photography >> I was asked to second-shoot a wedding later this month. Eeep!
Bare feet >> mild temperatures mean no more shoes. 
Airborne >> we got a trampoline, and I'm addicted to flight-by-bounce.
Garden-grown >> our seeds are sown, our soil is tilled. Fresh lettuce is on the way!
To read >> my bookshelf is stocked and ready for love. 
To run >> my last cross country season is nearly here. Time to train. 

Happy Tuesday, friends. Here's to 'anticipating the unwind!' What's on your list?
