absolutely and utterly ecstatic

-true story: I never feel more infinite than when I am hearing the instrumental break in this song with wind in my hair-
I know I've done probably 3 or more blog posts about this new warm weather we're having, but guess what? Here's one more.

Now, I love sweater/cuddle-up/hot chocolate/Christmasy weather just as much as the next person, but there are significantly more reasons that I love warm.

I don't love that sweltering, deathlike 100+ streak that Texas put me through June to July last summer. That I can definitely do without.

But this.  Give me anywhere from 60-80 and it's a pretty safe bet that I'll try to be outside far more than inside.

And here's why I am beyond excited to spend my first ever summer in Utah:

That unbearably hot problem I was talking to in reference to Texas? No longer a problem.
Waterparks-I live a block away from Seven Peaks. Nuff said.
My compulsive need to plan things a million years in advance is very much less prominent.
Outside naps.
Finding new places to bike and hike.
Two words: Otter. Pops.
Drive in movies?
Friendship bracelets
Getting some color maybe for once?
More motivation to exercise
I put my brand-name-loving, needing-to-look-flawless, makeup-wearing self to rest for a little bit and turn into the full on all-natural hippie self that I truly am on the inside.

A little bit like this:

But for right now, I'm sick as a dog and going to bed.
Confession: I'll probably still go hiking tomorrow.
And then leave myself bedridden for the rest of the weekend.
You win some, you lose some.

Goodnight!

All my love,B.

oh man this post makes me so excited for SUMMER! Welcome to your first summer in Utah! It is awesome! All the pools are always packed and it's just so fun to be outside all the time, and definitely none of that muggy yucky stuff that you get around Texas. Much better around here!

Just stumbled about your blog today and I'm so glad I did. It's adorable!
