The good first:
HydrangeasThese little beauties are right outside of our old apartment. I've been seriously considering cutting some of them off to plant at my new house :). Gerber daisies will always be my first love but these are a pretty close runner up.
A Beautiful CampusI know there are A LOT of times I take the place we live for granted. Not only is it a beautiful part of the country but the campus we are privileged to work on is incredible too. On the way to BCM from our house there are a couple views (between the trees) of the incredible Blue Ridge Mountains that surround us. Each time I see them I'm reminded that I sure do love these mountains!
Bumper StickerOne of my favorite things about summer is being able to roll the windows down, crank up your music, and sing at the top of your lungs. I may have done this very thing on my way back from lunch today!
A shady spot to readAnother thing I love about summer is that I have more time to read. With all the moving/getting our house in order I haven't had much time for it yet. Later this month though we're headed to the beach with some friends and I look forward to reading many a fiction book underneath that big old beach umbrella!
And now the bad:
Crappy Flip FlopsI was so excited to wear these shoes this morning because they match the dress I'm wearing today (which I just so happened to get for a sweet deal yesterday) perfectly. The straps however have been falling off my feet all day and now I have blisters on the soles of my feet. I'm beginning to think fashion might not always be worth it :).
And last but not least....
Parking TicketsIt didn't belong to me but I still hate when I see them. I just know this poor person is going to come back from a fun day exploring campus or trip to the bookstore and have their day ruined by this orange blob...ugh! I kind of wanted to take it off their car to spare them the pain but then I thought that would probably make things worse in the long haul!
Well that's it for today. Hope you're finding some inspiration wherever you are on this beautiful summer day!
