...and there goes another month!
June was an incredible one though, from finally having breathing room after finishing my first year of college, to visiting one of my dream destinations (I miss you terribly Italy), and reuniting with friends back here in the city. Even amidst myths of long, lazy summer days, life is definitely speeding by, and I'm determined to fill every day with new adventures and insights (however small) and just push myself more creatively this summer than ever before. Here's what my days have been looking like so far:
Sunday: Pride Parade in sf.
Since this was one of the first summers in the city during June, this was my first Pride experience. Amazingly, we didn't run into any naked crazies. Not until Friday in the Castro. Oh San Francisco...
From here, we walked to Filmore and stopped at j-town for a quick crepe/ sushi/ sausage lunch.
Headed to the alice summer fest in golden gate park next, where we caught a bit of boys like girls and Adam Lambert. Not bad for a free concert!
Finally, made a few brief stops on our walk home- visited the new Ambiance on Irving, and a park (we always seem to end up at) where we sat our tired butts down on a rickety jumbo swing intended for 5-year old's.
Monday: hike with S. all kinds of lovely.
Wednesday: Yerba Buena Lane's Cultural Centers with mom, then poked around anthropologie.
Thursday: watched old Coldplay concert vids with W (many kudos to her for getting amazing footage) then saw Moonrise Kingdom! One day we'll have a tree house like that. One day.
"I love you, but you don't know what you're talking about"
Friday: Discovered countless new stores around Church/Valencia/ and Mission area. Visited the ever enchanting Paxton Gate, Veracocha, Taylor stitch, and the Curiosity shoppe to name a few.
Weekend: Young the Giant concert on Saturday and Grease sing-along on Sunday. Should be fun!
Have a wonderful week,
and keep in mind the words of sweet simplicity from the incredible Gibran:
"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair"
