Well it’s officially August, which means DC pretty much becomes a ghost town, it’s really hot and there are a lot of ice cream socials. Everything slows down during August recess, partially because it’s so darn hot, partially because so many people take advantage of recess and get out of the city. Whatever the reason, I’ll take it, the restaurants are emptier and the traffic is significantly lighter so I’m not complaining.
July was a little lazier than the earlier summer months, I spent most of it finishing unpacking and working on project apartment (it’s really coming along, can’t wait to share a little bit of it soon!) I spent a weekend in Boston at my sister’s graduation party, I can’t believe she starts her first post grad job as a nurse tomorrow!! I also spent a week hanging out in Baltimore with family friends. But the best part of July was hands down when I GOT A JOB!
It’s been quite the process since moving back to DC but I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and while I wish the process had been a little bit quicker (I started applying for jobs back in March!) I am so beyond thrilled to have landed where I did. I started last week and I already feel more settled and am really excited about the company and the position!
I finished out the month with a quick trip to Nantucket with my family to visit our best family friends, it was such a fun weekend. I always leave the island with such a full heart, I am so blessed to be able to spend time with the people who matter the most to me in such a beautiful place. While Nantucket is one of my favorite places in the world, I just don’t think a trip to the island would be the same without the love that comes with being there with family
It was a great month, I feel like I finally have my blogging groove back and I’m headed to Charleston next week for The Blog Societies Conference which I have a feeling is going to kick me into high gear. I’m so excited to spend a few days in The Holy City with all my blogging pals!
1 // exercise: I feel like I laid a pretty good groundwork in July, I’m using Class Pass which I love (would anyone be interested in a post on this?) but I need to get my butt into shape, Marine Corps Marathon is in 3 months and I am no way near ready
2 // work: I am really excited to be working again and I plan to throw myself into it big time over the next few months.
3 // wake up: I think I may have taken advantage of the ability to sleep in a little too much. I was so exhausted last week and I have a feeling this week will be no different. This month is going to be all about getting reacquainted with early mornings, any tips for me?
