Today is transitional!
I just got back from San Francisco. The time change is only two hours, but the lifestyle change is drastic. As I am settling back in to healthful habits and waking up after 4 hours of sleep, I am also re-packing for a rapid turn around. With less than a full night’s sleep at my apartment, I am heading out for the New Harmony Music Festival, where I will spend time with my family and deliriously blissful time with friends that are basically family. I am looking forward to this next trip, but I really have been going at full force. Going on vacation and to a festival and to visit family… but still, going! It may be late August before I’ve spent a full week at my apartment. Today is about getting myself in order and resetting to the pace of the rural midwest.
I am looking forward to a long drive with music, my thoughts, and my cat…actually, not especially psyched about driving alone with the cat, really, but I suppose it will be nice to catch up with him after the long trip away!
Hoping your summer weekends are lazy and restorative.

Yesterday I went out to brunch as an early birthday celebration. Here is where we went and what we ate!
We had THE BIGGEST BRUNCH at The Hash House. It was warm enough to sit on the patio and sip iced coffee!
Then we went to the 3 Arts Gallery, which is a Restoration Hardware in a unique architectural space. We put our name in for the 2 hour wait for a table under the sparkly chandelier, and browsed the store (testing all the leather couches) until a seat opened up! Check out that chandelier behind the espresso and salted caramel ice cream!
A special bonus: we went shopping and browsing afterwards, and Madewell gave me a $25 gift card! Sign up with them as a Madewell insider to get a special birthday present!
Today I am reflecting on how much good I have in my life. I am feeling exceedingly fortunate, and the word “bountiful” popped in my head while I made my lunch. Even after my bountiful board of crackers and cheese was depleted, the word has stuck with me. I especially appreciate the double definition- to be rich in something, or to be generous in your giving.
large in quantity; abundant
“She provided a bountiful supply of crackers and cheese for her guests.”
“He was exceedingly bountiful to the one he loved.”
I feel that today I am seeking my good fortune, and sharing it, too. Here’s to a bountiful Sunday for you.
