Last. Day. Of August. [Got that summertime sadness… 😉 ]
This month I’ve been lax with my posting because life has been busy, in a lot of good ways. In August I think we all try to squeeze in as much summer as we possibly can before it’s all over, and this month was no different for me.
August was such a short month: I started a new job writing lifestyle and editing for a site called Popcrunch, and I took all the time I could to spend time with friends, go to the beach, eat a LOT of ice cream, enjoy these summer nights, and do new things.
There’s this hiking trail in Peekskill, NY that my friends and I did this month, and it was basically climbing up the side of a mountain that opened up into this amazing view. Here are some pictures of the view from the top of the mountain:
And then a few days ago my sister and I went to the New York Renaissance Faire like we do every year! I absolutely adore the Ren Faire and happily indulge my dorkiness and my love for old-fashioned dresses.
Highlight: when I accidentally hit a bull’s eye during archery! I had an amazing Katniss moment and my sister caught it on camera.
That is the face of someone who will never hit a bull’s eye again in her life.
With a trip to San Francisco, a new job, and a lot of time spent with friends, this summer has been all I wanted it to be. How has your summer been? Have you done anything cool/fun/exciting?
