Four years ago, I started writing out my Summer Bucket List with Cooper.  It’s a good way to set intentions/a guideline of what we each want out of our Summer.  It keeps us on task and it’s really great at the end of the Summer to look at the goals we set and accomplished.  We also do this before we go on vacations! It’s a very fun/helpful process.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane:

Here’s what this past week looked like!  Week 22 of My Everyday Life

Baseball tournament! Dinner + arcades.

Rubber ducky, you’re the one.

Somewhere in Sunnyvale.

We had two really crazy games that went into overtime. We won the championships though!!!  YAY.

Travels with blanket. 

A foul ball hit me in the arm. That was exciting. It also hurt like a mofo.

Raindrops on Casey’s car.

Celebratory In & Out.

Shipping off food journals!  Thank you for your orders!!!

Check out my Etsy store for more!  I’ll be bringing some new stickers to the shop soon. Stay tuned!

I look forward to spending time on our deck.

Catching some Sun in the afternoon.

A moment to myself, salad.

This week I photographed a bunch of things for One Potato. 

I take all of the photos for their recipe cards. It’s fun to think about how many people can learn how to cook through my photography.

Currently obsessed with:

When you don’t have buns, a slice of bread will do.

Dad came over for a bit!

I looked down while I was talking to my friend at baseball and there a taco pillow at my feet. Lol.

Doctored up tamales.

I had my friend Kris over and her son Sebi for breakfast!

Family dinner at Hillstone’s this week. My Dad wanted me to take a picture of his Manhattan.

KALE SALAD AND A BAKED POTATO or die!

This week I was religious about writing down what I ate in my food journal.

I spent time working on my closet this week, prepping it for my Summer wardrobe.

Watering plants is the way I meditate.

My hair is doing things.

This color.

This sign!  For a while it said Satuday. No R.  Kinda sad they fixed it.

Studio visit!  My friend Kendra opened up a new space in San Anselmo called Convert Studios!

My friend Lauren with Kris’ new pup, Rooney!

Magical light.

I will be teaching some classes here sometime soon!  I CANNOT WAIT!

The afternoon light is delicious.

I can’t wait to play with shadows.

All the props!

Gee, I wonder why I gravitated toward this section.

Student ready! 

My friend Kendra is a magic maker.

Star in the alley.

The light this time of year excites me.

See???

A moment when I felt my mom with me.

Enchiladas to go! 

Look at this cattitude.

Pool party at a friend’s house with a view!

I was wearing my Mom’s hat to the baseball game yesterday and I went to look inside and was happy to see the word MAGIC.   It’s the little things.
