Home Again

I'm sitting on the porch soaking in the 75 degree weather, the sun streaming through the canopy of tree leaves, and the twittering of happy birds and bugs.
Just a few minutes ago, I enjoyed a piece of pie out here that I picked up at Ladybird and was actually hit on while eating it, which in my book is a definite compliment. After I told them the Cave was too sticky for me and the two gents continued walking by, an older man walked down the middle of the street with his two aging beagles. 
Slightly further down he stopped on the sidewalk to let the oldest one bark. And bark.
And that is just so Lawrence for ya.
It feels so good to be back, surrounded by familiar places and tree-lines streets. I can't wait to step foot on campus again and see the castle-like library, the flags waving atop Fraser Hall, and the hustle and bustle of KU t-shirt-clad students.
It's no ivy-covered Yale (I've been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls), but I just love it.

We Are (But Mostly He Is) Giant

Oh, San Francisco. Why do you feel so far away? 
This summer is already half over and it's seriously freaking me out.

These pictures are mostly in order.

Monday: Redwood forest, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown
Tuesday: Haight Ashbury
Wednesday: Union Square, Giants Game
Thursday: Ghirardelli, Fisherman's Wharf Round Two




















I wanted to do so much more with this post, but here we are.
Summer, man.

The greatest place we've found to take pics. It also feels very adventurous because there's a creepy trailer a little ways off that makes you feel like someone could be peeking out at you from behind a curtain.
So far, no sightings.
This outing was from a few weekends ago and I'm happy to say I've seen Molly twice since then. Maybe the most I've seen her all semester?? Sad but true. I plan on seeing her a lot more before we depart for our various summer activities. Being close to the end makes everything feel so much more manageable. 
Once you only have three weeks of school and papers to juggle, it seems actually do-able.

Weekend Round-Up

Leave a Comment



     


This weekend was lovely. So good. Much happy.
Saturday I wrote three pages of a paper I have been putting off for too long. That night the BPs were reunited. A good ol fashioned Mol, Mads, Ry and Kath event. We went to dindin where they cooked in front of us and everyone else was there in prom dresses. The chef asked what we were celebrating and I said never having to go to prom again. Ha.
Then we got drinks on the second floor of Henry's, the coolest place I've ever been. It is officially my favorite and my spirit location. We ended the night at Brothers-well, we officially ended at Fuzzy's, where I made everyone wait for me to get one taco.
It was beyond worth it.
Then Sunday morning Skyler came down (he actually woke up early for me...such love). I was supposed to work but ended up not having to, so we went to the rec and I stunned everyone in the building with how amazingly good I am at basketball. I try to tone down the skill level for him, but a girl can only do so much.
People always ask what we do when we've spent the weekend together, and a lot of the time I don't have anything monumental to share. We see movies. We go to dinner. We play basketball. We watch Netflix. We run errands. We eat cereal. We watch funny Facebook videos. And sometimes I feel bad for not having more to say, but the truth is I just enjoy doing life with him. Doing dumb and silly stuff that seems average is fine by me because he makes it that much better. We do the same things other couples do, we just have to drive three hours to do it.
Right now, I'm happy. I don't have life all figured out-in fact, it's way more un-figured than ever. But for the first time in a long time, I can honestly say I am enjoying where I am and that is 100% because of Skyler. I have gotten so much out of this semester because no day is wasted. Every day is a day with him, even when we're apart. So often in my life I feel like I am either looking back or just waiting to go forward. 
He makes it easy to just be here, now.
