Good morning people of the interwebs. Hope August is treating you well and if not, that's okay! 'Cause it's almost gone! What? You didn't notice? Neither did I. She's a sneaky one, that August. (note to self: name future daughter August, make sure she's sneaky)
I doodled this little phrase after reviewing my plans for August. I spent about four days in the mountains the other week for a church retreat. It was a nice change of scenery. I thought it'd be gross and mucky since there'd been a couple forest fires around our area but I was pleasantly surprised to see blue skies and breathe fresh mountain air.
Aside from the literal change of scenery, I felt like the retreat was a good get away from the daily routine. Yes, I was away from traffic, fast food chains, and overcrowded shopping plazas, but I was also away from the distractions of work deadlines, house chores, and social media. It was nice to get away and sort out my thoughts, as little as they may be. I'm just really terrible at slowing down. I'm also really easily distracted. So even a small road trip does wonders.
This weekend the Mister and I are heading to Monterey, CA to celebrate our first visit there one year ago (or you know, an anniversary of sorts). I'm looking forward to the beach breeze, the coastal town atmosphere, and more space to think.
Hope you guys have the chance to get away before summer's out. Ciao!
