July. We’re officially deep into summer. I’m definitely a broken record over here, but for reals, where is this year going? And crazy talk time: this month is the last in my 20s. That’s insane to me. There is so much to look forward to this month, from friends’ birthday parties, to random theme parties, to the simple pleasures of summer (like cold watermelon, fresh corn, and hopefully getting to the beach one of these days). I have to be honest too — on a more somber note, July is often a bit of a tough month for me, just because it’s the anniversary of my dad’s passing. This year will be 20 years since he’s been gone — forget where 2014 is going, where did the last 20 years go? I often find myself in a bit of reflection mode during July, and this year will surely be no different.
Contemplation of the passage of time aside, I’m excited to tackle the 7th month of this year. A bunch of interesting, challenging projects are starting, one big one (for myself!) finishing up, and even though the weather is getting unpleasantly hot (for me at least), there really is nothing like enjoying a warm summer night. I’m relishing it.
What do you have planned this month?
