Weekend Reading 6.29

You guys. it's June 29th... how did we get here? I know,  I know "said every blogger ever", but seriously. It finally feels like true summer in Maine (a glorious thing), and after a week of news that felt... well, it felt awful and I realized last night my mind has been in complete maintenance mode, I'm excited to get outdoors and forget about real life for a couple of days. Maybe you are too? We're thinking about a hike or kayaking tomorrow (with temps expected to reach 90, I think kayaking will win), then probably the beach on Sunday. I've been trying to figure out our July 4th plans - to be honest, with all the garbage that's going on right now in the country, I'm not feeling very festive. But I'm looking forward to taking a break mid-week to maybe get out to one of the islands and relax – and I'll be donating to the ACLU. I'm also headed in for a fresh haircut next week and as of right now, am planning on a bit of a chop (like everyone it seems these days - perhaps related to the current political climate?). I'm so tired of the extra weight on my head, and lately, I haven't had the patience for hair. Anyone else feel me on this?

Well there you go - Friday brain dump. Hope you're hanging in there. Enjoy the links! XO

I'm a long-time reader, but don't know that I've ever commented before! I just want to say that reading your blog is like a well-curated glimpse into the insides of my head--a blend of the heartfelt, academic/intellectual interests, and pretty things. It always makes me feel good to sit down and read it, especially these round-up style posts. As you mention, the news these days can be incredibly disheartening. It's really a refreshing escape to see this type of content--you address the goings on, but rather than just bemoan it, you share ways to be proactive, as well as a dose of inspiring stories and beautiful clothes/art/lifestyle that provide a much-needed boost. Thank you, Julie!
