I think my brain short-fused when I turned the flower shop calendar over last week… I stared blankly at the new month’s page for a good 20 seconds before I could accept that it is, in fact, August. I saw a meme on Instagram that said, “June and July lasted 4 seconds,” and it gave me some comfort; maybe I’m not the only one who feels like we just celebrated the new year, yet somehow we’re halfway through the summer.
I always make big plans at the start of the season, filled with barbecues, DIY home projects and weekend beach trips, but in reality, the last two months were a blur of work, humidity, brutal summer allergies, and heat-induced lethargy that resulted in a lot of Netflix and Chill In The AC.
Fortunately, we still have plenty of the season ahead of us — don’t even talk to me about pumpkin spice anything until October — so I have some time for a summer redemption.
Maybe I’ll drag myself down to the community pool for 5 minutes this weekend. ;)
Now onto this week’s highlight reel! (Truth: some of these are from last week, too; I started this post last Friday and then forgot to finish it. #summerbrain)
