The sun has finally arrived! I spent my Friday morning reading for two hours in bed. I can’t remember the last time I was so caught up in a book I didn’t bother to rise for coffee… That’s a summer weekend at its best. May your days be long and your reading glasses be near.

Dream house? Possibly. Maybe. Definitely. I spotted it while walking through Old Salem this Saturday in Winston Salem, NC. Can’t say I’ve ever seen such a serene, lush place that felt so spooky! Very eerie despite the hustle and bustle of a farmers market, tavern, and old, old bakery. But that bright, May sun– that I can handle.

Mornings as of late? Close to perfect. By now, spring is basically summer in Charleston and I can’t remember feeling so warm (and dare I say it- calm) in far too long. My twenty-first birthday kicked off the first day of the month and the invisible, twinkly, birthday magic hasn’t exactly stopped. I don’t know why. I keep telling it to stop. But things, right now, 100% rule. I have finally recovered from the exam week from hell, where I briefly hated being awake in the morning, since they were not entirely mornings but nights rolling into the next day, all of which were soul-sucking and awful. And like all difficult things, it ended quicker than I could continue to continue to cry over it. Since, everything feels beyond shocking in its simplicity. Mornings are laying in bed with actually nothing to do…for hours…but bask in the emptiness, and freedom, of that feeling. I’ve had mornings at work, mornings in cafés, mornings at barre classes, mornings on a yoga mat, mornings oversleeping, mornings in Raleigh full of love & coffee & listening to Danny practice keyboards or guitar or sing that new Usher single, mornings on the beach with cocktails & hung over, happy people, mornings celebrating my mom & all mothers, mornings celebrating me. And I don’t why it matters, but it all does.
