I'm actually terrible at reading more than one book at a time but I always seem to have a book request waiting for me at the library. #cantstopwontstop 📚📚Anyone else? I just started Fangirl last night and it's already a fun summer read which is just what I needed. And on this rainy Monday (🌧🙌🏼😍) I've got a round up of recommended reading + listening + watching in a new blog post if you'd like some suggestions. ☺️ #kelseyreadinglately
Tiny wannabe mixologist bombing/making my Sunday happy hour snapshot. Followed by all the wrestling and shrieking (will our hearing survive??), pretending to be a pack of saber tooth tigers, and then tucking our tigers into their sleeping caves - the littlest one surrounded by at least six stuffed animals. 🐯🐯
This is the summer it finally didn't feel overwhelmingly stressful to check out our local public pools and now my favorite summer thing is a late afternoon pool dip + picnic dinner. ☀️🏊🏼♀️🥙 Extra #summerhygge points for seeing grey storm clouds roll in on our way home and watching rain on the front porch after bedtime. ⛈ . PS This is Dashiell's standard selfie face 😝🙃
When I came across this book I immediately recognized the cover. I had seen the picture on the cover in 2012 when Marina’s essay The Opposite of Loneliness when viral after she was killed in a car accident just five days after graduating from Yale. The photo and Marina’s story has stayed with me. Maybe because of the confidence of the photo or the tragedy of her death or that in her essay she captured the particular sadness-excitement-nostalgia of graduating college. The book collects her written works - essays, fiction, poems. So much for being only 22! They reflect her age but also her spirit and talent and it’s hard not to imagine what she would have gone on to write and accomplish when she'd already accomplished so much. #kelseyreadinglately
Summer monsoon season and cloudy, grey afternoons 😍🙏🏽🌧 #summerhygge
A little window of time between work and the boys getting home was spent making a quick plum pie (frozen dough + plums I froze a month ago) and hanging with @samsanders on the It's Been A Minute podcast.
