Happy Thursday!

Ready for a weekly dose of randomness? I have no idea how this week has gone by so quickly. Time flies when life is crazy, I guess. One of these days, I’ll probably realize that I am the crazy one, not “life,” and then I will laugh and go on with my day. Until then, though…I am so looking forward to my upcoming mini-vacation.

A few other things on my mind…

*Despite the heat this past week, I have been all about savory oatmeal. Whatever works. IMG 1646 300x300 - Thinking Out Loud

*The Newport Folk Festival Playlist on Spotify is all the things to me this week.

*Oh, Instagram. I love when people are, like, “So I caught this fish and cooked it on a rock,” and I’m all, “Look at this crap deli iced coffee I drank at my desk at 7:30 this morning.” What am I doing with my life? IMG 1620 300x300 - Thinking Out Loud

*Speaking of what I’m doing with my life, I spent some time planning things to do when I go to Milan. So excited! Even though it’s still over a month away, I’m having major travel anxiety dreams, but having plans (especially plans to deal with those anxiety triggers) helps me look forward to all the good stuff instead of fixate on the scary.

*To help me settle down for sleep lately, I’ve been rubbing lavender oil on my temples. I swear it helps!

*Matcha is also back as my go-to afternoon pick me up on those work-from-home days. I’m trying not to drink coffee after 2 pm, so this has been a huge help with focus on projects. IMG 1626 300x300 - Thinking Out Loud


What’s on your mind today? Any fun summer trips in the works?
