Windblown

Ever notice how January, February and March totally drag on while June, July and August are gone in what seems like the blink of an eye? When I was a kid it felt like summer lasted forever, now not so much.  Totally bums me out.

So this summer I've made the scared as hell pointed decision to take fewer work projects in order to soak up as many warm days as possible. The past couple of years I've found myself at the beginning of September with a lot of regrets for not having done simple things like beach bonfires, a day at Disneyland or tackled a summer reading list. I'm feeling old lately, like time is running out. It really sucks and I don't want it to get the better of me so here goes nothing. 

The other day was hot. I mean SO HOT you couldn't go barefoot on the concrete. Embracing my inner rebel and the dull realization that it won't be long before any time in the sun could leave me shriveled up like a prune, I hauled it down to the beach and found a bunch of other people who had abandoned their jobs, too.  Hmmmmm, I think I'm onto something here.

I like your idea of less office time and more beach time. I feel like the summer is quickly slipping by too.

No beach plans for me, but I will be going to the amusement park for the first time in years. I can't wait for the roller coasters and funnel cake. :)

Perfect! I am sooo taking up this motto now. I need to remember to live in each moment and day in the summer. I know I should be obsessed with looks, but dang.... Can I have your body?

Jessica said...

Jobs. Who needs 'em? I'd be much more content to be a traveling beach bum for life ... too bad I need my job to fund it. Technicalities.

Also, pretty fantastic oasis transformation below! If you need someone to drink there with you, I'm game.

Ugh, these photos are killing me - I want to switch lives with you, like now.

If I looked like this with a tan I wouldn't have the SPF 70 stockpiled for the beach next week!

Lena at A Crimson Kiss said...

This sounds like heaven. I'm trying to scamper out of the office on the earlier side of the day lately, just so I can enjoy more fresh air and sunshine!

Krystal said...

Enjoy your summer girl, you deserve it. You've been working so hard and a little relaxing time is always good. BTW, I so wish Lola and I could fly to visit you this week, it's gonna be HOT in DC.

LyddieGal said...

I know exactly how you feel - like I'm lamenting the loss of summer before it is even begun.

and summer seriously did last longer when you were a kid. since ya know, you weren't working 5 days a week.

but i'm with you. get to the beach as much as possible. read those books, ride some roller coasters, dine al fresco.

savor.
