Life Lately

I never know what to title these kinds of posts (or most posts really) and maybe this sort of "update" post should be its own little series, but here I am to fill you in on what's been going on in my neck of the woods the past few weeks! It has been a pretty busy time for me, though there have been a lot of fun things sprinkled in. Let's see... Where shall I begin?

+ One of my best friends got married! I am so happy for her. It was a beautiful backyard wedding and I had the privilege of being in charge of all the decorations. I loved spending the day with her and being there to help her get ready and spend those last moments with her before she walked out to meet her husband. It is kind of crazy to think that people I know that are my age are starting to get married (and that my sister got married when she was my age!) because I am so not there yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm in a happy, loving relationship, but I still want and need to grow up and learn things on my own first before I embark on that journey. So, for now I will settle with showering my friends with love on their special days and dream of what I want my own wedding day to be like!

+ Tomorrow I'm heading to San Diego! I have the next week and a half off of work, so I'm going down to Southern CA to hang out with my family. Gosh I just love my family. I always feel so lucky when I have the time to get away and spend time with them. I'm really looking forward to just relaxing, going to the beach, and doing other fun things while I'm there.
+ I have another week off at the end of July! I know it is good to work to make and save money, but I'm secretly (or not so secretly!) happy that I have two whole weeks off this month! My friend and I were planning to take a road trip, but that sadly isn't going to work out with her schedule, so now I need to decide what to do with my free week. I am thinking of going back to Southern CA just for fun because why not?! Or, maybe sticking around town to work on whatever projects I have been putting off and connecting with friends. I don't know! Either way, I am pretty grateful to have some time off, especially since I start at my new college next month :)

+ I have been taking a typography class! For the past four weeks, I've been making my way through a summer typography class and tomorrow is actually the last class session. I wasn't really sure what to expect from the class, but I have really been enjoying it. It is actually pretty fun and fascinating! It helped me feel like I am getting closer to being a real graphic designer, which is really awesome. As a class assignment, we had to make an online portfolio of some of our work from the class, so I chose to make a Pinterest board for mine. You can check it out here if you're interested! I'm definitely the most proud of my midterm project.
+ I love summer! Even though I'm working more than usual and have been taking a class, I've had plenty of time for some fun! Going to the pool has especially been one of my favorite things. I recently got a new high waisted bathing suit (ahh! I'm still not sure how I feel about it, but oh well!) and a sun hat, so I've been feeling kind of stylish while hanging out pool side :) The warm weather has also been quite nice for evening walks and staying outside longer. Summer usually brings less work and more fun, so I'm quite the fan!

Well, that's what has been up with me! How about you? How is your summer going?
