Currently – June

Happy June, everyone! I am completely unprepared for this year to be half over; logically, I know that time has been passing, but I can’t wrap my head around the “how much” part. I guess I better start paying more attention. Along those lines, here is what I am doing Currently.

planning – my summer activities. While the month of June looks like it’ll be pretty quiet, July and August are starting to look alarmingly full. There is a family reunion, a very special birthday for a very special friend, a potential trip to Seattle, and all that is before we even take into account work and local social activities. Andy and I are going to spend the next month working out our schedules and our household budget to see how/if we’re going to fit everything in.

enjoying – quiet time. As sad as it is that we’re done traveling/having visitors for the next little bit, I have to say I have been enjoying having the house to myself (or relatively so when Andy is home). When I have people around I always feel like we should be out and about or “doing”, but if it’s just me? Yoga pants and my kindle.

buying – tank tops and flip flops. It’s that time of year again for Floridians; the thermostat is consistency over 90 degrees, and the humidity makes it feel like you’re swimming every time you step outside. I am trying to be a bit more thoughtful about my clothing purchases these days (Can I wear the item multiple places? Does it work with what I already own?) instead of what I normally do, which is find a sale at target and grab the same tank top in 10 different colors. As far as footwear goes, I am avoiding anything super cheap or plastic-y in favor of things that could in theory be considered “sandals”, but that are still easy to slip on and off.

craving – fresh fruit and fancy lemonade. If there is an upside to summer, it is the amazing produce available this time of year. I have eaten so many strawberries in the last few weeks, and I just bought my first watermelon of the season. All of that paired with the sweet tart crispness of a tall icy glass of lemonade? Perfection.

pinning – indoor crafting ideas. This is the time of year that I like to get a head start on my holiday crafts for the year. The days seem longer, and it gives me an excuse to hang out inside during the hottest parts of the day. Not to mention the craft stores are well stocked since they aren’t being raided for seasonal items.

What is on deck for your June? What are you currently planning, enjoying, buying, craving and pinning?

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
