Around Here is inspired by the series by Elise Blaha-Cripe.
In this series, I want to share some photos of the more personal-side of Campfire Chic and to hold myself accountable for a few projects that I would like to finish.
I have a serious question: Are board shorts for women not “a thing” anymore? I know I griped about this in my kayaking essentials post, but holy crap, talk about hard to find! Board shorts are my new white whale. Anyway, Alex and I are kayaking quite a bit (no, we didn’t end up buying kayaks last weekend — the issues of storage and transportation outweighed everything else) lately and one of the places we visited to get back into the swing of things was Dana Point, CA. Alex took the top photo as we tried to find a spot to sit down and enjoy the waves on the jetty that separates the calm marina from the ocean.
What’s the most difficult part of Project Life®? There are a few: remembering to take enough photos, remembering to sit down and order said photos, and then sitting down to put them all together. I worked in front of the A/C to put together a master list of all the photos I needed to order in order to catch up on this year’s binder. I expect the photos to be in my mailbox tomorrow, so this weekend should be full of the sound of my paper cutter!
Some friends hosted a Game Night at their apartment and we played Ticket to Ride (I won!) To be fair, I play the iPad version of this game A LOT, so maybe that helped with my unexpected win? We also played Munchkin, which was fantastic. If I didn’t mention this before (maybe on Twitter?) I may be joining a Dungeons and Dragons campaign this fall. Because, why not?
In case you missed the email, Amy and I announced that 30 Days of Lists will be back in September! We had a 3 hour working Skype meeting two weeks ago and got a ton of work done. We’ll be posting some more behind-the-scenes photos on the 30 Days of Lists Facebook page and in upcoming emails to the mailing list, so if you’re interested in how we plan such a big event, you can like the page and subscribe to the list.
Seriously, I’m spoiled living someplace where I can get to the beach in about 2o minutes and have the opportunity to kayak in places as beautiful as the Newport Lower Bay and Newport Back Bay. We’ll be spending much more time on the water this summer…it’ll give my legs a chance to catch some rays!
I finally updated my profile photo here on this site and on my Twitter profile — Amy took the old photo of me last July and my hair has changed a lot since then and I think a photo of me in a dress didn’t make any sense here. I have Alex to thank for the new photo!
