Summer is a Frame of Mind.

While hearing friends complain about finals and 14-hour studying streaks, I was very grateful to have college behind me. However, when these same friends indulge in a 3 month "break" from responsibility, my envy kicks in. I decided that I, too, am going in "summer mode" and will try to stay up later, and do more spontaneous, fun things. Because that's what summer used to mean! Sure, there might be a morning here or there where I had to wake up early for a dentist appointment or something...but it didn't keep me from doing what I wanted the night before-only HOMEWORK or a TEST did. So...I have a job. And I love my job! But when I'm not on the clock, I will be in summer. This weekend was my first weekend of summer, and I must say...I think it will be my best summer yet.

I went to a fun graduation party during the day on Saturday, and another graduation/going away party that night. Sunday, George and I got some Thai take-out (I can never get enough!) and ate at Old Alton (also known as "The Old Goatman's Bridge"). We went for a sweet walk, then went back to his folks' place to make some homemade blackberry cobbler. We even got the berries from the yard. It was absolutely delicious. Before seeing "Bridesmaids" (Kristen Wiig CRACKS ME UP!), we had a beer and cheese fries at Snuffer's. It was SUCH an amazing weekend!
