Well, the first day of fall is quickly approaching. Since I was somewhat MIA from blogging this summer, I never got around to posting the “Summery Summary” as Jon coined it. So before we descend into sweaters and scarves, here’s one last look back on the warmer (scorching) days of 2012.

It’s been a lovely summer. Pure Michigan.

Sometimes, when it just gets too hot to handle, you gotta break out this jam and embrace it.

Summer Pre-Game 2011

First few weeks with my digital SLR. Shot all this with default exposure at 30fps. Hoping to do more playing/artsy stuff soon.

Enjoy!

I don’t know what this is. I’m a dork.

in other news, I had no idea peach freezee pops existed, but they are amazing.

It’s dang hot outside. Here’s a sappy, but refreshing vintage photo for you.
Also, it’s my 1,000th post! Huzzah!

GPOY - POV

This is my view of my room right now. It’s depressing. This is only a small fraction of the devastation.

and it smells like weed from the fan blowing in the air from my West Side neighborhood.

I’m at that point again. Cluttered room, cluttered mind. Once I clean out the first it always seems much easier to clean out the second.

Refocus. Simplify.

I need to make some Summer lists. Books, goals, etc. Seems to have worked for Alex.

Happy Summertime!

This evening contained:

-an impromptu walk down to John Ball Park with Craig.
-dipping our feet in the fountain.
-Arizona Sweet Tea.
-a breezy, summery skirt.
-stovetop s’mores.
-editing wedding footage.
-guilty pleasure movies.

I made jam!

and it’s very summery-tasting.

Been messing around with different hair styles recently. If there was one look I wish I could pull off, it would be straight-up rockabilly, but I just can’t. So for now I will just try to take some of the vintagey things I like. I was going for this, but please someone tell me if I ever start leaning toward this.

I’m sleeping on my folks’ pull out couch again. Watching a really old John Denver concert on PBS. It’s strange that with the window open I can hear the cross-walk signals from Oakland and Parkview from here.
