I’m burnt out — words and writing currently evoke a feeling of complete and utter despair. Thus is the life of an English major who is recovering from three back-to-back papers. While I dearly love school, part of me misses the simple stress-free summer. With that in mind, I’ve returned to some of my favorite Instagram summer snapshots, and I wanted to share them with you. I also just don’t want to function and write a full fledged post…
These shoes survived high school, toured three different countries, and made several mountain treks. They just finished up a long week and rough hike at church camp in New Mexico, and now they're headed to England in 2016. Let the countdown commence. #studyabroad #travelislife #travelshoes #backpackingengland
After several days in the New Mexico mountains, it was nice to prop my feet up and find out about my upcoming study abroad venture.
It’s a cat. Better yet, it’s my literary kitty. She’s witty like Emma Woodhouse and insane like poor Ophelia.
Apparently my front porch is a great place to built a nest and raise a family…?
Buffalo Springs Lake is rather small, but it was also nice and peaceful. It was certainly the weekend I needed away from my job and summer semester.
Chicago was amazing, and I loved seeing some of the iconic spots. The Bean was so intriguing, but my favorite thing was the skyline’s reflection.
Yards are lovely, but library gardens landscaped to mimic a hobbit’s hill are brilliantly beautiful. I didn’t want to leave. Perhaps I’ll have my own Hobbit garden one day.
