I'm feeling pretty excited about summer, when my dreams turn from sweet pink blossoms to clear blue water. I have no real plans, as I find that I'm usually lethargic in summer and just want to be outside riding my bike or lying in the park, reveling in the haze, eating summer fruit. The other day Geoff was ironing tote bags and I realized that the very idea of doing that in our apartment in August made me shudder. In my case, summer is usually the death of productivity, but how enjoyable it is...
1. Summer Goals
Anne & Christie maintain Summer Goals, a blog containing all the best summer imagery & wishes for hot times. They are working on a new project that they've asked me & Geoff to be a part of, and it's made me think quite a lot about my own summer goals. Renting tandem bikes on the island. Ice cream & iced coffees. Hot pink nail polish. Baskets and baskets of Ontario peaches, Mexican food, rosé. Nothing grand at all.
I imagine that by now almost everyone knows that the tote we collaborated with Summerland to make is now available... I'm just really thrilled about it (It's just always so much more fun to work with people you adore, and I really adore Megan!). I keep finding myself idling browsing Summerland for pretty things to add to my mental wish list.
3. Summer Water
Some of you may recall that last summer I worked with Caitlin on Summer Water... we're gearing up to start working on it again. Fingers crossed that I can get my act together before the oppressive heat of July!
I just realized that all the ladies I have mentioned in this post are people that I have been lucky enough to have spent time with on our trips to Portland and Chicago last year! Aw, I love it.
Arlie: That's interesting! It's probably just a coincidence, but there are lots of amazing people here, it's true.
DEADWEIGHT: Wah, sad she couldn't make it after all.
Jen: Glad you liked it!
gbf: Yes, it's great!
kate / tinywarbler: I never did find out if they met each other or not... So funny.
galatea.: I think it's so cute too!
Ella: Thank you!
Miss Crowland: Excitinggggg!
