I'd say welcome to August, but that just doesn't seem appropriate now that the month is half over. What the hell? The past few weeks have flown and I hardly even noticed. Blogging got bumped down my to-do list because of work, family visits and too many wedding to count, so I thought it was at least time for an update. Here's a look at life lately and my new definition of "normal":
While I was uploading photos for this post, I realized that my entire camera roll is full of summer sunsets, coffee shops work sessions and happy hours with friends. Now, call me crazy, but those three things really add up for the perfect summer. I mentioned a few weeks back that these hot months take on a different meaning after graduation, but that doesn't make them any less enjoyable. In fact, this summer really defined the "new normal" that I have more than just four years to enjoy.
I have my favorite coffee shops and restaurants, my favorite back roads home and local grocery store. I never thought a sense of familiarity and routine would mean so much in life. But post-grad life comes with a whole new set of priorities, I guess. Working at a PR agency, there's definitely no "normal" routine. But life outside of the office? That's a whole different story.
What else is new? If you haven't heard, I'm working on an exciting new passion project that proves just how big of a blogging and social media nerd that I am. Nothing here are Coffee and Cardigans will be changing, but I hope you'll follow along with Callie Creates as well! Click over to the new website to learn more.
