Ten Things I Loved In June

My friend, Rosie Molinary, made a list and I loved hers so much I stole her idea. Last month I was late to the party {click here for May’s list}, but now I’ve been inspired to pause and notice the good stuff each month.

Here are Ten Things I Loved In June 

Things I/We Did

1.      Summer Break!!! –  Our little family survived our first school year and have enjoyed having more time with Jed/papa the last couple weeks.

2.      Wearing dresses and leggings to play with Ruby in the park and the most wonderful thing happened. A mom (wearing capris and a t-shirt) came up to me and told me I looked beautiful in my dress and that I’d inspired her to wear the dresses hanging in her closet. Talk about a way to make someone’s day!

3.     My workout partner has returned!  Boy, let me tell you, friends, I am a social creature when it comes to exercise. I will gladly do anything as long as I have a partner to do it with. Let to my own devices, I’m on Facebook.

4.     Taking Ruby to visit UC Davis and letting her walk around campus. We visited during finals week and she happily said hello to every stressed out student she encountered. Made me wonder where (or if) she’s going to college. *gulp*

5.     We hosted long-time friends (like from junior high!) for a potluck. Why do I resist having people over? Please remind me to do this more often.

In The Kitchen

6.     Vegan Oreo Cupcakes. – Potlucks rock.

7.     Thundersticks

Products (and Services) I Love

8.      Dansko sandals – I wear the clogs and Mary Janes to teach and secretly covet other teachers’ sandals so I decided to make these mine. Must have been a good omen because they were on super sale.

9.      It’s All Yoga – yes, I know I teach there. I also take classes there. Such goodness.

10.      The Dreamer – Rhett Miller’s latest (and best) solo record. Brilliant and self-produced.


So what are you loving lately? I’m always on the lookout for what is delicious in food, drink, fashion, and life. Leave me your favorites in the comments or write a post of your own and link back here.
