Late July

It's August 1st and I for one am glad to realize this!  Last summer I had the epiphany that come the last week of July it's not the kid's who need summer vacation - it's me.  This year it snuck up on me just like it has in years past -  the subtle feeling that the house has grown smaller, my tolerance for noise of any kind has diminished, and I begin dreaming about hermiting away in a quiet little cottage in the woods. 

This year I decided it only fair that I would take at least one or (gasp!) two whole "personal" days if at all possible in late July.  Mr. Veen is on "stay- cation" this week and we agreed that I would take some time away and he would take some time away.  So yesterday I got the hell outta dodge and spent the day with myself.  Here's what I did:

1.  Some serious thrifting
2.  Burgerville triple berry smoothie
3.  Hair color and trim
4.  Impromptu pedicure
5.  Fish tacos and martinis
6.  Bachelor pad

I can't tell you how nice it was spending the day with my own thoughts and taking as much or little time as I wanted to!  It turns out I really like hanging out with me. 

Cheers to August and enjoying every last bit of summer!
