autumn is a second spring // where every leaf is a flower - albert camus

this summer went by so fast, despite that it has been the "quietest" summer I can remember. we didn't have much going on, so I read. 42 books exactly since June 1st. I decided at the beginning of the year that this would be a year of much reading, because I have the time. I don't have a job currently, or college classes claiming all my time, so I set a relatively high goal for myself of 150 books. I just finished my 104th book late last night, and am 70% done with my challenge. 

I went on a road trip with some of my favoritest people on earth, (including this AMAZING person, she's in the gorgeous blue dress. ;)) and we got to play on the beach a little, and spend a lot of time being girls. :)

my brother trapped his second American Kestrel Falcon, (he is currently an apprentice falconer.) This is Odin, and his is gorgeous, fun to watch, and also insanely adorable when he puffs all his feathers out so that he looks like a super fat little robin. Kestrels are the smallest falcons in the US, and Odin is pretty tiny. Don't let that fool you, he is still perfectly capable of hunting and holding his own. 

I'm looking forward to fall, with the beautiful colors, {hopefully} the crisp, gorgeous days, dressing in boots, sweaters and scarves, and drinking many cozy warm drinks. This fall will bring lots and lots of school, (this is my senior year,) and maybe a job, and lots more changes. I think this is the year of change for me. 

this is a super rambly post, but ya know, i'm kind of a super rambly person, so it works. :) so let's talk.. how was your summer? Any special memories or experiences? :)

  1. The kestrel is so cute! And what a good name for him. Also, I love the Camus quote. :)
