Capturing lots of beautiful, late summer scenery like the photo above.
Walking as much as I can! Living in a part of town that is close to so much has helped step up my walking game. That, plus the cooler weather is bringing it to the next level.
Checking out this trailer for a new series called "Sorry For Your Loss". It is always comforting to see grief getting a voice in media.
Drinking pineapple beer (it's good!) and tangerine La Croix.
Reading this article about grief and the breakdowns that seem to visit out of nowhere. "Make no mistake, there are no blank canvases. Only stained ones waiting to be repainted."
Watching "Set It Up" on Netflix. It was a cute, modern romcom!
Listening to "Big Brother" coverage on Rob Has a Podcast. It continues to be my not so guilty pleasure!

Going to LA again, but this time to work on an amazing project with The Dinner Party that should be out in September! I met wonderful people who shared, loved, and held space for me and each other. It felt good to be with other young people who are open about grief and how we live our lives after loss.
Craving pizza! I had a delicious dinner while in LA at MidiCi, and their pizza has been on my mind ever since.
Loving the influx of "fairy doors" I've noticed at my local parks. Toying with the idea of adding one of my own. Why not?! Now to pick a theme...
Celebrating my brother's life this August. Thank you, love you, miss you, Rich.
