I can’t believe September is just 10 days away (and I’m still posting photos from July…oops). My summer turned out nothing like I expected. I planned on lazy beach days, lots of parties and nights out with friends, and a few months of serious relaxation before August and September had me cranking out proposals at work. Things started off perfectly, but by mid-July, my summer veered a little off course. 
It feels like things have changed so much over the last six weeks, but even though I’ve been a little stressed, I think it’s for the better. The good news is I’m moving even closer to the beach! I’ve spent the last several weeks viewing every place for rent in my price range, and I finally found something and signed a lease with my roommate this weekend. I’ll be within walking distance of my boyfriend (and the new puppy!), the beach, and some of my favorite friends.
Things are about to get a little hectic at work (end of the government fiscal year), but October 1 marks my move date and the beginning of a (fingers crossed) relaxing fall season full of afternoons reading on my new patio, beach days here and there, bike rides, football, chili, and fun. 
There is one plan I stuck to — I wore every Hawaiian print article of clothing hanging in my closet at least once (if not twice) this summer. Just like I said I would. =)
