Come Monday

You didn’t think I’d let the long weekend end without posting an end-of-summer music video, did you? (I’ve probably done this enough times now to make an entire playlist…)

For the record, I think this video is weird. Scroll down and look at some pictures instead. 😉

Some of my favorite memories from this summer:

Hanging out with my brother. Especially the time we managed to fit in kayaking, paddle boarding, and surfing all in one weekend. And the time we spent the afternoon moving his stuff off his ship.

Blackbeard’s Revenge scavenger hunt w/coworkers from 1701.

Tina’s (kind of) annual crab feast.

Hanging w/my parents @ the Jimmy Buffett concert.

Painting the picnic tables @ 1701.

Sunrise bike rides.

Relaxing on the porch. With the dog. And delicious coffee.

Driving out to the beach to snap photos of a lightning storm.

Beach days for days. Especially the ones with all of these super cool neighbors, like Labor Day and the 4th of July.

Riding my bike to go see Wonder Woman in the air conditioned theater on a super hot day.

Celebrating 1701’s first birthday!

Winning this Inside Business Entrepreneurial Excellence Award.

My solo, 29-hour vacation, where I spent the night in Charlottesville and the following day in Shenandoah National Park. Especially my hike down to a waterfall. 🙂

The weekend Nicole came to visit, which ended with this hilarious dolphin-watching cruise and a trip to Big Sam’s for clam strips…even though they were all out of clam strips. 🙂

Long, productive work days at 1701…and on the beach.

Breezy evenings by the ocean at sunset. I’ll never get enough of those.

So let’s hang an anchor from the sun. I have no idea what that means, but it sounds impossible and complicated, and I am pretty good at accomplishing impossible and complicated things. ⚓☀️🎶

P.S. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness is coming to the Norva on April 15, 2017. (Don’t worry. That’s a Saturday. So your tax return isn’t due until the 17th this year.) 🙂

On Repeat: Lana Del Rey

Yesterday, I happened to catch episode 4 of Music’s Cool w/Chilly Gonzales on Beats 1.(Yes, I chose Apple Music over Spotify, and I love it.) As a former oboe player who spent hours upon hours playing, practicing, and studying music during high school and college (including two summers at band camp), I was immediately taken with this intricate dive into the music of Lana Del Ray. I especially enjoyed the comparisons and similarities drawn between her melodies and other popular music throughout history. Can’t wait to catch up on the first three episodes Music’s Cool, and listen to the next few through the end of the year!

Just checking in. It’s been awhile. The world may be going to hell in a handbasket. Or maybe it isn’t. Either way, I’m just hanging out, trying to stay cool (literally), starting a coworking space, and trying to squeeze in the beach days, the bike rides, and the boat drinks whenever I can. Life is busy, but things are good. Cheers. 🙂
