What I Learned On My Summer Vacation
Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from your favorite things, even when you don’t feel like you need it.
Few things taste better on a hot summer afternoon than a fountain soda.
Floating is the cheapest therapy.
Feeling taken care of is when someone else cooks dinner, fixes a plate, and calls you to the table where there are ferns in a glass and a seat for you.
A life without email — and the internet — is a fine life.
Shucking corn isn’t nearly as much trouble as it seems.
Outdoor yoga on a sunny afternoon will make you collapse with sweet exhaustion, like a baby ready for a nap.
Great ideas come on walks through the woods.
A change is scenery, no matter how humble, is good for the soul.
Reading is a habit, and a night spent with a book, a comfy couch, and a bright light is my new favorite evening.
A good mood is only a workout away.
After the disappointment wears off, there is a certain comfort in things not going your way; at least you don’t have to worry about it anymore.
There’s nothing more delicious than a perfect peach.
To remember what’s important, step out of your life, take the long view, and then feel how good it is to come home.
