Hello lovelies

,,,

Happy Summer 2020!

Although this summer certainly doesn't look like what most of us would have expected, I just wanted to take a minute to re-circulate the appreciation for summer itself!

Right now, a lot of things have been uncertain, disappointing, and sometimes, even difficult or frightening. But despite it all there is so much good stuff we can still count on! This is the important thing to remember.

Below, I've compiled a list of some of my favorite things about summer,
things that cannot be cancelled

- they will either stay or return, no matter what's going on out there in the world!

So get inspired, try some of these favorites, or figure out your own!

happy Sunshine Days everyone. Enjoy!
