Goodbye July

July is over, and I have mixed feelings about it.

The last four weeks have passed in the blink of an eye. I hadn't even fully had a chance to catch up with myself all month. It wasn't a bad month though. When I compare the positive and negative moments from the month, positive comes out on top. I'm smiling as I write this, because I'm just realizing that it's true. This month has flown by, but it's been full of illustrations I'm fond of, and photos with nice atmospheres, and goofy dogs, a mid-Summer drive through a good chunk of Texas, the ocean, and a brand new, perfect niece. I've added a couple more books to my collection, and a couple hundred to my ridiculous Amazon wishlist. I've thought of more ways to reorganize my space, which believe it or not is an actual hobby of mine. I feel more fulfilled than ever with this blog and the post I'm creating, and I'm ending the month with a feeling of accomplishment. Sure, I'm still stuck with the same health issues I've had most of the year, and my personal relationships could be better, but I'm okay. I'm content, and okay, and I think I've loved July for the first time in my life.

I hope July was just as good to you.


  1. Nothing can be perfect but it feels better when we focus on the good! July went by so fast! August will be my last month of pregnancy, can't believe it!!!
    Love the blue hue/grey in your pictures.
