Reading: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins. I’ve been reading a lot of girly beach reads this summer, so a thriller/suspense novel is a nice change. It’s by the same author as Girl on the Train, and so far I’m really enjoying it!
Listening: Elysium/Love and War. My husband’s band released a new album recently, and (in my totally unbiased opinion) it’s wonderful. Give it a listen—The World is Alright is my favorite!
Planning: Lots of travel. I’m heading to Chicago and Nashville in the next couple weeks for work and taking my kiddos to camp. We also have a fun trip in the works for late November. Stay tuned!
Anticipating: Fall! I know it still feels like summer outside, but I’m getting excited for fall. As much as I love summer, I always look forward to fall. I love the cooler temps that allow for longer walks with Finley and dinners outside. I love football and changing colors and decorating with pumpkins. Plus, I’m just ready for a change in seasons. Bring it on, fall!
Praying: For Texas. The images coming out of Houston are heartbreaking, but the responses of so many volunteers who have gone there to help with clean up and rescue are pretty remarkable. There are some ideas of ways you can help or donate here.
