Full-brimmed hats and honey bees

This past week has been filled with party dresses, backwards walking (and stumbling), and chocolate chip cookies. It culminated yesterday with champagne, sun hats and an epic brunch in the backyard by the beach volleyball court — fajitas, almond croissants, blackberries, and mimosas. Some pushing and shoving in the crowds for Timeflies and Childish Gambino. Some cooling off in the fountain, and then a lazy night with lasagna and Game of Thrones.
And then, as if on cue, the sun is gone and I’m in the atrium library paging through Blood Meridian, looking for quotes demonstrating the relationship between horrific violence and humanity. I’m now settling into a routine of run, yoga — rediscovering weird twists that I thought were totally normal when I was 10-years-old —, lunch, library. It’s not so bad, but every time I sit down to write the 50 pages of required writing due next week, I start thinking about things I would rather be writing about. The lovely chocolate chip nuggets pictured below that may give my mom’s cookies a run for their money. The growing list of things I would love to be baking right now: coconut muffins, strawberry shortcake, peach pie. And then, on a rougher note, this weekend, I started thinking about how different things at school will be next year — and that’s going to take awhile to process.
