AUGUST. and the end of summer. and stuff.

IT’S AUGUST. Meaning it’s almost autumn. MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR.

My summer ends this week, because when I return from India, it will almost be September! So, I figured I’d do my annual “monster end of summer post” now.

I spent a lot of time in the water. Like, more than any other summer.

At the beginning of the summer, I got to see the Minimalists speak, which was incredible! I loved seeing two of the men who changed my life in person. They recorded a live podcast in Minneapolis at the Cedar Cultural Center. They also hosted a third guest, a practicing minimalist who lives in Minneapolis.


Pride weekend was a BLAST! I went with some friends and ate good food and took lots of photos.
