I did a lot of Bible reading,
I biked to the pool.
I got my first flat tire in thousands of miles, thanks to a goat head thorn.
I earned the best tanlines I've had since high school.
I eased back into running and biking.
I learned that exercising for my physical, mental, and emotional health actually makes me a happier person and it's possible to stay in shape without training for a race.
This summer was the best summer of my life.
And it ties with last summer for also being the worst summer of my life.
I enjoyed 7 blissful weeks off of school and redeemed my quiet time and my daily routines.
Of course, I wrestled with several existential questions and I'm still struggling with a few.
I was much more social that I have been in a long while.
I finished my weekend contract and then worked night shift for 2 weeks to help with staffing.
I kept my promises.
I went without internet at home for the month of July and I wish I could get rid of it again right now.
I stuck to a budget and I liked it.
I did more reading for fun than I've done in years.
I saw a lot of sunrises and sunsets.
I ate only local food for one week and it was much more work than I anticipated.
I committed to attending one church regularly instead of bouncing around.
I found a restaurant with a menu full of desserts that won't upset my stomach!
I found a butcher shop I love.
I found a sno cone/coffee/homemade soda shop I love.
I finally clicked with Kansas City. Greater things have yet to come, greater things are still to be done here.
I got to spend time with my family.
Ross and I took a staycation to Excelsior Springs in July and had a blast.
I fell more in love with my husband.
I fell more in love with my Savior, and my need for Him has never been greater.
I fell more in love with summer and more in love with life.
What was the best part of your summer?
