If I thought anyone's lives were even remotely affected by my absence since my timed post last week I would apologize for taking awhile to come back... but since I know they weren't- I'll just say I was busier than usual! Plus it's been super sunny so I've been outside on lots of walks eating popsicles like a 5-year-old.
Speaking of childlike activities; Last Sunday (7/8) after the 3rd night of a steaming hot apartment due to Summer weather where the boyfriend and I walked around in boxers and tank tops - we knew there had to be an ideal way to get some sleep (and no, we don't have air-conditioning. Pretty common in these parts because of our mild weather). "We" might be a strong term as he was willing to just go to bed and practice the heat-beating method of "sleeping under a bedsheet with one leg out" to fight the sweat... but I knew we could do more: we had a blow-up mattress, sleeping bags and a balcony outside... the recipe for success.
So under the stars in a fusion of "white trash camping" meets "make time for romance!"; The Boy and I slept outside for the night. I was kind of obsessed with it. We stayed cool and had the luxury of falling asleep to a starry night and gorgeous moon... PLUS we're just high enough up where the street traffic below can't see us to render us ridiculous.
But trashy idea or not, waking up at 6 AM to these two views... made me pretty happy.
|6 AM wake-up call on the balcony. Beautiful!|
|I made the bed outside and 'surprised' him with it. He was hesitant and made fun of me but was willing to do it. The norm.|
|I leave for work about 45 minutes before him so he's usually in bed when I leave. No exception this morning :) Just a different bed.|
Here's to a whole summer full of this blissful "camping".
Happy Wednesday! Today is actually my last day working this week but part of what I'm looking forward to in my PTO is having time to post so I'll definitely be around the rest of the week- have a beautiful day!
