summer dreams

this summer, i want to:

blow bubbles to my heart’s content, and pretend with my little sister that every bubble is a wish soaring to the wishing star

find a field of wildflowers and pick myself a bouquet

ride horses in valley forge park (or anywhere. it’s been a dream for awhile and may not happen this summer – but it is a rather summery thing to do, no? Hence why it made the list)

go paddleboating. or kayaking. or canoing. something on the water. with someone who hopefully won’t mind that I am very, very good at paddling in circles


read good books. books that feed my mind and heart and soul

write letters. the real, old-fashioned kind that require a stamp and a postman

delight in once again seeing the early-morning Philadelphia skyline, in riding trains and simply being charmed that I can wander around the city independently, have these internships, and learn so much

catch fireflies

listen to my summer songs: owl city & ingrid michaelson & the beach boys

love the sea: the sand between my toes and the ocean meeting the horizon and seeing as far as i can see

telephone calls and catching up with dear friends as i walk the Philadelphia sidewalk again, wandering around in the inbetween time of off-work and my train arriving

find waterproof mascara so i’m not a total mess when i watch one of my best friends (and my college roommate) become a bride

dance and celebrate at so many summer weddings

be grateful for every good and perfect gift from above
