Thankful Things

It's been a while since I've done this. Too long. 
Lately, I'm thankful for...

1. My new surfboard is a dream boat
2. Colors
3. This one gets a long description. This is The Hollywood Bowl for the Edward Sharpe concert (yes, it was awesome; they're great performers). I'm thankful for the blanket on my lap that you can't see in this picture. That blanket was key. Forgot water, forgot food on the long drive up in traffic and I was hungover, but I remembered the blanket. It kinda made up for all the poor decisions preceding it, but the venue made up for it most. The venue made this a summer memory for me. That venue is the cream of the crop, creme de la creme, you know...all that good sort of stuff. It got me thinking about how lucky the birds in the area are. That is, if they like human music. We like their music, but what do they think about ours? Are they like "This is the worst place to live! Peace!" or are they in the trees watching, stoked? Like it's prime nest real estate or something. Who knows.... maybe a birder (that's a thing, you know). Anyways...
4. Peace of mind..."Don't over think it". That was my instagram caption for this picture, and it's something I'm constantly having to remind myself.  
5. This summer pasta was good. Do you want the recipe?
6. Summer sleepovers. As much as I hate the house being disheveled, I love having company over. Please note the details-Nick, mouth open, Jason, Jason's girlfriend Sarah, Jason's sister Sarah, Phil reading in the chair, Mark hiding from the sun, random inhaler on the counter, air-mattress pump, shoes and socks, beer bottle. Signs of a good time? Yeah. 
7. Watermelon is probably one of my favorite flavors.
8. Dining out. We've been doing this a lot more this summer than usual.
9. This guy (who slides).


  1. i can't express enough how much i miss summer sleepover and popsicles. now that i understand about surfing a little bit better, i can understand the appreciation and praise for good surfboard.

  5. You have an fantastic list and set of photos to go with it! Your summer sleepover looks like a cozy sort of mess, and the photo is so interesting to look at. There's just a good mood about it.

  6. A light and happy post that has made me smile. The sleepover looks like it was fun. And the recipe? Oh yes please, if you could. Enjoy the rest of the weekend Devon.

  8. Watermelon is the best on hot summer days! And yeah, even if it makes the house totally disheveled, having beloved guests to stay over is fun!
