Summer. The June and July parts.

This summer was pretty nice. I didn't spend much time in Sorrento, as I left at the end of July for my month abroad, but it was beautiful and peaceful, as always. Here are a few tidbits from the America-bound parts of my summer.

My Zac brother graduated from high school. I am undeniably the shortest person in my entire family.

I picked and ate some fresh strawberries. So delicious! 

Got ice cream with these beautiful gals. 

Practiced my film photography.

 Walked around beaches with the Minnows.

Skipped rocks with Leverett.

Observed some glorious Sea Level sunsets.

Took a scenic route; saw a beautiful sunset over the bridge that I'm usually taking.

Hung out with my favorite five year old.

Made pasta from scratch.

Went for boat rides with a bunch of punks.

Made some blueberry muffins.

Spent several rainy days by a fire working on puzzles.
Dealt with the deaths of several of my neighbors.
Picked berries from my yard.
Finally got my own glow-in-the-dark stars Liberty Graphics tee shirt.

Minneapolis in May.

In May, I got to spend two weeks visiting my favorite people in Minnesota. It was really lovely, other than having a lot of homework to do.


              We tried Doritos Locos Tacos. 
We were pretty excited.
They were great.    

I made cauliflower soup.

We went thrifting and Kendra tried on this child dance/dress up costume.

Liam was Rosie the Riveter.

I enjoyed many mornings
in Kendra's beautiful sunroom.

One day Kendra and I went on an adventure to find this cool water tower and took a several mile walk around a lake. It was lovely. And because Minnesota is so flat, it didn't totally kill us (though we did get some huge blisters).
