Oh summer. It’s such a special time of year. I mean, it completely throws me off my routine, but in the best kind of way. I took these photos a couple weeks ago when I was in Austin and practically living in these cut-off shorts in the 100+ degree heat. Cut-offs have totally been my jam this summer. They’re kind of the summer version of my holes-in-the-knees jean obsession. Before my trip to Austin I stopped in at GAP to see if there were any cute shorts, and I stumbled onto this adorable pair on sale. Suffice it to say, they’ve been on heavy rotation ever since. Clearly.

I’ve been spending my summer days oscillating between teaching summer school, working on my classroom for next year, summer projects around the apartment, and playing hooky with friends. It’s been lovely so far! I’m heading out on vacation again on August 5th, so I’m hoping to get my entire classroom done before I get on the plane. I’m switching grades and classrooms so there’s a lot to do, but I only let myself work on school stuff a few hours a day so I don’t get burned out. If anyone has a hankering to organize hundreds of children’s books in their off time, you just let me know! haha… The joys of teaching are endless.
