This past weekend served as catch-up for me from the week. I never feel like doing anything productive after Recess, so everything seems to pile up on my days off. Justin and I went to the Farmer's Market and picked up some lovely fresh fruits and veggies and I did laundry, went grocery shopping, and cleaned my apartment. Where is all of this productivity during the week!?
Yesterday was spent at Rocky Gap Beach in St. Joseph, Michigan, with some awesome friends. The water was perfect and the beach was beautiful. Despite a headache that plagued me all day, it felt good to just relax, swim, and enjoy great company.

July 4th is coming up on Wednesday and I'm grateful for the day off. Justin and I have been together for four years (and have been engaged for almost a year) and our families have never met or even talked to each other, so Justin's family has invited my family over for a cookout on Wednesday for lunch. I think we are both nervous, but I hear it's better for them to meet now than at our wedding in October! I'm sure it will be a fun meal with the LaFollettes and the Samsons. :)
I've been working really hard lately on submitting my writing to various literary journals and magazines in an attempt to get published. I heard back from a web-zine last week and they have accepted two of my poems for publication! I'm so excited. It's just a start, but it's definitely reassuring as a writer to hear that someone else appreciates my writing!
