Spring break has begun.

With my last and only final on yesterday for “Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings” (so interesting right?), spring has officially hit the ground running.

Got a bit of hiking and running in, two trips to the arboretum on campus, two trips to the beach (one for star-gazing and the other for reducing the whiteness that is ME), one trip downtown (which felt like the most perfect afternoon in July…sigh), and lots and lots of resting.

It’s weeks like this when I am reminded that San Luis Obispo is a gem. She boasts of the outdoors with endless nooks and crannies to be explored, and she convinces you that she existed long before a campus full of artificially-lit classrooms and studios did. It just takes a week without class and an extra hour of sunlight to realize it.

This week makes me want these:
summer nights–full of hearty conversation and giggles.
summer nights–in Italy.
summer nights–just so.

Milan is keeping secrets.

I’ve heard that Italian men are creepy.
But by the looks of Mr. Perfect on his perfect turquoise vespa,
I’d say the rumors are severely false.

disclaimer: Brita claimed him first.

Now we know where to find our future husbands.

lounging around the apartment in yoga pants on this beautiful san luis morning. the cushions are hugging me tightly, cafe au lait warming my insides, and i can barely see an open textbook on the other side of the coffee table. i’ve been waiting so long for a morning like this. no agenda, no appointments, no stress. just blog-surfing, facebook-stalking, online shopping. all of which are magnified by “royskopp forever” playing in the background.
