Fourth of July Old Hollywood

Fourth of July Old Hollywood

This past weekend, I found myself at an outdoor bar with the man I’m currently in an ambiguous relationship with…

It was evening, but the sun was still high in the sky and the breeze coming off the East River was just about perfect. “Schooool’s out. For. Summer!” sang Alice Cooper from the overhead speakers. School is not out, I thought. I am an adult and this song does not apply to me.

Still, there’s something delicious about summer. The beginning of June feels like standing on a bluff, gazing out at the wide expanse of relaxation stretching before you. It’s what Jane Austen referred to as “that sanguine expectation of happiness which is happiness itself.”

So, in the spirit of looking forward to stuff, I’d love to hear about the things you’re anticipating. This summer…

– What summer activity are you most excited to do?
– What TV shows or movies are you into watching?
– What’s on your summer reading list?
– What summer food (or beverage) can you not wait to consume?

As far as I’m concerned, I can’t get enough of evening walks and am momentarily thrilled by the presence of ice in my matcha. Upstate New York is calling my name. And now that I’ve pillaged my way through all of Killing Eve (and, ah-hem, RHONY is nearing season’s end), I’m desperately in search of new TV recommendations.

How about you? Share your answers in the comments below, so we can all look forward to something together. :)

P.S. How to plan your best vacation, and one thing NOT to do on a plane.
