Last Friday Scott and I headed down to the Agritopia Community to meet-up with Brandi at The Coffee Shop. Since we got there a little early Scott and I decided to go venture around the community and ended up in their orchard (ya know, because it's just too pretty).
It was a beautiful afternoon and the dark clouds were coming in and out, scattering rain around every couple of minutes. The wonderful smell of dirt and rain that I always love was in the air, and the orchards were taking my breathe away.
The area was just too pretty to not take photos in. Growing up I was always surrounded by beautiful orange groves, but since I don't spend much time in East Mesa anymore I don't really get to see them much. I've always loved how pretty they were, though. To have something so green and beautiful survive in our heat and harsh suns is a miracle in itself.
The amazing weather has decided to stick around for a bit, and I've been taking it in as much as I can. All of my favorite coffee shops have been packed, and I've been breaking out the cardigans (even though it's still fairly hot outside). Fall is almost here! I can feel it!
Today I have more schoolwork to attend to, and a meeting later in the afternoon. It seems all I do lately is homework, but at this point in my life I wouldn't have it any other way. I have been mixing it up with, with sweet friend/blogger meet-ups and scouring some of my favorite record stores lately. Today the new Mates of State album comes out and I'm SO excited to give it a good listen!
This sweet guy has been so patient and great with me lately. I'm so happy that he understands how important school is, and always knows how to balance me out when I'm getting burned out on my work (hello froyo dates and Taking Back Sunday singalongs!).
How do you de-stress?
