Happy lat Friday of May! This month was actually the perfect length. I still can’t believe I was still in school at the beginning of the month and now I’m home! But that also means that my absolute favorite month is starting on Monday! Which is a double yay since I love when a Month starts on a Monday! The numbers make sense then! June 1st – Monday, the first day of the week! But really, June means Summer and a beautiful time to live and love! Plus two birthdays (mine on the 6th and Strength and Sunshine’s on the 27th!). I think I’m more excited for my blog’s second birthday than my own, haha! My mom’s birthday was yesterday too! Lots of celebrating to be had!
Even if you don’t have any birthdays or big celebrations in the summer, the summer really is a time to reset and reevaluate life! Check in with your goals, motivations, change things up, rest AND energize the body, set new goals, and find new ways to bring some happiness and extra sunshine into your life! I know that’s exactly what I hope to do. Now that I’ve really rested these last 3 weeks at home, I’m ready to really begin the summer and live each say to the fullest! Who’s with me?
Cheers to the weekend and now catch up with anything you might have missed with the Friday Finisher! XOXO

So good! Read these when you need that boost to push away!
If you want to find more time to LIVE, you have to LOVE life!

I agree. Mental strength accounts for at least 90%.

Little tips from one of the greatest running bloggers!
This wouldn’t be more well said and true!
That’s because yoga= = awesome!
I’m still cautious with a few of these. Nothing’s definite.
Or, just go with this one 😉
I loved mine! Until I broke it on Monday :/
Well this is a step in the right direction!
They just want their GMOs and deception. They want their own rules.

Blogging, Social Media, Tech & Photography:
Omg! A shoe! Yes!
If you can write posts with vulnerability and let your unique self shine, I will be a devoted reader.
In life and online. This is me and it needs to be fixed. (You may be having this problem literally right now too…)
I just have to say, stop writing cheap “e-books”, they don’t do well and no one would buy what they can already find online 😛 Make a real book if anything!
The quality over quantity thing is real!
I am the worst. Like the first day of classes and we have to introduce ourselves. Forget it. I will not remember your name.
More reasons why NJ is pretty awesome 😉

Quinoa-Crusted Salmon Salad. Squealing with joy over here!
Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Lentils, Dates, and Tahini Dressing. Anything with tahini!
N’Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl. For when my tummy can’t handle more oats!
Tart Cherry Glazed Salmon. O my goodness! The salmon loves keeps on coming!
Blueberry Muffin For One. This looks like the most delicious muffin ever! I was always a blueberry muffin kid!
Wild Rice & Rocket Salad with Chai Soaked Raisins. This would be a flavor explosion in the mouth!
Tahini Coconut Orange Shake. Again with the tahini! This would get me to make a smoothie!
Vegan Fluffernutter Sandwich. This is what I’d all adult-childhood dreams!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ I started reading my first fiction, for pleasure reading book in like a year! I picked up The Stolen Ones by Owen Laukkanen. Just the type of novel I love <3
+ I’ve been loving my night/dinner routine lately. I eat dinner while watching Braking Bad (I’m almost done with season 5), and while also finish up blog/social media work. Total “multi-tasking” badness, but I find it pretty calming and blogging/social media is easier/less boring to do!
So tell me:
+ What are you currently reading or have recently read?
+ Any summer birthdays? Celebrations? Even vacations maybe? I have never taken a summer vacation, haha!
