August Rush

New desktop background I created

Toffee latte and fruit tart... delicious

Outside of Alta: you can see my parked bike kind of

Ok, so today's post title is ripping off the movie August Rush, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the film.

It's the middle of August already... Can you believe it? With work being so busy and friends and family being able to come visit, the past couple months have flown right by. Don't get me wrong, I love when life is full of fun events, socializing, and working hard, but this past Sunday I made sure to stop the rush and have a little date... With myself.

After taking Cortney and Elise to the airport (which was a bit depressing), I arrived home to an empty house. I wanted to take a nap, but decided I would be happier if I used the time to meander around the penninsula. I road my bike to church listening to my Radiohead Pandora station. Church felt great for my soul and spirit, I don't know why I stay away from churh most weekends. Afterwards, I took a little bike ride to Alta, this amazing coffee shop. Ordered myself a little (ok, BIG) treat, and then sat on a bench and watched the sun go down behind the bay.

How do you unwind and take a break? Do you have a special escape?
