Simple Pleasures

The summer heat has been pretty mild, but it looks like temperatures will be heating up this weekend. Since I'll be spending at least part of it by the coast, it should be pretty pleasant outside.

I've only been to Carmel once or twice, but the last time I went, I had a blast. I'm looking forward to walking around town with my seester, picking up a coffee, perusing the shops, and maybe making it down to the actual beach this time around.

I love HMB on so many different levels and it definitely holds a special place in my heart. When my parents looked at buying a house there way back when, I was giddy with excitement at the prospect of being within walking distance to the beach. I wish they would have done it, but I'll just have to settle for driving past that darn house every time I make it into town. I'm considering taking a drive out there Sunday morning, but it all depends on how tired I am from the Carmel excursion. It's been a while, but I could definitely go for a mocha at Half Moon Bay Coffee Co. and then a stroll along the beach since it's likely I won't make it to the sand and water in Carmel. We'll see how it all goes.

Giving to Worthy Causes

I try to donate as often as I can to causes that are close to my heart. I also try to contribute whenever I see a friend working toward reaching a goal. When I was living alone it was difficult to donate as much or as frequently as I would have liked, but now that I'm back at home saving more money, I know I'll be able to give a little more than I would have in the past few years. Which is why I literally just helped my friend Tom get a little closer to his goal. There's still time to donate, so if you can, please do. You can give here.
