Please speed up so that my quality of life can increase once again. I love when I can do this
I do not really enjoy reading inside (even though I do love reading in my tub or next to my fireplace) as much as I do reading outside in parks, in pools, at the beach, on a boat. I feel at peace. I feel a sense of bliss. I NEED THIS AGAIN. Please skip past winter and then the weird thawing of Pennsylvania spring until it becomes blooming and sunny and wonderful.
I’ve told you my favorite places to read before and you know that I just love reading outside. When it’s nice out…I’m reading outside. I actually think I get more reading done because there is NOTHING I’d rather do than get outside and bring a book with me. I think that’s why I find myself reading more in the summer than any other season — which is strange because you’d think I’d do more reading when I’m hibernating from the cold rather than when I’m super busy in the summer. I guess I just take every moment I can to sneak outside — especially at work…my whole lunch hour is spent at the park reading in the summer.
It’s also funny because honestly some of the moments that I cherish the most are times I was reading outside. They are these vivid memories where I can feel the sun on my back, the wind blowing lightly through my hair and just falling into a book. I think of the quiet moments reading in my backyard (the first picture is one of those times), reading in Santa Monica on vacation in a park before we went to the airport (the second picture) or reading while in a park in Paris. I cannot wait to wander the world and read in memorable places.
Where are your favorite places to read? Are you more of an outdoor reader or indoor reader? Any memorable places that you’ve read?
