Every year our university has an event outside on the lawn with an orchestra. The call it "Symphony Under The Stars" and we've been almost every year since we've moved to the area together. It's a nice little event that we've made a tradition of going to together.
It's always a lovely time, sitting on the grass listening to good music. It's really relaxing and somewhat therapeutic to take a time-out to just sit, listen, and enjoy. With the wedding and all of the festivities last week, there are few chances to sit, listen, and enjoy.
As my week unfolds into me getting back into a routine, I'm finding I am just as busy as before, except with new things.
One thing I wanted to accomplish this summer was to get back into the habit of reading on a daily basis. And by reading, I don't mean blogs, textbooks, or magazines, I mean some classic novels. There are tons of books I am in the middle of including Game of Thrones and Girl Who Played With Fire. Yesterday I started reading The Great Gatsby because it's a classic I never tackled. I adore the 20's so I am really surprised I never picked it up in high school. My plan is to read all 180 pages of it before Sunday when we plan to see it. I think it is definitely do-able at the rate I am going.
I promise I will share some photos with you soon! If you're on Instagram, you're welcome to check out our hash tag full of images taken by our friends and family, #danielleandsteven. My photographer gave me a disk of some images before the night was over. I will share those with you soon enough!
