I found a piece of driftwood last summer while I was on a weekend trip to the American river. We walked down a steep hill to get to the river, then walked along big rocks on an adventure upstream. Well, we didn’t get too far on our adventure because let’s be honest, I am a wimp. I am truly pathetic when it comes to any activity that involves possibly getting hurt. When a hill gets too steep, I’d rather sit and slide down than attempt to walk and possibly fall. Let’s just say I don’t quite live on the edge. But, the scary upstream walk was totally worth it once I found this awesome piece of driftwood. I grabbed it and some other smaller pieces of wood and knew I would find some use for it, even though it happened to be a whole year later.
Let’s talk about summer toes for a little bit. I have this odd personal pet peeve that doesn’t allow me to wear sandals if my toes aren’t painted. I even have a hard time going to yoga without painted toes, but I managed to get over that since it’s hard to stay motivated to upkeep them in the winter. Normally, by this time of the year, my toes would already be nicely pedicured. But, the cold San Francisco summer hasn’t given me the opportunity to wear sandals.
