3 Great Summer Reads

Ahhhh sweet summertime. My favorite activities during the summer mostly revolve around cocktails and reading. With some trips coming up, I’ll be looking for some more great books to take along, but here are some recent reads that are perfect for a summer afternoon.

Tracks: A Woman’s Solo Trek Across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback
Robyn Davidson
Looking for: an adventure
Why I love it: I really enjoy stories of conventional women doing unconventional things. Robyn moved to the wild terrain of the Australian desert setting out to cross the rugged terrain with four camels and one dog.

Fat Girl Walking
Brittany Gibbons
Looking for: Inspiration
Why I love it: You may know Brittany via her blog BrittanyHerself.com, and if you do then you know this book is humorously honest and incredibly inspiring. I poured through this book in two days and couldn’t put it down. 

Big Girl
Kelsey Miller
Looking for: new way of thinking about food
Why I love it: Kelsey Miller is a senior features writer at Refinery29 where she started The Anti Diet Project. In her book she talks in depth about her relationship with food and how she gave up dieting for good.

  • MAN. This past month has been pretty dreamy. Visiting friends and family back east and then them visiting me here in Colorado…It’s been a pretty amazing summer so far. Can’t complain.

Time to get busy and back to work, but I’ll still be posting photos from the hikes, camps, and adventures because it’s good to have a balance of both life and work, not just online but offline too.

  • Stopped at Steam before dropping on @danielle_conyers at the airport. Spicy chai tea lattes can soothe the soul when one of your favorite people leaves.

  • Camp food is the best. My speciality is cooking breakfast. So you make me burgers and I’ll make you scramble. Deal?
