Summer of Nicole

A few weeks ago I came to the realization that I have no stress. I used to say that the people who claimed they didn't have any stress were liars. Surely they were in denial because nobody is stress free! Well my friends, I'm in uncharted territory because I've become the person who is stress-less. Unbelievable, right?

Today I went out in my kayak. Since the weather has been so goofy this year I've only gotten to go a handful of times but today was the best. The sun was shining bright, it was 80 degrees and breezy - just the perfect day.
I paddled around for a little over two hours. Only deciding to throw in the towel when the wind picked up and a kid on a jet ski started hauling ass on the lake. Sometimes I wonder how easy I am to see on the water (even though my kayak is bright red) and I didn't want to chance it. When I got off the water I had that great summer time feeling - your skin is moist with sunscreen and starting to freckle. Your hair is wild from the wind and the breeze from the car window feels incredible. It is finally summer and I love it.
