Hokusai

Goodbye July

Holy freaking cannoli, I cannot believe that July is gone.  I can’t handle anything about this summer or how little of it I’ve gotten to relax through.  Enjoying and making the most out of this summer means I’m very, very tired, but I think these little things were worth it:

[1] I’ve spent every single July weekend in Rhode Island and you can watch them all here. [2] I’ve discovered my new favorite ice cream place in Charlestown, RI. [3] And I’ve eaten a lot of ice cream in general. [4] I’ve been playing with make-up, despite the heat. [5] I enjoyed a beautiful Boston sunset over the Charles. [6] I checked out Hokusai at the MFA and absolutely fell in love. [7] My hair started cooperating, miraculously. [8] I’ve found moments of peace on hectic days. [9] And I’ve eaten so much delicious seafood!

I’m thankful we still have one summer month left.  Tell me some of your favorite July memories!

Hokusai

If you follow me on instagram or watch my vlogs, you know I went to check out the Hokusai exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts last week.  I was glad I found time to see it, as I knew I’d like it… I just had no idea how much!  This has been my favorite collection since Chihuly a couple of summers ago, reminding me how much I need the MFA in my life!

You might know Hokusai from the Great Wave:

Red might have tried to sell this to you in Animal Crossing New Leaf.

Hokusai closes at the MFA Boston on August 9, so I highly recommend you see it before it’s gone!  A collection of works by pupils of Hokusai is coming at the end of August, and I cannot wait!  I took a million pictures, but I’ll share a few more with you here. (more…)
