Thinking about our move to California--it's coming up so soon! I'm excited about our cross-country road trip and getting settled in the Bay Area, but I'm also really sad to be leaving so many wonderful friends and our family on the East Coast.

Listening to Regina Spektor's new song so much. I can't wait for the full album!

Watching the Olympics! Swimming and gymnastics are my favorite. I love it all so much. Also re-watching Parks and Rec from the beginning; and do you guys remember The Secret Life of the American Teenager? It's cringeworthy but I can't stop. The whole thing is like a really bad, super cheesy PSA to teenagers everywhere about not having sex until you're married. 

Drinking iced coffee, Spindrift soda water (I love the cucumber and the watermelon ones the most), and Lenny Boy kombucha (the rose was always my favorite but now I'm all about the dry hop).

Reading my that weird? My publisher sent me some author copies so I've been flipping through and re-reading all the headnotes and recipes I wrote this spring. It was such a crazy experience, and I can't believe my book will be in stores so soon. Other books I have my eye on: It's Okay To Laugh (Crying Is Cool Too) and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Looking forward to spending the next week in California! I'm flying out this afternoon and Rob and I are doing some house hunting in the Bay Area through the weekend before heading to the city for a few days, then we're both coming home to Charlotte next weekend. I'm really excited to get out there and do some exploring! Feel free to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (username is flynnmd)! I love Snapchat especially when I'm traveling.
