June, Going So Soon?

Alright friends, I think you can tell by the lack of posts lately that June has been a really hectic month.  How is it over already?  I didn’t get any of the posts up I wanted to.  I only read one book!

The good thing is, I took a lot of lovely photos that I’ll share with you now.

I do have a backlog list of posts and videos that I promise will be coming your way soon!  For now, enjoy your Fourth of July holidays!

Japan In Photos

As promised, I’m sharing some of my favorite photos from our recent trip to Japan.  (Yes we’ve been home for over a month, so what?)  Why now?  Because my vlog playlist is finally finished– you can relive my whole trip with me! If you can believe it, I managed to take more photos than video…

Get ready for a photo-heavy post!

Februarygrams

I couldn’t be more excited to get out of February and launch into March!  I’ve got a biiiig trip coming up and I’ve been counting down the days!  Let’s revisit some of the great things that happened in February, though.

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!
