I had this freak out the other day where I felt like summer was basically over and I hadn’t really done anything “summery.” I mean I hadn’t even put on a bathing suit and it was already July. Between moving and going back and forth to Chicago…my free days just didn’t exist. So to tame this panic I decided to live summer up as much as humanly possible before the gloriousness of fall sets in. (**side note…I cannot WAIT to see what our house/street is like in fall. There are so many trees I have no doubt it is going to be pure magic.**) BUT…as excited as I am about all things pumpkin spice, I just wasn’t ready for summer to be over. So as I went back through all the photos from my life over the past few months…I realized I’ve been soaking up summer after all. And let me tell you…there is truly nothing better than summer nights in Indy. Whether it’s eating dinner out on our patio or sitting on my brother’s deck listening to the girls play. It’s this sense of nostalgia and contentness that is unparalleled.
So here’s a little look at my life lately…
Pictures of friends…aka my friend wall. | All ready for race day. | All the <3’s
Fun times at the Race party. My friend from Chicago (Lola) visited and it was super fun. 🙂
Race day shenanigans.
She loves her Cap. | Concert selfies. | Family dinner at the ‘rents.
My annual trip to Scituate. Always good for the soul.
Power outage = impromptu sleepover. Jammies on point. | And just like that she’s 4.
A little lake getaway. So much fun.
Had the family over for dinner. One of my favorite parts of living in Indy. | My first Beginner Photo Class! | Me and the hubs at Kenny!
Date night downtown at the best rooftop restaurant. | Our view. | Lazy mornings.
My little 4th of July party that was just what the doctor ordered.
We love Snapchat selfies. | Another great thing about Indiana…tomatoes. | Symphony on the Prairie.
Gary sprayed Round-up on our brand new bushes. I still can’t talk about it. | Those Indy sunsets. | Second Beginner Photo Class!
Just layin’ around. | A little mani fun. | Weiner roast at Gary’s aunt’s house.
A little mid week getaway to California. Seriously so much fun. With a tiny bit of worked squeezed in.
We got champagne at check-in! My kind of hotel!
My first Sake experience. Fun times. | Soaking up some rays before Sid left for the airport.
Veggies and dip on crack. | Laguna Beach does not suck. | I was way too excited about this.
I spent a few days with my friend, Tami. It was the best.
Pool party at Gary’s cousin’s house (aka the Oasis). Capped off by another killer Indiana sunset.
Celebrating our “engagement-versary”.
Summer nights. The best kind.
Tenderloin as big as your head. Only in Indiana. | More friends visiting! | Dierks did not disappoint.
State fair fun! I will never admit all of the things I consumed that night. Hint…it was fried. All of it.
How I manage to get anything done. Coffee. | Our tree fell down. Which gave Gary an excuse to buy a chainsaw. I don’t think he minds. | This may not look exciting…but when we bought our house there were no toilet paper holders or towel racks. So I FINALLY bit the bullet and bought some and it’s just a really exciting thing around here.
Spaghetti night at Lala’s which led to the inaugural use of our bathtub. They were a fan of the jets.
A little champagne lunch with Indy friend. | I still can’t believe this was real. This would be like me showing up to shoot a wedding with no camera. UNACCEPTABLE! | Drove home in a killer storm. Totally thought I was going to get sucked up by a tornado.
I feel like I have sweat more in the last month than in my entire life. It has been SO hot and I have been so sweaty. 🙁 | New watch! | On our way to Kentucky. This was Gary’s “drive faster” face.
Kentucky with my loves. Such a fun weekend.
Counting Crows with my High School besties. The night may or may not have ended with us watching showchoir videos until 3am. Sorry not sorry.
