hi! just checking in over here. this past month has passed by in a hazy blur. i've spent the last four weeks on the road. it was unexpected and just what i needed. i made it home a few days ago and in between meetings and birthday celebrations there is this wedding that i am planning. and in forty-two days it will all be over. so for now, i am embracing the chaos and anticipating that saturday afternoon where i will become a mrs. || this post was inspired by my sweet friend, amanda over at beetle & fig


we're about to head out on a three week trip visiting employees across the southeast. but first, we're spending a few days with family in one of our favorite places, hilton head island. this week has consisted of bike rides, watching the sunrise on an empty beach, push pops, sandal tans, and full days soaking up the sun. 


summer is... long walks and good conversation
summer is... dinner dates and colorful walls
summer is... cocktail experiments and paper straws 
summer is... holiday firsts and matching attire
summer is... a warm breeze and mornings spent by the river
summer is... searching for flowers and sweaty top knots 
summer is... bikes ride before and after supper
summer is... paletas at any time of day

a few of my favorite moments from summer thus far and what this season has meant for me.
