My Life, Recently

{weekend spent at the lake house. divine.}

{deliciously sweet wine from a local winery}

{birthday cake made entirely from scratch by my love's wonderful mama}

{an improvised version of birthday cake}

{thai food never disappoints}

{dining al fresco before temperatures hit the 100s}

{avocado popsicles. seriously delicious. but don't take my word for it}

{wedding dress shopping for my best friend}

{being a tourist in my own city}

{daily reminder of the important things in life}

Summer is going by so quickly. In just a few short weeks, fall semester will start and with it, a whirlwind of papers, research and the usual mayhem. Though I know I'll miss these lazy days, I can't wait for fall and, truth be told, for {slightly} colder weather.

{I know I promised a giveaway this week....hold tight, it is coming Friday!}

That looks like a wonderful life :-)

With our cloudy and rainy weather right now I'm not nearly ready for autumn. But spring arrived very early this year so I cannot really complain. I guess I'm just weather spoiled.

Thank you for the lovely comment.
I'm never ashamed to be a tourist in my own city, its the best way to find what brings others there and why they stay :)And often we forget about the "tourist" attractions when they're actually really fun! haha
