I thought I would start my return to blogging with a little re-cap of summer. So, three months in one blog post. Whew.
Okay, let's see.
I celebrated my first mother's day! I want to write a full post on my motherhood soon, so I won't do that here, but it was a really fun day and I felt very loved. Also, Piglet is wearing a full-on chambray outfit here. That just needs to be acknowledged.
I did the flowers for my cousin's wedding, which was so so much fun! If you're in the OKC area, I'll let you hire me :) Thanks to my cousin, mom and aunt for their help!
We took a little weekend trip with Eric's family to Branson, MO. I've talked about Branson before, but if you haven't been before… it's hilarious. And fun. Piglet had a great time with his cousins and we even got a night of roller coaster rides thanks to babysitting grandparents.
OKC got a Top Golf! We are moving up in the world, apparently. We got to go to the opening and enjoyed an awesome free date. I loooooooove free stuff. Also, you can probably tell, but I'm not good at golf.
We also went to Michigan! I have no idea if I have any readers from Northern Michigan, but if you are from there… well, it's so gorgeous! I had no idea. It was such a great trip. My grandma's family had a reunion there, so there were about sixty of us that rented out this gorgeous b&b on Lake Michigan. We also visited Mackinaw Island, which is amazing.
I turned 29! Excuse the weird face in this picture… apparently that is how I felt about it. Actually, that probably deserves a post of its own.
One of my closest friends from college got married. It was so wonderful to see her so happy. Love you, Em.
We took a quick trip to Kansas City for my cousin's wedding and then headed over to Topeka to visit one of my roomie's from college and her husband and little boy.
We spent a lot of time in my uncle's pool this summer. Of course Piglet loved it!
We also took a long weekend trip to Dallas with some friends. We take an annual trip with the same group, but this time everyone had babes so it looked a little different. But it was really fun and wonderful. So thankful for friends in the same walk of life.
So. That was the summer. It was really lovely. It was also a little crazy - we were out of town for a large part of it. Since we moved into a new house in May, we really haven't gotten much done. But, the house is really wonderful (house tour coming soon! promise! maybe!) and I think we'll be here for a long time, so we are okay with taking it slow.
I am going to write a full update on Piglet/Mom life later - I think that deserves its own post. Just know... it's going well :)
Let me know if you have any questions/missed anything! And! THANK YOU to all who emailed, texted and commented while I was away - you made me feel like I OCCASIONALLY write something worth reading and you inspired me to come back to blogging :)
