Blueberries & Summer Happenings

8/08/2014

Hello readers, if there are any left out there! Bueller? Mom?

Apologies for the radio silence on the blog, I have been enjoying this beautiful weather and working up a storm. I hope everyone is having a festive summer! Can you believe it is August already?? So crazy.

Since my last post we have had a pretty eventful summer. So far we have visited a blueberry orchard and picked 2 full gallons of berries, bought our very first condo, painted every room (no more pea green!), unpacked and slowly super slowly started to decorate, enjoyed many afternoons on our new balcony (It's Coco's new favorite thing), enjoyed a new morning walk routine, explored our new neighborhood, hit up the farmer's markets, met THE CUTEST baby goat (and didn't have a camera, booo.), visited family, celebrated the marriage of our two awesome friends, explored antique shops, found a new smoothie cafe and a natural foods store, DIY'd this, this, and this, designed some super secret + super gorgeous stuff for Pretty Fluffy, and 'favorited' a million things on etsy.

It's been fun, yet laid back, which is great mix for me! We still want to squeeze in a few more things before fall arrives. And we will be wrapping up the end of Summer with a trip to San Francisco + Capitola to celebrate my best friend Rachael's wedding. I cannot wait, it is going to be such a blast to reunite with my long lost DAAP girls! 

We booked a cute little cabin on a horse ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains for the wedding, and then we will be exploring SF with our friend Amanda later that weekend. I have never been to CA so I am super excited about all of the above. It overlaps Tanner's birthday and our wedding anniversary, so it will an all encompassing celebration. 

I have photographed my way through most of summer, and I love being able to look back to remember all the pretty moments. Here are some of my favorite snippets so far. Also, can I just throw it out there to the universe now... I totally want grow some fruit trees and adopt baby goat named Francis for Bean to play with. Just throwing it out there!





Sooo.... pure berry heaven! We (including Coco) ate so many of these, it's a miracle we aren't all blue. I highly recommend visiting your local 'pick your own' farm if you have one near by. It was so much fun and a very calming experience. Though I have to admit, filling 2 full gallons took way longer than I thought it would. You'll love it though, I promise!


Anddd... we finally got a new sofa! I love it so much, and it feels so clean on our 'super light' gray walls. Yes, I actually strayed from white walls this time. Well, barely. 

And we can end the post with Bean contemplating the beauty of life. 

What have you been up to this summer?? We'd love to hear from you!

  1. I had many plans this summer, but it's going so fast and I haven't done much and it's almost over! So sad. I would love to go to one of those farms. Did you go to any great ones while you lived in Ohio? I'm sure there must be one close by me since I live in the middle of nowhere.

    3. That's so funny, we just moved back home to Cincinnati :)

      There are lots of them in the area from what I see on the website. We haven't had a chance to visit any yet though. Their harvest/pumpkin links look exciting!
