The Glorious Days of Summer

As a kid I was determined to suck as much fun out of my summer days as possible. As an adult, the parameters of summer aren’t as clearly defined but the sentiments are still the same – have fun! For me, summer fun means spending as much time as possible soaking up the beautiful summer sun outdoors! Here are some of my favorites from this summer.

Busy Busy Busy

I am so so so sorry for the lack of posts last week. I had so many awesome things planned, I had pictures taken, but I had small amounts of computer time…. Our internet is slow slow slow…… So, when I have a teeny amount of time to write using the computer my fellow blogger boyfriend and I share, of course the internet goes haywire. Instead of worrying about it I jumped into all kinds of other activities…..

1. Running

2. Spending time outside

3. Visiting my favorite place in the world (my family cabin)

4. Grilling delicious food

5. Most importantly, spending time with friends

Check back for the full stories throughout the week!
