Goodbye Summer!

Last Saturday marked the official end of summer!  While I am excited for Fall and what the new season will bring, I am also a bit bummed for summer to be ending.  This summer has brought about such a change in my life, and I am grateful for all of the new experiences and adventures.

Here is a recap of summer 2013


We kicked off summer with a trip to the Texas coast with a great group of friends!  There was clearly no drinking involved ;)

We learned that we would be relocating from Texas to Southern California! 

Trip to So Cal to celebrate my 30th birthday and find a place to call home!  What a great weekend this was!

The next few weeks was spent preparing for the move, and spending as much time possible with family and friends.  These are the lovely faces I miss most from Texas! If my brother was not so anti-camera he would be in here too!

We took a 1,350 mile road trip to our new home!  This was our view for 20+ hours, my sweet boys were angels on the trip!  When we finally drove into LA Charlie was mesmerized by all of the traffic!

5 year wedding anniversary!  Our anniversary was the day after we moved, so needless to say, it was very low-key! 

The last part of our summer has been spent settling in to So Cal!


This summer has been full of big changes for my little family.  I can't imagine a better place to start my 30th year of life and my 5th year of marriage than exactly where we are now!

Now, bring on Fall! I'm looking forward to: chilly days, warm drinks, leggings, cozy sweaters, Halloween, all things pumpkin, apple pie, boots, Thanksgiving, and last but not least my sweet Mom will be visiting!

I'd love to hear about your favorite summer memories, and what you are looking forward to this Fall! Leave a comment or send me an email at
