Hi friends, welcome back! Looking back, July felt like the quickest and longest month, and now it’s almost August! July was an extremely fun, busy month for me! I started the month on vacation with Jon in Nantucket, then two weeks later I flew out to Scottsdale for a bachelorette party, and then we’re ending the month in Michigan. I love travelling so much, but I will admit I’m exhausted! August is looking like another busy month for us, but a good kind of busy!
On to my post 🙂 I’ve been linking up with my first and favorite blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions:
What I’m eating: I scrolled through my last month of pictures and I’ve been eating lots of sugar!! Don’t tell my dentist ha!
What I’m reminiscing about: spending my birthday last year in Lake Placid! Jon and I had a blast hiking and exploring the beauty of upstate NY and it easily became one of our favorite places.
What I’m loving: travelling again! It seems so crazy to me that I went from not flying for over a year to visiting Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Nantucket, and Scottsdale. The last two months sure have been a whirlwind of making up for lost time!
What I’m Up to: trying to update my wardrobe, but I don’t love shopping so it’s a process 🙂
What I’m working on: writing my Yosemite blog posts! I’m struggling because Yosemite is such a special and jaw-dropping place, so I just want to do it justice. I am also having a hard time narrowing down all the pictures I took 🙂
What I’m excited about: Fall! I’m so excited to decorate my apartment and watch some great college football. I’ve already scoped out the new Pottery Barn Halloween décor and it’s taking a lot of self control to resist putting out my decor!
What I’m watching/reading: I finished reading American Dirt and I’d highly recommend everyone read it! It’s one of those books that will stick with you forever and really makes you see things differently. I’m now reading The Things We Cannot Say and am enjoying it so far. We are watching Kim’s Convenience and Virgin River along with the Olympics now. I LOVE watching the Olympics, especially gymnastics, swimming, track, and volleyball.
My favorite blog post of the month: Fourth of July in Nantucket – Part Two – still dreaming about these houses and hydrangeas
What I’m doing this weekend: heading to Michigan for Jon’s families annual golf outing and to celebrate my birthday Monday! I haven’t played in a few years so hopefully I do ok, luckily, it’s a scramble and just for fun 🙂
What I’m looking forward to next month: my best friend’s wedding!!
Thanks for reading! What are you looking forward to in August?
