2016 Sweet Summertime.

I'm excited for all things fall, just like every other girl in the world. The smells, weather, foods, colors, clothes, decor, etc. I love it all. However, I might be the only person who actually hates pumpkin and loves daylight savings time. Something about the early darkness and chill in the air is just cozy to me.

I've also been reminiscing about how amazing these last few months have been. Summer of 2016 was oh so good to us. As I was thinking back, I decided I needed to document all of the special things we did, trips we took, family we loved on, chapters we closed and the adventures we set out on. 

-My 30th in Kansas City. A celebration my husband planned & all of our loved ones attended
-A special visit from our favorite twins, our sweet Florida family
-We sold our first home after 7 years of memories made there
-Moved into our first ever apartment while we house shop, picked downtown Tulsa and it's been a blast
-Our baby girl turned 10. Can't believe it's been 9 years since we rescued her
-Spent a long weekend in Denver with Kim, such a beautiful treat

-Went to a Hillsong concert in OKC with Kristal, it really was life changing
-Had the enormous blessing of sharing my testimony on Dashing Dish
-Celebrated the 30th birthday of my bff/SIL with some of my favorite people
-Celebrated 8 years of marriage with my best friend at a delicious place downtown called Bull in the Alley
-Spent a week in Rodanthe, NC on the beach with 20+ family members. It was the best trip ever
-Developed a new love for reading, this has been my fave read this year so far

Cheers to fall and new chapters to come XO


  1. Sounds like you had a fabulous summer!!! Anytime I hear Rodanthe, I think of the Nicholas Sparks book. One True Loves was one of my favorite reads so far this year too!!! Good luck with the house hunt and enjoy your downtown spot in the meantime!

  2. This was such a great way to look back at your summer-- it definitely looks like you had some wonderful times. So exciting to have sold your house, so many great travel adventures, and time spent with family & friends. I still haven't read One True Loves yet, but I'm even more excited to read it now!

  3. oh congrats on selling your house! we are about to embark on that terrifying journey ourselves lol. we are planning on living with my MIL in the 'in between' though, so wish us luck ;)
    i LOVED one true loves. so good!

  4. You had a full summer and so many fun things to celebrate! Our trip to Denver was such a blessing to me. Looking forward to seeing you at Christmas!

  5. What an awesome recap of the summer! I hate I missed you when you were in NC, but I'm glad you had a blast! xx, I'm Fixin' To
