Month in Review: July

In this case the last Saturday of the month somehow turned into the first Saturday Sunday of the new month, ha! August came TOO quickly - how do we only have one month of summer left?!

A couple glimpses of some of my favorite memories of the past month…

Doesn't every July have much to do with the Fourth of July?! We decorated for holiday, celebrated with a BBQ, spent the holiday at the lake and had one of my best gal's visit.

We celebrated one year since our house was finished being built and when we started the move in process.

I also shared a little peek into our house including some of our favorite places and things.  You can find it: here

Lots of relaxing, feet up, enjoying the deck and sipping cocktails - isn't that what summer nights are for?!

We had a little long weekend getaway to Boston (recaps here & here) with my family and loved the city including the slightly cooler (and breezier temperatures).

One of the most "summer" activities - we had plenty of trips down to the ballpark to see the Phillies, enjoy some ballpark food as well as a cold beer.

A weekend trip down to DC to see some of our best friends… 

We did dinners on the deck any and every night that we could.  I will so miss these when the winter hits and plan to continue as far into fall as I can.

Another one of our best friends stopped by on her way home and was able to enjoy a night out at Dining Under the Stars with us. 

We finished off the month with a weekend trip to the lake with perfect weather, lots of dock time and a great family happy hour on the porch.

These two pups own the lake - they could not love swimming more.  Little miss has adjusted to the water, doesn't need her life jacket and is such a water lover.

Just because it's too cute not to re-share and include…
