Month Roundup: June & July

Well, I certainly caught "summer fever" and haven't done a month update since May! That feels like forever ago so today I'm going to try to play a little catchup and get back on track with a little glimpse into each June and July...

I shared my summer bucket list as we kicked off the season and we also got our deck setup for our first BBQ and redid our landscaping to get summer ready.  We started the season of al fresco dining with an impromptu double date with my parents, playing some tennis and getting to a Phillies game.  June also brought the start of Dining Under the Stars - one of our summer favorites.  New this year - we finally setup our lower patio area (and have been loving it)!  Mexican night is our favorite to host  and we attended one of our favorite charity events of the year, Tyler at Twilight.  We had the entire family together - a rare occurrence - to bring back an old tradition for "family weekend at the lake."  Grill nights at home started to become a favorite.

We spent the first days of July enjoying our annual trip to southern California.  We celebrated a belated Father's Day and took in a Phillies game, relaxing on the deck and some more DUTS nights.  Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays and we had the best time celebrating.  Some of the best nights are when out of town friends pop in just for the night to spend some time.  A great weekend at the lake was a summer highlight.

Have a great rest of the weekend! xx


  1. Sounds like you've been having a super fun summer so far enjoying lots of festivities with family and friends. Your entertaining food spreads always look delicious and Stella is such a cutie!

  2. You've had such a fun filled summer, it's easy to see how you didn't have time to write a monthly recap! I still love that y'all had the whole family at the lake house for one last hurrah, and I'm also still really jealous that you met LVP when you were in LA!
