summer slowdown.

you’re never going to believe this …

it’s august.

the last full month of summer. the month I turn one year older wiser [my ‘golden’ birthday, to be precise]. one month closer to [J] & I’s impending nuptials. the month of my first dress fitting & first bridal shower. that happened fast.

I have been diligently working down my summer bucket list. and I’m scratching quite a few off the list, but I still have work to do.

here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to ..

dined [twice] at malo. neither times al fresco though. oops.

attended + loved zoo brew with [J] + his dad.

went to the farmer’s market [the breakfast burritos aren’t there anymore .. I don’t want to talk about it]. but my mom got the largest bouquet of flowers.

and last weekend, [J] + I FINALLY got our engagement photos taken. the whole experience was amazing. [I cannot wait to share]

happy august!

hope you’ve been busy enjoying summer & crossing stuff of your bucket list. football season fall will be here before we know it.
