Life Lately: Summer Home and Traveling Adventures

the most amazing doughnut ever from a new coffee shop in town//my niece's end of the year concert - she is growing up so fast: her 10th birthday is today! Happy Birthday, hon! Love you!//aunt and niece dresses//play-doh night with a gal from the office who let me crash with her over graduation - best. thing. ever.//my mom got me shoo-fly pie - yum!//the most adorable high school interns ever//selfies on a Sunday morning/vintage pillowcases//a card from my cousin - can you guess what it says on the inside? Hint: 500 Days of Summer// oh - I randomly chopped seven inches of hair off. What do you think?//sunset on the Fox River in Illinois//mini-golf//this little guy scared the crap out of me when he showed up in front of my cabin door in Iowa - he just wanted to get out of the rain//T-dogg and the Diesels heading back to Illinois from Iowa
