summer full speed ahead.

June is shaping up to be a very busy month.
Friday the husband graduates from his residency program.
Goodbye hospital, goodbye overnight call.
Hello private practice! 
This has been eleven years in the making, six of which I've happily been a part of...
so it's kind of a big deal.
I'm so proud of the hubs :)

We are hosting the resident's after graduation party at our house.
At first I was skeptical, because usually these types of things are at a bar or restaurant,
but now I'm looking forward to it.
It will be catered so no need to worry about food or drinks
and it has given us the boost we needed to get some things done around the house.
We have been busy prepping the yard with some fun lights and a fire pit.

 There is now a home made fire pit back behind the hammock!
Next week, my family is coming up for a few days. 
It will be the first time everyone is here, together. 
We have a cookout planned, a celebration dinner in Newport
 {celebrating a graduation, a birthday, Father's Day, and some anniversaries!}
and hopefully a sailboat ride, if the weather cooperates!

Then comes our one year anniversary.
I can't even believe it's been a whole year.
The wedding literally feels like it was yesterday.
This year has been amazing. and FAST!

The following weekend we'll be heading to Atlantic City
for a three day music festival

I'm getting tired just thinking about all of this.
My heart is full and I cannot wait for the goodness that is to come!
