summer rewind.

Once upon a time, the month of June flew right by me. Lots of fun was had
And little time was left for blogging. 
I figure what better way to celebrate the month of August than with a look back 
at the beginning of summer?


The husband finished up his residency program
and we hosted an after party at our house.
resident graduates!

Residents, attendings, family and friends
enjoying food & cocktails inside and outside. 
Beer pong in the garage. 
Guests at the house until 3am.
It was a good party.


My family came up for a visit 
and we had a BBQ, with both of our families
where we made the big announcement.
We framed our ultrasound photo and gave it to our dads as an early Father's Day gift :)
I swear Mocha has gotten so much bigger since this photo. She is growing like a weed.

hammock lights + fire pit + smores
fireworks were a hit


Then, we celebrated a year of marriage
with a romantic dinner at The Castle Hill

Can we go back and do it again?
