I don’t know about you, but I always feel like summer has completely slipped away by the time Labor Day weekend rolls around… And this year is no exception. Especially since we’ve been having fall-like weather already! So, before I lean in and embrace the almost fall season, I want to share my August recap blog!
The month started with a trip to a local gem – Locavore Farm – with our sweet friends, Joe and Michaela. We enjoyed a Thursday night dinner on the farm, and it was truly a lovely evening. Then the first weekend of August brought a garage sale, pool day, and celebrating my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary! My sister and I – along with our husbands – planned a little anniversary party for my parents with their closest friends and family before they spent a week away on vacation. It was the perfect afternoon celebrating their 40 married years!
The first full week of the month brought an anniversary session with one of my 2018 couples, serving at the Global Leadership Summit at our church, and a dinner/drinks date with my gal pals at Launch Your Daydream. The girls were in Chicago visiting so you better bet we met up! And then it was time to celebrate my niece Sofia’s first birthday. Girlfriend had the best birthday spent at the zoo followed by the very best party with lots of cake AND ice cream sundaes the next day.
After the birthday fun wrapped up, Kyle and I drove up to the Michigan City and New Buffalo area for a little getaway. It was so good to spend a night away – exploring breweries, good eats, a little shopping, and the beach. We loved our little trip!
Then, it was onto another week. The second full week of the month brought bride consults, leading our local TuesdaysTogether chapter gathering, mentoring a photographer, starting a beta group for website copy, and photographing a gorgeous cathedral in a cornfield wedding day – I promise you’ll get it when you see the blog post! The week was full, that’s for sure!
The third weekend of the month brought more mentoring sessions, an engagement session, and best yet… Our second annual college friends weekend! This year, our college friend group spent a weekend in Alton, Illinois together, and it was a blast. It’s crazy how life and jobs and houses and everything in between have happened since we were all in school together. But ya know what? When we gather together, it’s like there hasn’t been any time between!
We rounded out the month with a couple more couples sessions, more mentoring, and finally a Labor Day weekend wedding day.
The month of August was good to us – cheers to September and the start of fall!
