Hello to my favorite month of June!

Each month, I love sharing a recap of the last month on both a personal and professional note here on the blog. It’s fun to reflect back on the past month (I often find myself smiling as I write these posts!) and share those notes here on the blog.

Here are some highlights from our month of May:

  • Starting the month off by celebrating Georgie’s birthday
  • Spending an evening with our nephews before their new baby brother arrived later in the month!
  • Planting our garden – we’re so excited about all the tomatoes, cucs, zucchinis, peppers, herbs, and so much more that’s growing!
  • Making many trips to the local greenhouses *see above, lol!
  • Going to a local favorite, Flight 102, for an evening out with my sister
  • Enjoying a Mother’s Day well spent with family
  • Celebrating my mom’s birthday the best way we know how – by baking & surprising her with her favorite ooey gooey butter cake!
  • Having a girls day and taking a trip to IKEA with my bestie, Autumn
  • Documenting two wedding days with both photo & video
  • Going to the Shelby Spring Fling in Brown County, Indiana with my mom, dad, and Kyle – my parents have taken me since I was a kid and this trip was hopefully the first Shelby Spring Fling of many in the future for Kyle!
  • Spending lots of time at the studio photographing family sessions
  • Hosting our monthly coworking date & first ever headshot exchange with our community of local small business owners, the Kankakee County Creatives!
  • Celebrating the end of the school year with our niece, Sofia
  • Doing my first few bike bootcamps on the Peloton!
  • Meeting our newest nephew – now we’re Auntie Kara and Uncle Kyle x5 and love that so much!
  • Having our first pool day of the summer on Memorial Day
  • Rounding out the month of May with a couple of busy work days before Kyle and I take a few days off for weekend getaways!

Looking ahead, June brings our wedding anniversary and the start of summer, so how I could I not love this month?! Sending my love for a wonderful month of June for you and yours. Until next month!
