An ode to summer (it’s not over!)

Though summer is not officially over, Labor Day ALWAYS signals how close it is to being over and I try my hardest not to let that sadness creep into my mood over the long weekend, and instead, enjoy the shit out of it instead. I have a few other posts in mind this week, but after reading one of my bestie’s post on summer, I just had to throw down some of my favorite moments of this summer, ode-to-summer style.

It ain’t over till it’s over people, enjoy the shit out of every last warm, summery day. I sure as hell plan to πŸ˜‰

An epic bloggy meet-up in June to kick the summer into high gear!
Assuming the position…dockside (with bloggy friends!)
Twister. Genius game for pure laughter and fun (played many times this summer!)
Summery snacks, garden-fresh, perfection.
Sweaty sister runs (and many many with M!), how I love thee.
Summer bucket list item – CHECK!
Funny boys…lots of photo bombs and picture taking ‘fake-outs’
Wine, wine and uh, more wine? πŸ˜‰
Lots of niece time, niece pics and soon enough, her SECOND birthday!
*more* dockside fun. ❀
b9 love…picture taking fun at the beach this weekend (for a contest at the studio!). so so fun!
A trip to wine country that will never be forgotten…perhaps another in our (near?) future? Must.
Wine tasting fun, and a photo bomb from my brother in law πŸ˜‰
Group picture at one of our favorite wineries, Field Stone. <3!
The most breathtaking sunset on the lake that I’ve ever seen.
Capturing some moments from summer this weekend, complete with laying in the grass, watching the stars (summer bucket list item, check!) and gorgeous blue moon with besties!

Summer. Is. Bliss. And it’s not over yet. *holding on for dear life*

  1. Love it! Love the pics documenting it all. I can’t believe it was just a few months ago that we saw each other. Seems like a lifetime!

    Come on down to Texas! We have summer until at least November. πŸ™‚

  2. Looks like you’ve had an amazing summer! I am kind of torn about it…I LOVE fall, but I don’t know that I’m ready for the summer to be over. I’ve really enjoyed the lake with my guys this summer and I don’t know that I want it to be over quite yet…

    1. I LOVE fall too, but HATE that it comes so close after summer, if that makes sense. I will embrace it when it comes but for now, summer summer summer!

  3. I love love love all these pictures. Whenever I see you post something on Instagram of FB, it totally puts a smile on my face. You all have lived the shit out of this summer and I love it. And by the humidity outside today suggests, summer is not over yet!

    1. We HAVE lived the shit out of it! You have to! I love instagram for little glitters of happiness throughout the day! It’s the best! And no, it’s NOT over! πŸ™‚

  4. I seriously LOVE this. It looks like you’ve had an amazing, memorable one. ❀ I need to vacation with you girls. Seriously.

    PS: Is it stalkerish to absolutely LOVVVVEEEEEE the barre n9ne photos??? I love photography, professional or not, and those photos say SO much about you guys.

  5. I love this so much! what a fun-filled summer with lots of awesome workouts, wine and water! this makes me want to post a summer recap so I can reflect and remember our 1st summer in NYC. as much as I LOVE summer, I’m pretty stoked about fall! (minus the getting dark so much earlier…)

    1. It WAS a fun filled summer with lots of activity, fun, and wine πŸ˜‰ You totally should do a recap like this for your first summer in NYC!
