It's been a really great couple weeks and particularly good summer in general. We've had a break from the heat recently (as pictured in the denim jacket above!) and it's starting to feel like fall is coming. Last week/weekend, my sister and brother-in-law were in town (yes!) from Colorado and we just had the best time. It was relaxed and slow-paced, but we still fit in a lot of good hiking, eating and general hanging out. Over the weekend we went to West Virginia for a family reunion - the midpoint between where a lot of my extended family lives in Pennsylvania and where we live in Ohio. The scenery was beautiful and the hiking trails just what we were looking for.
Luckily, I always have my phone on me to document these and other happy times.
Row 1: (1) Family hike and (2) a new dessert I tried the other night. I took Ritz crackers and drizzled them with magic shell (the ice cream topping) and then let them chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Stellar.
Row 2: (1) Getting my new dress from Sarah's new lovely shop, Satterday! You have to check it out! (2) My sister on one of our many hikes.
Row 3: (1) Family night out at our family reunion, this was only part of the group! (2) Local lunch date with my brother, sister and brother-in-law.
Row 4: (1) Amazing detail on a butterfly during one of our summer field trips with my job and (2) A picture my sister took - until seeing this, I didn't realize how long my hair looked from the back! I haven't had more than a trim since May of 2010 (!) when I had it chopped super short (as in, above my chin) for summer.
Hope you've had a great week, happy Friday!
