It has been a little while since I shared my last Step Into My Week post and that's because in the summer I don't always have exciting things or photos to document each week. I tend to save this series for the school year but thought doing it as an extra post could be a fun way to share some of the things I've been up to this summer.
I hope y'all are all enjoying this holiday weekend, I know I certainly am. A lot of time in the sun and finishing up working on content to go live in the coming weeks before heading to D.C. on Wednesday is the perfect balance of work and play. Speaking of D.C please leave me any recommendations of things to do there as I really want to make the most of my trip and only have a few things on my itinerary thus far.
As for what I've been up to … this month started with a fun weekend excursion to my friend Nell's beach house. Earlier that day we went blackberry and blueberry picking and then we packed up and headed for a weekend in the sun. We spent countless hours lounging in the sun and floating around in the pool and even got two fun boat rides in. It was the perfect impromptu weekend and we were able to start checking somethings off of our best friend summer bucket list (I'll do a post on that later this summer).
The following weekend I was off to visit my best friend Kate at Auburn to celebrate her 21st birthday. Kate has been one of my best friends since first grade so it was really fun to celebrate another milestone with her. Before I left I baked her a delicious Sweet Potato Cake and grabbed a bottle of champagne because a good house guest never arrives empty handed especially when celebrating a birthday!
We spent most of the weekend catching each other up on life lately, crafting (we painted and made our own jewelry), eating, and celebrating. It was such a fun trip and I really enjoyed exploring another college town even though it was summer.
The past few weeks have mainly been filled with nannying and the occasional outing but for the most part none of my friends are home this summer which is kind of a bummer. I used to always be the one who was gone during the summers so now when I am actually home it is weird that none of my friends are but it has been a great opportunity for me to really dive headfirst into blogging. I'm not sure I've ever been as proud of my blog as I have been this summer and lately I've been so inspired to post all sorts of different content for y'all.
This past weekend Nell and I decided to check another thing off our summer list and went to a baseball game for our local minor league team. Sadly the game was not that well attended but that allowed us to get great seats and I really enjoyed watching the game. Baseball/ softball was never something I played growing up so I wasn't sure how entertained I'd be but I would go to another game in a heart beat. Our team ended up losing but not without a fight as the game lasted eleven innings.
That's all I can think of currently that I've been up to but I would love to know what the highlights of y'alls month was!
