August was a quieter month for me work-wise, which means I fully relished my evenings and weekends work-free! I love summertime, and I’m not wishing it away just yet. We’ve got a trip to NYC and the Outer Banks coming up, and those two big trips feel like a perfect time to savor the lingering days of summer before transitioning to autumn! And I am SO, so excited for our vacations!! Over the last month, we’ve indulged in some sweet summer fun, if you’d like to see what we’ve been up to in August…
Vineyard day + wine tasting + picnic + celebrating my dad’s birthday in the mountains of NC
Cinnamon rolls for breakfast in bed + reading by the pool
Dates with my sweet husband (sushi this time!) + coffee dates with great friends
Al fresco dinner date nights
Articles Club, one of my favorite evenings of each month
A trip to Carolina Beach with some great friends… playing in the ocean, Can Jam, enjoying the sun + salty breeze, and seafood for dinner!
Catching up with friends + competitive date nights (this is our fave!)
Exploring downtown Raleigh and the fabulous Brewery Bhavana
Kayaking on the lake – a blissful afternoon!
annual Summer Soiree dinner party, inspired by the lavendar of the French countryside
It’s been a fun and happy month as our first married summer begins to wind down. How has your August been, and what’s been your best memory from the last month?!
