Happy 4th of July!

4th of july

Just a little red, white, & blue inspiration for your 4th of July week!

I’m currently in Ohio for a vacation to visit my family (both sides of my family!) & enjoying the last few days of my summer roadtrip. I’ve spent every 4th of July (all but two or three) in Ohio with my extended family, and I am thoroughly enjoying lots of family time, the town’s awesome/nostalgic 4th of July parade, endless cookouts (with burgers, baked beans, and all the fixins), colorful fireworks, and all of the weekend’s festivities. I just love the patriotism of the 4th of July, and it’s long been one of my very favorite holidays!

What are you up to for the 4th?

To Do | Summer in DC 2015

As you may know by now, I’m known in my group of friends for having ambitious to-do lists for each and every season throughout the year. I love having so much to look forward to, I like having ideas for when we need something to do, and I love to explore my city and the surrounding areas… there’s just so much to do and so much life to be enjoyed!
