Hello, September! End of summer life post!

Hi friends ;) 

I can't believe it's already September and Fall will be here soon! September is my favorite month- I could live in Fall all year I sware.

For this post I was going to do a summer recap since I haven't done a life/personal post in a while! 

I felt like this summer flew by and we definetly didn't have a super hot summer here but I am still ready for fall! 

Memorial Day Weekend

My husband and I took a trip to Holland, MI to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary which was a few weeks before Memorial Day. 

Fourth of July

I'm pretty sure I did a post about Fourth of July weekend already, but we just spent some time with friends and had a cookout!

Family, Friends, and Food.
I'm happy I was able and see my family and friends a lot over the summer! We had some fun times and I'm also glad I remembered to take lots of pictures! Plus, lots of yummy food! 

Precious little niece and nephew!
I loooove me some Pho. 

And frozen yogurt. 

On fun adventures 

First trip to Whole Foods 

My cats, of course. 

We finished our basement! 


Renassiance Festival 

Labor Day Weekend 

We took a trip to Royal Oak for the Arts, Beats & Eats festival. 

Afterwards we watched a pretty sunset on the lake. 

Goodbye, Summer! 

*Fall bits*
-My husband and I will be taking a trip to Myrtle Beach at the end of September! 
-I can't wait to go to apple orchards, and see the leave change on the trees!
-Halloween is only 8 weeks away! Haha 
-Big sweaters, boots, scarves, and pumpkin spice coffee here I come!

Thank you all for reading! Let me know what your favorite summer memory is down in the comments! 


  1. Looks like you had a pretty great summer! I haven't been to a Renaissance fest since I was in sixth grade for a field trip or something, but I remember it being so much fun!

    1. I'm obsessed with renassiance fairs!! We go every year and dress up everytime too haha!

  2. You and your husband are so cute together!! I still can't believe you're married (I think I mentioned this before) - I remember thinking you were in your late teens when I first started commenting on your blog! Your cats are very cute too - definitely getting one of my own whenever I move out :)

    I can't wait for the weather to be cooler, I love my big sweaters, boots, and scarves so much!
