August 16th and I just sent Owen back to school yesterday- can hardly believe summer is already over. Summer really is my favorite. (I reallly realllly realllly do not like carpool. ha. ) It is going to be a challenge to continue to get up early and make real food breakfasts but it’s important to me so I gotta make it happen. I also spent a lot of time at Starbucks last year, I’ll admit it. So making coffee in the Vitamix takes a little bit more time, too.
Favorites for August
I just love all these pretty flower ideas
Our favorite back to school books. (see here)
Eggs in the pressure cooker? You know I love, love, love, my instapot. Never even thought about it for eggs.
I tried pacifica nail polish this month – loooooved.
A few things I want to read/tackle this month:
I need to learn how to use instagram stories. I tried when making this video behind the scenes from a recent shoot with Ericka, but I gave up and just took a plain video. I’ve heard good things about this tutorial so I need to dive right in and learn alllll about it. I know everyone loves snapchat, but can I handle one more social media account?
Saving to read. Last year I pulled my IT band and it was such a bummer. Now that I’m trying to start running again..(but I’m going back and forth between running and swimming…)
These are super fun. Please no one have a session on the side of a cliff.
Since organic all beef hotdogs are whole30, these have inspired me to try a hotdog wrapped in bacon. Oh my.
So, what your favorite candy says about your personality.
Just for fun…
A session around this time last year – I have lovvved photographing this sweet little one’s first year and just got to see him at our Coastal Minis.
A session in August two years ago – eeek! what a perfect session at Holden Beach!
Loving how long this shirt is (and inexpensive, too!) When I’m out shooting, I love wearing long shirts.
Totally crushing on these boots. This heat has me ready for fall!
Love these hair clips!
Also, as Ericka mentioned here, this necklace…it has the coordinates of Holden Beach. (You can find it here at Sugar Britches in Holden Beach.
