Parker and I celebrated our five year anniversary on June 26th! These flowers made my little day!
I dog sat for my friends while they were on vacation, and Jenny loved having an extra playmate around! She has basically decided Dug the dog is her brother and wants him around all the time. Don't mind her unimpressed look here... that's just the way her face is. ;)
As you can see, Dug the dog made himself right at home!
My friend Alexa flew in from California to spend 4 days with me, and we had a great time! She was one of my first friends in Virginia, and we loved planning a girls night to get the group together while she was in town. I loved hosting her!
I spent the better part of this past weekend with friends at the beach. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday! Not pictured is the giant (seriously, giant) swan we floated the day away on.
In honor of Independence Day, a few friends and I headed to Virginia Beach to watch the fireworks! They were beautiful, and the beach is the perfect atmosphere. I kept telling the girls how peaceful it all was. Looking around the beach and seeing all kinds of people from all walks of life memorized by the fireworks was a sweet sight. Just for a moment, it felt like the world was at peace. On another note, I've determined it's nearly impossible to watch the fireworks and not sing Katy Perry's "Firework".
Rounding out the week was my best girlfriend's birthday! The Jen pup turned 6 on July 5th (totally made up birthday), so we celebrated with a selfie and a swim in the pond! She is snoozing (what else is new?) as I type this and I just can't get over how great I think she is. Jenny is the bees knees in my book!
That's life lately!
