Bits of July

Here's a glimpse of July through my phone.

Packing up an brooches have been to many more exciting places than I have; a cute building with pink and white scalloped trim; a strawberry-orange-pineapple-banana smoothie (I'm still making them fairly often, though not every day like I was); and pink daisies on my table.

The most adorable little llama notebook I ordered from my pal Mirta; plants in the bay window going strong (mostly); a birthday card for my nephew; and working outside on the patio on a beautiful day...nice weather puts me in the best mood.

I've been pretty obsessed with all things fruity this summer, so it was perfect that I came across a watermelon house; wearing my pineapple dress; eating lots of rainbow sherbet; and admiring a colorful cactus garden.

Eating at Le Diplomate, which I blogged about earlier this month; some pretty daisies I passed by on a walk; we spent most of the day on July 4th at the park and it was by far the prettiest 4th I can remember in my entire life (no exaggeration); and Indian lotuses.

We went for an evening walk with iced coffee a couple days ago; a dreamy sunset; a walk on the night of the super phone camera was really crap at capturing how huge the moon was so I just decided to have fun with bokeh instead; and rainbows are the best thing about summer storms.

All in all, we've had a really mild summer, as evidenced by the fact that I'm wearing long sleeves(!) in two of these photos. I've lived in DC for 15 years, and it's never been like this before. We have had hot, humid days too, but normally the hot weather sets in in early June and doesn't let up until September or October, so this has been a welcome change, and we're trying to make the most of it. I can't believe it's August already!

If you'd like, follow me on Instagram to see more of my pics. :)

  3. Looks like it was a good month! I love how each set of four photo's goes together perfectly.
