This Summer....

....Was Crazy!
 Back when I was thinking about this summer and planning things for us to do, I knew I wanted it to be epic. Because pretty soon, I will be out of school and working like a grown-up and I won't have the glorious, amazing 3 months called summer vacation...not all at once anyway. So my main goal for this particular summer was to make it as memorable as possible. 

 Today I am linking up with Erika and Andrea to count down my favorite summer moments! (just because I could not pick just one)

5. Beware of the Gators 
At some point during the summer, there was a sign put up in our old neighborhood reminding us the beware of the alligators! This sign was nerve-wracking and funny at the same time. Nerve-wracking because, alligators are pretty scary...and they love dogs or so we've heard. And we just happen to have a little lab who loves the water. But it was also funny considering our neighborhood was near one of the busiest streets in Charleston. Oh the irony.
  4. Summer Reading
One of my favorite things about summer, other than sleeping, is being able to read as many novels as I can get my hands on. While in school, I don't hardly get to read as much as I'd like since its so busy but there are very few things that I'd put above curling up with a good book. 

3. The Eye Doctor
As fate would have it, I have horrible eye sight. I'm one of those people who have to go to the eye doctor religiously for my eyes. This year while at my appointment, my eye doctor and I got on the topic about school. He informed me that he not only knew one of my professors but that they just so happened to be neighbor. Small world 


2. House Hunting & Moving
For the first 2 months of summer we were house hunting. I promise we looked at approximately 2480840958 houses. Each one of them we found something wrong had to be perfect.  Everyone kept saying that we'd know when we found the one. And just when we were ready to throw in the towel, we saw a listing on a beautiful home that we just had to see. Sure enough, as soon as we walked in, we knew.  Such an exhausting process but so so worth it! (I'd also like to note that we have not seen any signs of alligators so far ;))

My favorite summer moment: Summer Vacation
Once the house hunting was over, we were able to finally relax and take a vacay to Washington, D.C.  This trip was one for the books. Read more about it here

While on our summer vacation, we also got engaged!! Read more about and how it all went down here.  I absolutely love this guy with my whole heart 

I really can not believe how fast summer went by. I'm pretty sure the rest of America is scratching their heads and wondering the same exact thing and I know its super cliche but I really can't. This summer was such a blessing in so many ways.  I'm so sad to see it go, but fall is just around the corner. Hello, beautiful leaves, crisp morning runs and pumpkin and apple everything!
