Welcome back to my Photo A Day posts. Wasn’t it just the 4th of July? How is today the first day of August? Oh, not that I’m complaining because umm…. now I can officially say “we’re getting married NEXT month!!” Pardon my excitement.

Let me sum up July for you. Forgive me if this list makes no sense because I don’t think I’ve slept since June 30th.

  • Ran/power walked 98 miles. Ugh, so close to my 100. I’ll do at least 102 in August!
  • Moved to Philly
  • Roadtrip to Cleveland to see my best
  • Wedding invites mailed √
  • Hair & makeup trial √
  • Losing my mind √

My bachelorette party is tomorrow! 15 of us, taking over Philly. They’re all arriving today and tomorrow and I’m ready to parrrrrrrty.

Q: What have you been up to the past month?!

Q: Any fun August vacations?

See more bites of real life. 🙂




  1. Wow, 98 is a lot of miles. Go you! It looks like you had an amazing month. Your new kitchen is stunning.

    • Thanks Jennie! I don’t even know how I ran all 98 miles. Though some of it I power walked. I thought about recipes and food the whole time, I can guarantee that.

  2. Ahhh, I love photo round-ups like this, and I have yet to do one myself! I find it makes you get to know someone in a different way, a photo says more than a thousand words, right? 😀 Your dog is absolutely adorable, and you and your man makes such a beautiful couple 🙂 Wishing you all the best ^ ^

    As for me, July was the month where I got my first job as a chef in a local kitchen here in Glasgow, I cannot wait to properly start next week 😀 It’s been such a great Summer, hasn’t it? 🙂 Big hugs from across the waters xx

    • Hey Jules! Congrats on the new job! That is so very exciting. Thanks for all the kind words. My (huge!) pup Jude is definitely a cutie!
