Photo A Day, August.
Welcome back to my Photo A Day posts. Where I share photos of my dog, working out, eating chocolate after working out, wedding anything and everything, and beer. Speaking of working out, I’m happy to say that I did 137 miles in August. Am I crazy?
Ahhh don’t answer that.
Wearing my wedding dress is especially motivating, but I found myself on long runs and walks with Jude when I felt life getting too crazy. Recipe fail? Take a walk. Wedding planning stress? Time for a long run. Before I knew it, I was in the triple digits.
I can’t believe tomorrow is September. What! My life feels so much different from June 1st as I type this in our new home with my bridal shower, moving, bachelorette, food tasting, seating arrangements, rehearsal dinner planning, church program designing, hair & make-up trial, and bridal dress fittings behind me. It has truly been the best summer of my life, but now it’s time to say (type?)… September, let’s do this.
August 1. the bridesmaids dresses. two-toned lace. Stunning.
August 2. My mom’s friends threw me a bridal shower here in Philly. (I also had one in Baltimore, thrown by my bridesmaids.) It was a blast, lots of good food, good laughs, cupcakes, candies, and pink lemonade cocktails.
Later that night… crazy, wonderful, dancing, champagne, the best of friends, sisters, and future sisters. My bachelorette party in Philadelphia.
August 3. Today consisted of snack foods and headache medicine. Sooooo here’s a pic of Erin and I from last night.
