monday musings.

>> I didn't intend on taking a blog hiatus, but life is funny like that and sometimes it just says to you "hey, live in the moment!". It's been almost a month since I last checked in here so you can probably guess that August has been a crazy month for us. (And no, we did not have two kids in the last three weeks, those two are borrowed.) 

>> After a great weekend in NYC with Lizzie visiting here and here, I headed back to the City to be in my sorority "little sister's" wedding. C flew in about 1 hour before the rehearsal dinner and we were reunited at last (made it 10 weeks!). The weekend was a blast but we were exhausted by the time we got back to New Haven. 

>> Work has been crazy as the summer winds down and everyone gets back on a regular schedule. C and I managed to plan a last minute getaway to Kennebunkport, ME after we snagged a room on Hotel Tonight. We loved our quick trip and had a great stay at an adorable B&B

>> This past weekend we packed up the car and settled in for 7 hours to meet up with C's high school friends at Deep Creek Lake. It was such a FUN trip and I'm so glad everyone was able to come. We rented a big house and filled it with 8 adults, 5 kids under the age of 4, and tons of food and toys. Though the weather was a bit gloomy, we managed to have a blast and enjoyed being all together for once. 

>> Aside from all the travel, our week days have been pretty low key. I'm currently reading this book and then started this (audio) book in the car but had a hard time getting into it. I'm also anxiously awaiting the delivery of this book in a few days. If you're not following her blog, start now.

>> Maria (our wedding photographer and C's high school friend) took some photos of us this weekend to be used as Christmas cards. I had the honor of shooting her family for her and in turn, got a chance to play with a professional camera. Ugh. Wow. Now I know what I'm missing out on! I need this lens stat.

>> Also, quick plug for a few things I'm currently loving (with referral links!): Wantable, Fashion Project, Everlane. Go check them out!
