Summer Round Up v.2

Remember what I said last time about not having any bug bites, and maybe how the winds were changing? The winds have not changed. The winds are very much the same. Hi (sigh), summer.

07-14 Summer Round Up-2

Last month we travelled back to good ‘ol Maryland and did my birthday two ways! Kealan’s family has a Carvel cake tradition that I am more than delighted to be a part of.

I was gifted a million little plants and all of them are still alive, so that is my biggest accomplishment as a 24-year-old so far.

For the Dunn side of the celebration, my parents treated us to the Lion King at the Kennedy Center! I maybe cried when all the animals walked in during the opening number. Maybe/definitely.

We spent a week at the beach with Team H and it was lovely as always!

I am a dog person through and through, but we visited these kittens at the beach and it seems like the cat people out there may be interested in viewing…

We went strawberry picking at Linvilla Orchards and admired all their little succulents at their adjacent nursery. We took one home because duh.

We’ve been going to visit Wissahickon Valley Park a lot recently because Colby learned to swim! And likes it! A rare find indeed :)

In July we joined our church for a big cookout at a farm! This is Colby showing you his good side.

Some Maryland friends came to stay with us last weekend and after hitting up our favorite Honey’s, we got bagels at the Philly Style Bagels pop-up! So good.

It’s looking like 90% of this post is about food. No judgment. We made donuts with our zeeba neighbas and they were YUM.

Lauren + Matt \\ Kimberton Inn \\ Phoenixville, PA Wedding

Lauren + Matt: Lehigh lacrosse player meets Lehigh soccer player! Certainly these two could run circles around this poor hand-eye coordination and hates-running photographer… :)

Lauren’s family helped plan this wedding in only FIVE weeks! Maybe I’ll give them a call the next time I need some highly efficient party-planning ;)

Michelle + George \\ Olde Homestead Golf Club \\ New Tripoli, PA Wedding

Can you guess whether George or Michelle told me this story? Years before they started dating, George saw Michelle and was “struck by her beauty and affability”. Some time later, George swept her off her feet, both literally – the kind where you spar in karate class – and metaphorically – the kind where you get married.

If you guessed George… you were right ;)

I offered to drive her, and she told me she’s been driving golf carts since she was teeny tiny. So off we went :)
