My summer in review... in pictures? I Heart Faces may not have known what they were in for for this week's challenge. Actually, I think they totally knew what they were in for, which is why they aren't judging this week. Just enjoying the photos!
Let me tell you, I had a great summer! I finally got my DSLR that I'd been wanting since... oh... forever. I remember my dad's old brown camera bag from when I was little. It was an SLR camera and I've wanted one ever since!
I'm also very thankful that we're now in the digital age. I would have never been able to afford the habit of film photography, and I honestly don't know how great of a photographer I would have been.
Blah blah blah. So here is my summer in pictures. And captions.
|Many trips down to Columbia... but this summer they finished the roadwork on 385, which made the trip much shorter. This picture was taken before the roadwork was completed. It was about 900 degrees outside and we didn't have air conditioning.|
|So many fun dates this summer! I love living here!|
|Both me & Josh are June babies, and so were a lot of people we worked with! So we had everyone over to our house for a pool party and cookout to celebrate. Here, several of the guys were having a sing-a-long... yeah...|
|LOTS of June babies! In both families they just make one big cake and put everyone's name on it. Here we're celebrating me, Josh, and his grandmother's birthdays, as well as father's day.|
|Bele Chere... oh Bele Chere. The pictures say it all. Such a fun street festival in Asheville, NC every July.|
|Fun seeing Miss Avery in the pool! We enjoyed hanging out with our NC friends every chance we got this summer.|
|Hey look, here are more NC friends! I've known Charlie and Krissy since I was a kid. They were our neighbors when Josh and I were first married 4 years ago. And they finally got married this summer!|
|The view from the reception.|
|And the sunset that night... how amazing!|
|The next morning we hiked up to Max Patch Bald. I'd heard about it earlier in the year and wanted to go, but after driving that gravel road for 40 minutes to get there, I knew it was now or never... I may never go on that road again!|
|Trips to Columbia with my love... dates... being silly. That is summer.|
|Rylie has officially taken her place in the family. She has everyone wrapped around her finger. But what baby doesn't? We all turn to mush around Sunaura, too!|
|Spur of the moment trips. Our summer was full of them. What started out as a relaxing Friday night ended us up here at the Swannanoa Gathering in a different state! What fun, though, line dancing with my dad and listening to old time music.|
|Meow! One good picture of the cat... finally.|
|And we now live near Chuck Norris. What? How dare you say that's a statue? Chuck Norris is watching you...|
|And last, but most certainly not least... photography! I have been so blessed to have my summer full of it! And I'm surrounded by supportive people which is really a great blessing.|
