How crazy is it that August is already here? Shops have started putting out their Fall clothes and back-to-school sale ads are everywhere. In college, the start of August meant that it was time to move back into the dorm, reunite with friends and start classes. Now that I am in the working world, I feel like everything is happening around me and since I don’t go to school or have kids, life is just proceeding on as normal. I do miss buying back-to-school supplies and the excitement of new classes and new school year, but I am enjoying sitting on the sidelines and watching from a distance just enough.
Just because I mentioned that the transition from July ↠ August hasn’t meant much to me, doesn’t mean I haven’t had a lot going on this summer. Quite the opposite actually…
The first couple weekends in May were spent at graduations and weddings. It is wedding season, after all!
First up, we went to Caroline and PJ’s wedding in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I became great friends with Caroline playing with her on the USC Club Tennis team. We have so many college memories together, and I was so glad that David and I were there with her while she made one of her most important ones. Congratulations to Caroline and PJ!
David caught the garter and had no idea what it was.
Next was Jacob’s Graduation from high school. He has grown into quite the young man and I was so glad I was able to be there to support him on his big day.
Shortly after – actually the same exact night of Jacob’s graduation – I got to celebrate the wedding of my oldest friend Lindsey
Wilder Mazzola! Unfortunately I had to miss the ceremony because I was at the graduation, but I still got to partake in the wedding festivities at our neighborhood country club.
This picture is of Lindsey and me at Medieval Times on a 4th grade field trip. My oh my have things changed since then!
This picture is of Lindsey, me and my other oldest (and best!) friend Niki. It was so good to celebrate together!
During all of the hustle and bustle of weddings and graduations, David got a new job in the city and moved into a great house with his friends Brock and Ian. His backyard is fantastic. They even have a bamboo “jungle” in the very back to separate their yard from the neighbors. He loves his new job — I am so proud of him!
Looking forward to seeing how well he does at this new company.
Thats it for May – June and July recaps coming soon!
