• 30 Summer Days {Weeks 4 and 5} + Win an Awesome Camera

    July 3, 2014

    Hooray! The 30 Summer Days Challenge is now complete! I snapped a pic and shared it on social media for everyday of June. I usually start these photo-a-day challenges, but never make it the entire month, so I’m pretty pumped that I finished it this time. And, of course, it was an awesome way to document the month of June—from being super-duper pregnant to having a 3-week-old newborn. It’s crazy how much my life changed in 30 days, so it was really neat to be able to document it. That said, here are my photos from week 4 and 5! (FYI: There’s a sweet giveaway at the end of this post!!)

    Week 4

    22 – Sunday Pancakes! Do you have a Sunday breakfast routine?

    My favorite June moment was taking Grace for her first swim. It seems like we notice and appreciate all these little things so much more because everything is a new experience for her. Can’t wait to get G & Q together! xx

    My favorite moment in June I think was when I finally signed the paperwork on my new car and wrapped up the sale of my previous car. It was bittersweet as I loved my other car, but I’m excited for the adventures in my new one!

    Best part of June was definitely the week my boyfriend and I spent camping in the Badlands. We had a great time hiking (12 miles!!) each day and exploring South Dakota (which is more fun than it sounds!).

    Favorite June moment? Hanging out around my brothers pool, watching my 2 year old nephew claim everything as his own. ‘Its mine because I want it!’
