Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’s been too long. I don’t even know how to start this post after my 4 month blog silence….
I’ll start out by saying that this summer was great. I traveled, worked tons, started the most amazing internship at a local restaurant, found out I’m going to be an aunt come February 2015, and just tried to concentrate on life, my relationships, happiness and where I’m going.
However, I do feel like I’m in a weird transition right now. I’m 25, and between school, work and my internship, I just feel like I’m literally pulled in 5 different directions, with no clear idea of which way I want to go. But isn’t that life? Isn’t everyone, regardless of their age, wondering what the hell is going on and where they’re going to end up? Maybe, maybe not. I guess I’m just trying to make sense of becoming an adult and what I want my life to be. For so long, we have our parents to make decisions for us and tell us which way to go, and sometimes I feel like I’m a fish out of water when I’m making big life decisions.
Anyway, without rambling on about who even knows what, I have some photos from the past few months that I want to share. This post is photo heavy, so in the words of Kenny Powers, hold onto your dicks.

We drove south to Asheville, North Carolina back in August. It’s our favorite place to camp, and we always leave there wishing we lived in a house nestled in the mountains. While we were there, I had the chance to meet my blog friend, Kaity and her fiance, Alex. Kaity is the definition of a beautiful person inside and out, and I’m so happy we were finally able to meet. She’s an insanely talented photographer and we all met up to take photos, hike and enjoy the ridiculous scenery.
Kaity and Alex ^^

Changing gears….we headed west earlier this month to see my brother and SIL in Denver. They’re expecting their first baby girl (!!!!!) this winter, and my family is beyond excited. Like, we have her first beach trip planned for next summer. And her bathing suit already laid out.
Rocky Mountain NP!
I also have some recipes up my sleeve and I’ll be sharing those soon. I’m also hoping to get permission to post some photos from the restaurant I’m interning at, so I’ll definitely throw those up if/when I have them.
It feels great to be back. ❤
