I’m determined to come up with a better name for our little blog than that, but it will have to do for now. Any ideas? Let me know. I’m desperate for something better.
I promised you a summer update so we’ll see how best I can recap. Although Summer does not officially begin until June 21, it’s been since April that I have shared the happenings of our life on the recently-retired My Life as a Grown Up, so here goes. And because pictures are more telling than words sometimes, be prepared for me to blow your mind with almost 50 photos (sorry and you’re welcome).
Found out that Abbi & Jeff are expecting a baby boy!! Woohoo! (no photo, but couldn’t leave it out)
Disney on Ice with Abbi, Maddi, Izzi, Jen, Lexi & Gma
David Sedaris with MacKenzie – thanks, friend! 🙂 (no photo)
Easter fun with the family (no photo, but couldn’t leave it out)
Watched my three nieces with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law! (no photos – shocker!)
Jen’s birthday (no photo, but couldn’t leave it out) Fun dinner & games on her actual birthday, then breakfast with the family!
San Francisco for work/Katy & Kyle’s stunning wedding
June 2nd we said good bye to our good friend and baby, Peanut.
Helped my best friend house hunt and decide on her new home in downtown Phoenix!
Nanci’s Birthday Celebration
Got together with old friends, Sarah & Liz for dinner! (no photos, but still a highlight)
Jeff’s birthday celebration (no photos, but still a great time with family)
4th of July at Jeff & Abbi‘s house where the guys and kids put on our own fireworks show!
His obituary (I don’t like that word) was phenomenal. He was an incredible man. More to come on honoring his life soon.
I spent a week in SF helping out two sister Kimpton Hotels. It was a wonderful opportunity! I taught them some good stuff and did not take a single photo.
Maddi turned 6 & G-Ma and G-Pa bought a boat!
And that, ladies and gentleman, gets you up to speed on our crazy and blessed summer. Ups and downs, but through it all Josh and I thank God for our family and friends. They mean so much to us.
