Fourth of July Weekend

Fourth of July Weekend Collage

This past weekend was glorious. I was off on Friday so I had a nice long four-day weekend with the perfect balance of time spent relaxing alone and hanging out with friends. Here are a few snapshots I took with my phone and my camera over the weekend!

Tell me: How was your weekend?

    My weekend was super busy and I now feel like I didn’t get anything accomplished. July 4th weekend is always my mother’s family’s big family reunion, complete with a memorial service on that side of my family’s cemetery. While all of the out of town guest and family activities were fun I feel tired now and like I didn’t get anything crossed off my to do list.

    I love your patriotic manicure. And the fireworks from the roof top look amazing. Was that pie as delicious as it looks?

      I know what you mean about family get-togethers- they can definitely be fun but they are also pretty exhausting! Hopefully this weekend will be a little quieter for you and you’ll have more time to work on your to do list :) The pie was pretty tasty- I wish I had made two!

    Love the photos, especially your nails! Glad you had such a good time :) I worked the first part of the day but enjoyed the rest of the night with food and fireworks!
