Moving forward, I’m publishing my monthly recaps as blog posts. Here goes, albeit a few days late!

Highlights from August

How was your August, everyone? I hope you had a good month and got to enjoy much of what summer has to offer.

I tried to get outside as much as possible and spend quality time with family and friends. Some highlights include: traveling to Newport Beach with my husband, attending a friend’s wedding and my daughter’s baby shower, having dinner with my BFF who was in town for a few days, and hiking and paddle boarding with friends.

Paddle boarding happy hour with these two!

Colorado hiking at its best!

My beautiful daughter.
