Happy August friends! I can’t believe that summer is almost over. Like honestly, where has it gone? This past month we went to some outdoor street festivals, tried some new restaurants, hung out at a few parties, and had lots of park + zoo dates with Elle.

In today’s Life Lately post you can see what I’ve been up to all of July and feel free to follow along on Instagram and Instagram Stories.
