Return from Europe

I have returned!  Nick and I are back from a wonderful 16 day vacation in Amsterdam, Venice, and a cruise through Croatia, Athens and the Greek Islands.

We had such a total blast, lucked out with fantastic weather and of course I took tons of pictures which I'll be sharing once they get organized.

We are now off again for the weekend to a small town in Washington called Leavenworth to celebrate Oktoberfest with friends but I can't wait to catch up on everyones blogs when I get back!

Mini summer boat-trip

During our high-school and college summer days, my best friend Courtney's parents would take us up to the San Juan Islands on a two week cruise on their boat.  It would be Courtney's parents, and then each sibling would bring 2 or 3 friends so it was basically a "kids party" the whole time.  Needless to say, it was a blast and always a highlight of the summer.

This weekend we had beautiful weather so got the crew back together and did a mini boat trip around the Puget Sound.  An afternoon on the water with friends -  I couldn't think of a better way to end summer!

Urban Tennis

A few weeks ago a group of friend and I got together on a Saturday for a little round-robin tennis tournament.  It was a blast and Meghan brought her camera to document the game!  We just took over some public courts up on Queen Anne for a few hours and played around.  There was graffiti in the background so we decided to give it the name Urban Tennis.

I'm hoping the weather is still as great as it is now when Nick and I get back from our trip so that we can play another tennis match!

Ivy and David's wedding

Hi everyone!  I feel like its been so long since I posted something other than my wedding pics that I feel like I have so much to catch up on!

This past weekend we had the wedding of our good friends Ivy and David.  Ivy and I have been friends since high-school and have over a decade of memories together. She and David are so wonderful together and Ivy is such a great girlfriend to have in my life. She is one of the most positive people I have ever met and I don't think I have ever heard her say something negative about anyone or anything - ever!

Nick and I were so happy to be at her wedding and we had so much fun and did tons of dancing into the night (there are quite a few embarrassing dance floor pictures I will refrain from posting)!  It was such a beautiful and fun wedding and I couldn't be happier for them!


yay Ivy and David!
