June was a nice month. While most of my time was spent wrapping up my summer session course, the feeling I have about June now that it’s over is predominantly one of summery leisure and freedom. I worked hard, but that’s mostly forgotten now and the rest at the end is what sticks with me.
This photo was taken during happy hour, while the subject was distracted by looking out the window at a street fair below. I had to include one of my husband this month because we celebrated both our dating anniversary and the anniversary of our engagement in June. We didn’t do anything too special to mark the occasions (a nice dinner and bottle of champagne at home), but it was lovely nonetheless, to have the occasion to think back to where we’ve come from and where we’re going.
I am working on a post about our quick weekend getaway to Atlanta, so I’ll say more about it then, but this photo is one of many I took of the murals in Cabbagetown, an old mill neighborhood in Atlanta where we visited a friend. I really like the way this wall has an older mosaic design surrounded by a newer painted mural and the way that seems to work with the history of the place and the direction the city is taking it now.
This photo was taken right outside my back door on the day I spent cleaning and puttering around the house. I think it might be a hydrangea, but I’m not sure. Just one of many examples of how strange it sometimes is to be a renter in a house for the first year. We’ve never spent a spring or early summer here before, so the plants that have been blooming for the past few months have all come as complete surprises. I need to go check on that status of this plant soon, come to think of it. If the mosquitos out there will ever quit swarming long enough.
I will tell y’all ALL ABOUT our picking project soon, but this colorful photo of the vegetables on the day we jarred them is definitely a favorite from the month. (Spoiler alert: they look very different now.)
Baby feet! My friend K. just gave birth to her second child a couple of weeks ago, and I spent Monday afternoon doing a little newborn/family photo shoot. (This isn’t my absolute favorite of the day, but I chose this one for my Project365 pick because it’s not anything too personal/private for me to use here.) It was lovely to see their little family all together with the new baby and the photo shoot was a success.
