2017 IN PHOTOS 7.17-9.17

JULY

July was nutty in a good way... my sister was back in the States, lots of summer things like iced coffees and swimming and puppies in bandannas... also a trip to Pennsylvania for a wedding, with a quick pop over in NYC to see a friend and watch the Game of Thrones season premiere...

 

AUGUST

August was lots of time spent outside, cocktails, a trip to Philadelphia for a friend from high school's wedding, more iced coffee and live music....

 

SEPTEMBER

In August I visited Chicago, started spending most of my Friday mornings with my best Columbus girls, drank lots of coffee and saw Sylvan Esso live and went through a break-up.

Weekending- Summer Style

This weekend, my sister Val and I headed out to Pennsylvania to attend the wedding of one of her good friends- due to an emergency, I ended up being enlisted as the wedding photographer- which I was happy to do. We had fun doing the whole wedding thing, (an open bar and dancing, what's not to enjoy?!) and then on Sunday, we made the spontaneous decision to drive another hour and a half and stay the night with our friend Stephen in New Jersey! He basically lives right across from Manhattan, so we were able to visit him, pop over to NYC AND watch the GOT premiere before heading back Monday morning.

A weekend well spent. 

These photos make Allentown, PA seem a touch quainter than it was... but we still had a great time! 

I've been to NYC twice now, and both occasions I had limited time... but I've enjoyed it. This was the first time I saw the Statue of Liberty, and the Ground Zero/World Trade Center area was open, so it was nice to visit and see the reflecting pools. Next time I pop in to visit my friend Stephen I'll make sure and schedule more time for exploring.
