Photos from Washington

img_5156Two weekends ago my family flew to Washington for my cousin’s wedding. It was beautiful and so classy! I wanted to share a few photos from the trip with you today.Processed with VSCO with c1 presetThe flowers at Pike’s Place Market were incredible.img_2545img_2540Grandkids with grandparents.

Texas, why are you SO hot?

img_3829*I have passed away from heat exhaustion and am writing this from my grave, which is air conditioned.

Texas, why are you so hot? Why do you burn me when I try to touch the steering wheel of my car? And how come you never seem to dip below 80 degrees, even at night?

I would like to go outside for more than ten minutes this summer. I would like to walk from my car to my office without sweating through my shirt. I would like to leave things in my car without fear of them melting. Is that too much to ask?

Texas, you’re a hot mess. And now I am too.

End of rant. Roll credits.

San Antonio Art Show

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetLast week we drove down to San Antonio for my friend Ruth’s art show. She is so talented! Here is her website ;p

It was my first time in San Antonio and I really liked it. The architecture was beautiful and I learned a lot about the Alamo, which is important, seeing as I’m a Texan now!

Happy Face

I will leave it frustratingly vague because #privacy, but now you know why I haven’t had time to blog– because looking for a job was a full-time job! Done and done. That’s a wrap.

Chicago and Michigan with Isaac

He is doing an internship in St. Jo, Michigan, and he drove down to pick me up. We spent the morning in Chicago (it’s so cool!), and then headed up to Michigan. The lake was HUGE and gorgeous. I was having cognitive dissonance– I kept saying, “This has to be the ocean!!!” and Isaac kept saying, “No, Micah. It’s a lake. I promise.” It was so much fun and I definitely recommend Michigan to anyone looking for a beautiful, affordable trip to the coast.
