Hey there! Yes, I’m still alive. I have been relaxing this past month, but also trying to check a million random things off my check list before…wait for it…I GO TO GRAD SCHOOL IN GERMANY. More info on that soon 🙂 I wanted to share a few photos from my friends’ Laura and Ruth’s weddings. I was a bridesmaid in Laura’s and a guest at Ruth’s. It was so great to see old friends and party it up.

Have a great rest of your summer!
