Summer is officially over, though you’d hardly know it today. The weather has been mostly really nice and we’ve been soaking up as much outdoor time as possible. We’ve traveled a bunch this month and while it was so fun, we’re looking to being home a bit more this fall.We had to get one more last hurrah in at the lake, so we jetted up to see my parents two weekends ago. We were rewarded with an absolutely perfect day full of kayaking, golfing, swimming and lots of outdoor time by the water. This is what I’ll be holding on to when returns rears its ugly head.The next weekend we all (my parents and Mike and I) went to D.C. to visit my brother and his girlfriend in their new apartment in Old Town Alexandria. We had a really fun weekend complete with a house tour, trip to the farmers market, great food, lots of walking and more fun.We event went to Mount Vernon, which was so cool! It was wonderful to visit this beautiful property that’s so steeped in history.Mount Vernon has lots of gorgeous gardens that we loved strolling through.Game day!On the house tour in Old Town Alexandria. We loved getting a peek inside some of this city’s beautiful old homes. And when we got home, we watched the Pats crush the Jaguars and took in the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse, which were both awesome.
Now that we’re home I’m looking forward to getting back to cooking more, especially some fall favorites like chili, soup and pumpkin and apple everything!
