Summer So Far

First off, my heart fucking broke when I learned about the shooting at LGBT nightclub, Pulse. However, I was so proud to see this sign posted in the middle of an ultra-conservative town in FL.
We have a long way to go, but I am holding out hope that a day will come when people choose kindness over all else.

Okay, with that being said... I figured since people photograph everything they do now a days, I might as well take a picture of myself at the gynecologist. My aim is to encourage women to share their personal and "taboo" female experiences without shame. By the way, the word taboo's origins come from a word that means menstruation. Point made.

Most of summer (so far) has been occupied with babysitting, half of which takes place at the pool and/or beach with little demon girls, such as the one below ;).
...plus the kids got a new little kitten named Arthur, and he is sweet as can be!

Mom and I made a trip to visit my Grandmother in Virginia for Mothers Days, making a pit stop in Charleston, South Carolina (Aka-the best city in the south). I absolutely love Charleston and really hope to live there one day soon.
I mean, just look...

While we were in Virginia, my grandmother also turned 93 (!) on Mothers Day.
It was a really special trip that I will remember forever.

 Also, Eva turned one-years-old!! Her mom threw an adorable little party for her, that included Eva double fisting vegan cake.

Lola also enjoyed the party...namely when all the guest left & it was just her and a pile of tissue paper streamers.

My high school bestie got married.
She had one of the most well done, fun & beautiful weddings I've ever attended.

I love summer in Florida, and this photograph I took in St. Augustine really embodies the beauty of the deep south during this season...even the stifling heat has its charm.
