Summer Weekends

Summer is quickly drawing to an end and seeing kids getting on a school bus while on my way to work reminded me that Fall is almost upon us.  (Yes, I know some bloggers have been avidly posting Fall outfits although it befuddles me since it’s still nice and warm out there!) It’s been a busy Summer and here are some snapshots on what I’ve been up to by far this Summer.

Of the 18 flavors, my favorites were chocolate and salted caramel but Pierre Herme wins the taste test while Ladurée wins packaging wise!

2013 is perhaps the year of weddings as I attended two weddings over Summer and I’ll be attending another, the weekend after Labor Day. And then of course, there’s my own wedding. No, I’m still not quite done with wedding planning although most things have been squared away. In any case, with Summer winding down, I’m still hoping to be able to make a trip out to Shenandoah for a final hiking trip for one of these Summer weekends!

How have you been spending your Summer? 🙂

    Loved the macarons 🙂 And the first wedding decoration and also the Chinese one, so beautiful pictures! I only had one wedding to attend this year – and unfortunately I wasn’t at the city of my friend at the time! But one already set for the next year – I love seeing people in happy moments!

    Oh, the caramel macarons at Laduree – I miss them, they are so good!

    I am jealous you guys have a proper picnic basket. I’ve always wanted to get one but never wanted to spend the money – plus it’s not like I ever go on proper picnics anyways, bah!

    Oh how I miss summer! Mine is officially over, but it looks like you had a great one from the photos. Good luck finalizing your wedding plans!
