July 2015 Recap & Personal Updates

Oh, sweet summertime. You’ve been good to us. July was a fairly relaxing month for us both, and we were able to tackle some fun projects along the way (& sneak in a trip to Cali!)

We’ll have more details about our amazing trip to Sonoma & San Francisco on Monday…but until then let’s look back at some of our projects from July.

Casey: I am thrilled to announce that I am an AUNT! Yep, just call me Aunt Casey from here on out. My brother and his wife had a baby on July 20th and the beautiful Harry Patrick O’Halloran was brought into the family. We are all thrilled and I already love this lil’ guy to pieces. The funny thing is I’ve never really been around a baby. I’m the youngest in my family, never babysat, and have never ever changed a diaper! I’m so excited to learn so much from my new little buddy and hopefully in a few years he will have some cousins to play with 😉converse shoe o'connor(B’s family waiting for the fireworks in matching converse….

Bridget: July was far less busy around here!! Matt and I had lots of time for just hanging around our house and relaxing. We spent time landscaping, enjoying the patio, we went on a lot of bike rides around the neighborhood, hit up plenty of ice-cream shops and even snuck in some fun summer date nights. The most exciting part of July was probably our trip back to Cali (sorry Matt). Let’s be honest here, a trip with your bestie to chat all things DIY over wine with other amazing bloggers is hard to beat! Oh, and Maggie’s place is ALMOST finished!! Her built-ins were installed recently, and we can’t wait to share the final photos of her living room + bedroom soon. In the meantime, you can find me enjoying every last minute of my summer vacation. I’m back to work in less than 2 weeks!!

We already have some big projects on tap for August…so expect things to pick up even more in the coming weeks. And as always, thanks for being a part of this journey.
