June Photo Dump

Monthly Photo Dumps are basically end-of-the-month entries where I dump photos that never get its own blog post or never make it to the ‘gram. They include little background stories and that’s about it. I recently brought this series back to life to show what I’ve been up to the past month. Enjoy this month’s edition of the photo dump!


My youngest brother recently graduated from eighth grade and it was a lot of fun celebrating him! He graduated valedictorian of his class with a 4.0 GPA and won scholarship awards for his high school – I’m a proud sister! After his graduation, we ate at The Derby, which is a famous local steakhouse and their prime rib is amazing.

Birthdays / Father’s Day

Honestly, this month consisted mostly of me visiting family back and forth. On Father’s Day, we celebrated my dad by having lunch at Lucille’s Smokehouse where we ate more steak and enjoyed some southern lemonades. I celebrated two birthdays for the month as well – Chris’ 30th birthday and my brother’s 16th birthday. For Chris, we celebrated by grabbing lunch at Sequoia Brewing Company and enjoyed some outdoors-y themed burgers. For my brother’s, we had a family lunch at Luxe Seafood Buffet (unlimited lobster!!!). I’m positive I gained ten pounds this month.


In a previous post, I wrote about joining Postcrossing; well I stumbled upon the snail mail community and found myself some new penpals! I’ve rekindled my love for writing letters and collecting postage stamps – and this explains why I’ve been somewhat absent on the blog. I got too busy writing letters. For the month of June, I received a total of 29 letters from all over the world! Snail mail is a cool hobby, y’all.

Aaaand that sums up my month of June. I’m still in the process of trying to catch up on posts – should have this accomplished by July. Fingers crossed! Tell me how your month of June was. Isn’t it crazy how we’re in the second half of the year now?!
