Summer Days Drifted Away

Each week this summer has absolutely flow by and I just can't get over it. I've not been consistent about regular life posts as much as I had intended to so I have a little life in rewind post for today.
Let's swing all the way back to May shall we?
We enjoyed FREE THUNDER snow cones on evening:

We toured the great city of Chicago AND enjoyed some sweet time with family in Wisconsin!

We had fun on Memorial Day at the river:

I made this cute bed for Paisley, nevermind the fact that all the little pillows I made for her with it have been torn up...word from the wise, don't stuff dog pillows use pillow forms.

We attended and were apart of Saxon, from Coffee Darling, beautiful wedding! Kevin made a recap video:

Spent some time with this adorable face:

 We had some fun with these cuties one night:

Tornadoes came through our area on May 19th, I spent that evening with one of my sweet church families. And on May 20th the world watched as a massive tornado broke hearts 6 miles up the road from my home. Despite the pain I've never experienced such deep appreciate, pride and joy from the experience and the way my church stepped up.

We celebrated our anniversary at the end of May, right close to the beginning of June!

We celebrate one whole year of marriage! And took anniversary pictures with our awesome photographer.
More from this session coming SOON
I participated in a lovely link-up:
I finally talked about my mommy, and got real about some hardships in life.

I came home to a sweet note and flowers from my husband one day:

My husby rocked the gray and yellow combo for work:

This song spoke to my heart one morning so I doodled it out:

We had some fun time out with Paisley one night:

It rained A TON here and the creek behind our home has never ever been higher than it was that day:
gotta have a stylish rainboot outfit

Hard to see but that brown, that's the creek water and this is take from my doorway...normally I can' even see the water till I'm standing where that wood pole is.
 Kevin did some exploring of campus and took this sweet picture:

 This building continued to drive me crazy but man does it look good!
and now, well now it's AUGUST! Wow!

August will bring 
students back to Norman, farewell easy, breasy traffic days,
Headington more wrapped up and closer to completion,
studying, lots of studying for the NCIDQ,
saying farewell to my dear friend, and intern, as she moves away to a great new adventure,
lots of small group fun with movie night, activity night and another cook out,
My Church is Kind of a Big Deal funness(and that's the best way to describe it),
and hopefully many more joyful and exciting things
but always time with my sweet man!
Bring it on August!
