June is the best month -Said everybody.

Because I don't want instagram to totally take over blogging, I'll just throw all my instragams on here! haha. Useful.

Naw, I'll at least write something.

June came and went, but was not without it's charms. It really is such a good month, with lots happening, great weather, the distinction of being halfway through the year, and birthdays galore (mine being the particular one I'm thinking about here.)

 My reward for running. And God promised I would never again have to run on the earth. (No He didn't).

 A few of us from church had another evening at the homeless shelter, cooking dinner for the residents, and having fun.

 I had my first taste of cookie butter. This is significant enough to document. 

I met a few friends for a swimming day. Walden pond never disappoints. It's like this magical haven where all worries disappear for a while.

 Cooking out with the boys got creative. No marshmallows, no problem.
 I grilled some pork one evening, picked some lettuce from the garden, cracked open the watermelon and shucked the corn, and then stood back and soaked up the summer-nes of it all.

 Gourmet night this month was atop a library roof where we could watch the sunset over Boston. The theme was picnic foods. It was one of my favorite evenings with this group, and I wouldn't mind having picnics like this every (warm) month. 

The Scopper bowl!!!! I finally made it! It surpassed my wildest dreams ;) It was so fun to go with Michelle and Sebastian. They are always up for a little adventure, foodie or otherwise.

 I have really nice friends that I don't deserve. They made me feel special on my 25th birthday. Thank you all!!

My birthday buddy Kelsey had her B-day, and Ryan threw a surprise party. Yay! It was so fun to shock her, and then celebrate what an awesome person she is. 

Emily also had a birthday shortly after mine. I'm so lucky to have her as a neighbor and friend.

Dad's birthday was the 13th. I still count his birthdays, even though he isn't getting any older in heaven ;) Just a great day to celebrate his life. 
And the sunset the night of my birthday was the best gift. Absolutely stunning.  

 A little trip to the Science museum with Joey was tons of fun. That kid makes all my days.


  1. I can't believe a foodie such as yourself hadn't tried cookie butter yet! :)

  2. What a lovely post! June is an awesome month!!!
