So, the past few weeks have been spent as they should...enjoying summer!
My birthday is just a few days after the official summer solstice, so it serves as my kick-off to the season. For my 29th, we hosted a simple b-day BBQ with our closest friends-
A few days after that, I attended my first KC Local Blogger Meetup event at Off the Fifth
We've caught some concerts-
I have recently started offering event planning services and have already booked a few weddings. So, I've been busy checking out event spaces with my brides. Such fun!
Next up, I attended a second KC Local Blogger meet up, this time at Madewell in Leawood. Such a fun store. As a young professional, I sometime have difficulty finding clothes that work for my age (29). I'm in between the 20-something college age and not quite to the conservative mom/adult stage (perhaps I'm just in denial). Madewell is a mix of trendy and classic. Polkadot print silk blouses and great fitting denim for example.
They even offered a braid bar during the event-
First up, Saturday happy hour at Plaza III. Oysters and champagne to cool us off.
Next stop, The American Restaurant, which also offers happy hour on Saturday, which is a great way to try out a restaurant.
Last but not least, I volunteered at the suds of Fun Charity Dog Wash for the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. I am a huge dog lover and try to support this organization (and similar no-kill shelters) as much as I can. It was also nice to meet people just as crazy about their dogs as me-

Whew, what a summer so far. Thanks for letting me share little bits of my life with you.
