Recent Events...

It's been a little while since I last posted! I've taken lots of pictures over the past month or so and thought I'd share some of them with you as a pictorial summary of recent days.

Some of my friends and I have been getting together almost weekly for many years (I've lost count how many). In June we had the opportunity to participate in a photoshoot with a professional photographer at a beautiful public park in Washington. The lighting was fantastic, the photographer amazing, and a great time was had by all. Here's just a sampling of the beautiful pictures!

The next adventure was another concert...but this time....with FREE TICKETS that I won from a local radio station. I had been lamenting to my friend K that it would be so much fun to win concert tickets sometime, but so far I had not been that fortunate, and lo and behold, a few weeks later I got some tickets to see The Josh Abbott Band (a Texas-Country group). I was not very familiar with them prior to the concert, but K is a huge fan, and I am pleased to say that I am now a big fan, too! Check out their music if you haven't heard of them....you just might enjoy it, too!

Since it was a small venue, a small crowd and a not-as-well-known band, we got to stand on the floor right under the stage. So...first tickets won to a concert, and first time to be on the floor for a concert, too. Double whammie, and a great time with my friends K and E.



Also in July, I had the opportunity to go on a beautiful hike with a group of friends from church in celebration of my friend K's birthday. It's views like this one that make me thankful that I live where I live (I may not repeat that sentiment come the middle of winter.....).

This past weekend I had the opportunity to spend time with a friend from high school who lives on the other side of the country. She was in town and we went to a local art festival and ate dinner at Texas Roadhouse (one of my favorite places!). M, P and I (all pictured below) were in a group in high school called Young Ladies Literary Society (YLLS), where we would read books and then discuss them, eat snacks and hang out. Great memories! A couple days later I had a chance to get frozen yogurt with P and our friend J (also a member of YLLS), and the evening was so nice, I had to take a picture. Enjoy!

And that is a picture of recent happenings in my life. Stay tuned for the next installment..... :)
