goodbye august.

well, another summer has come to a close and i can't lie, i am saddened.
i've always heard that life as a whole tends to "speed up" with age but was never really convinced.
this summer, however, may have changed my mind - it seemed to just fly by.

life kept me pretty occupied and i wasn't able to blog as much as i would have liked.
so, like in july, i've decided to sum up the month of august via photos :)
*warning: this post is verrrry image heavy.

and with that, my summer came to a close.


while riding bikes in santa monica, jenn and i (mostly i) were accosted by this british dude.
words were exchanged, a fake number was given and all was forgotten.
flash forward to this weekend when our bro-in-law in tags us both in a video on facebook with a caption that read, "holy sh*t, it's you guys!"

*fast forward to

part of me is dying of laughter because what are the odds while the other part of me is creeped out.
i always tell people how i'm soooo hypervigilant due to my many years of watching law and order: svu.
apparently i'm not as aware as i thought, lol.


  1. The YT video is so bizarre lol. Great pictures

  2. Aw, Vanessa it seems that you had such a lovely and memorable summer! I understand your sadness about letting summer go, but see things on the bright side: at least you have loads of fun memories about it :)

    Anyways, the pictures you show here are adorable - and every single one screams summer and happiness, I love it! - and that video is so funny (you look very cute on it!) x

  3. Lol at that video. I'm still dying
