Summer so far.

So...summer has hit Richmond.
It's hot (shocking, I know).

We're finally getting accustomed to summers in the South:

1. Michael and I had our first apartment cockroach run-in. I freaked. Michael crushed the hell out of it. #win.

2. We went to Comfort Saturday night in honor of my college friend Teresa being in town and only ordered sides. I'm not kidding. We felt so Southern. Fried green tomatoes, cheddar grits, okra, beans, snap peas, mac & cheese: it was your every day carbo load heaven. 

3. It's freaking hot here, and rather than hide from the sun yesterday we got out and enjoyed every sweaty sunbeating minute of Richmond. The crazy thing was people were doing a TRIATHALON in the heat down by the canal walk. I got heat stroke just watching them. 

I haven't done an Instagram round up in a while, so here are a few summer shots of late...

1: rainbow icee pops
2: water pitchers at The Village Cafe

  1. haha love the sides, so perfectly southern of you :) and all of your outfits are just gorge!

  2. That food sounds soooo good....more in part probably because I am starving and dinner is cooking right now, but really you can't go wrong with those things. I agree it has been unbearably hot around here lately.

    In other news, now that I know how close-ish Richmond is to Nova we should totally try and meet up sometime this summer!
