This summer has flown by. It feels like it just began and now we are weeks away from pools closing, school starting and cooler temps rolling in. I will certainly miss the pools closing up but I am welcoming the fall weather with open arms this year. It has been muggy, sticky, sweaty and gross this summer in DC, so I really am looking forward to wearing clothing that I wont completely sweat through.
This summer has been jam packed with a ton of travel for me. And by travel, I mean wedding travel. So much so that it feels like I have become a professional wedding attendee. I certainly am good at taking advantage of open bars and open dance floors, so I guess professional wedding attendee might actually be a viable career choice. I really can’t complain because they have all been in super cool places and people getting married but seven weddings in one summer is a lot.
So when I’m not being a full time wedding attendee, you can find me soaking up the last rays of summer in a pool somewhere on my new pizza raft. My giant pizza raft was acquired a few days after this shoot but has been accompanying me to every pool I have visited ever since. After testing out pretty much every float during a recent bachelorette party I threw in Dewey for my dear friend Marisa, I found that out of all the floats out there (even the famous pink flamingo float) that the pizza raft is by far the best bang for your buck. The crust makes a great pillow for your head and you are able to kick back room for your feet to stretch out as far as they please. Oh and you can’t forget the cup holders that are strategically placed between the pepperoni for all the double fisters out there.
