Monthly Musings: July Highlights & Favorites

Can you believe how quickly July went?? It’s crazy! I won’t lie, I am getting excited for fall, but before I get too ahead of myself I wanted to take a look back on July!

Highlights from July

The 4th
My sister-in-law’s family owns a lake house and every 4th of July they host a picnic. They have kayaks and a paddle board to take out onto the water, plus this year was the second corn hole tournament (usually it’s horseshoes). It was a blast!

Kayaking
Along with kayaking at the lake house on the 4th, we also went kayaking at a nearby state park! It was a beautiful day outside and being out on the lake was so peaceful. I honestly could have spent all day out there.

Newport, Rhode Island
One of my favorite places and it’s only about an hour and twenty minutes from us! I got to eat at my favorite Newport restaurant, The Red Parrot, and tried a delicious s’mores donut at Liberty Donuts. We were only there for an afternoon, but I’m still glad to have been able to go!

Summer sunsets
This was taken at the beginning of the month. Sunsets are my favorite especially in the summer because they make the sky look absolutely beautiful!
