Backyard Family Time

Hello Orchid Grey readers! I'm Starr from A Thought is the Blossom, excited to be here guest blogging for Julie today while she and Chris celebrate their new marriage. I'm thankful that Julie left us with such a great topic to talk about before she left, because not only was it easy to come up with all the things I love about summer, but it was also kind of fun. What's not to love? There's late sunsets, no school (and thus, no homework), lake/beach trips, my birthday, shark week, my birthday during shark week (win for me!), sandals and sun dresses, and gosh, I could probably go on and on for days. . .

My boyfriend recently gave me another reason to smile about the summer when he brought home a ten-week-old Puggle as my birthday present! In the evenings when he gets home from work, we like to take Louie and our cat Monkey outside to play. Lately, that's when I've been doing my tripod shots. Jake will get the soccer ball out and kick all around me while the little dude chases him around. Needless to say, it's made outfit photos a lot less lonely and whole lot more fun. My boyfriend's usually a no camera/no facebook/off the grid kind of guy, but I tricked him into a family photo just for you guys!
Big thanks to Julie for letting me guest blog for her today, and CONGRATULATIONS on tying the knot!
