Carry on, summer

My blog has continued to be neglected...with good reason! Between wedding planning and summer activities I have been pretty busy.  Hopefully after the wedding, things will slow down and I can get caught up on documenting my summer. (I haven't even gone through my pictures from our Fourth of July vacation!)

Quick recap of summer highlights:  

I had a solid chunk of time off at the beginning of July.  Perk of being nanny: when they go on vacation so do I :)  Since Ahmed was finished up at IBM, we spent Fourth of July weekend at a cabin in Yankton, SD with my family, followed by a week at my parents' house which included THREE wedding showers, and a quick weekend trip to Kansas City to see family. Busy busy!

The first weekend in August, we attended my cousins' beautiful wedding in Sioux Falls, which was the last wedding Ahmed and I will attend before our own.

Last weekend, my sister and sister-in-law came up to Rochester so we could celebrate at my bachelorette party with some friends.  It was so much fun!

Tomorrow, we are heading to Yankton, SD with some of my high school friends for our Weekend o' fun tradition.  Next weekend I need to move out of my apartment, and then there will be less than two weeks before our wedding.  Hopefully I'll be able to breathe around September 14 ;)

I have done a few photography sessions over the summer, which has ended up being a lot to take on with wedding planning and a full time job, but I really enjoy it :)  Ahmed has stayed busy with job searching and his web design/marketing business.

Hopefully I can eventually get to editing all of the pictures from summer. For now, enjoy the new header :)  The picture is courtesy of Rachel Ebel Photography. Feel free to check out more of our awesome engagement pictures on her Facebook page.  I am so excited to have her shooting our wedding, which is in 22 days!!
