summertime and the livin is easy...

Well it's finally summer! Goodbye classes, helloooo vacation! (for now)

I've been home for a week now and it has been amazing. Last week I was the only one home until friday so I just did whatever I wanted. I bought a new book, got coffee, went to the mall, hung out with Ashley & David, played the kinect and did lots of relaxing.

haha this frog is straight up relaxed.

I love the feeling when you come home. It's such a relief to come home for summer and not have a single assignment or test hanging over my head. I had been working so hard the last few weeks! This semester was a lot of work but it paid off and I made Dean's list for a second semester in a row! So I'm pretty proud of myself haha!

Summer also means I get to start my internship for Charlotte Style Magazine and yesterday was my first day! I headed over to Bridgette's house (the editor) and we got to know each other and I was able to watch as she was featured in a photo shoot for Crave charlotte edition. Crave is a REALLY cool book! Its " The most unique and stylish guidebook for city living and the ultimate guide to the places women CRAVE." It features sucessful women in big cities! They have one for cities such as Atlanta, L.A., Boston, NYC and now Charlotte! You can check out their website here CRAVE

Bridgette also gave me the opportunity to help design a page layout for the featured designers page in their magazine. I LOVE layout design and had so much fun getting doing that last night! We used InDesign for Lit Mag in high school and I was happy to get back into the swing of it.

The photo shoot and page design were both really fun and I am so pumped for the rest of the internship!

The photo shoot was at 11:30 about 45 minutes away near Lake Wylie so by the time I was headed home it was 1:30. Aka the perfect time to pick up some Sonic. (too bad I missed happy hour) But let me just say, sonic is probably one of the most delicious fast food places EVER. Sonic cheeseburger, fries and a strawberry limeade? Umm, yes please! It was phenomenal. 

Then this morning Lindy and I went to Starbucks to hang out and get some yummy coffee! And she took some pretty swell photos of me for her blog! 

Today is also Ashley's birthday! After Lindy and I got Starbucks we picked up her present and brought her a red velvet cupcake from SAS! Ashley is turning 24 today! I cannot even tell you how much I love having her as my big sister! She is so sweet, an amazing role model, and an awesome new mom! She is so fun to shop with, go on trips with, jam out in the car with and talk to on the phone! I am lucky to have been her little sister for the past 20 years and many more years to come!

Anyway, long story short, my summer is going swell. I am really looking forward to starting classes at ECU and all the fun stuff that summer has to bring!
