As of Late

{Gorgeous rain-covered hyacinths in my moms garden}

Hello lovelies!  What have you been up to lately?  These past couple of weeks have been insanely busy, but in the best way possible.  I am currently in Raleigh, North Carolina visiting my BFF for the week.  This past weekend we went to Asheville for her Bachelorette Party which was an absolute blast.  This week we are simply having some much needed girl time which has included meeting her adorable new boxer puppy, hikes in the woods, amazing meals, and just some good old-fashioned bonding.  Then on Friday I fly home to celebrate my Dad's wedding!  Here are some photos from these past few weeks, enjoy!

PS - I have had a lot going on in my life lately and have put my blog on a back burner for a bit, but I am trying to get back into the swing of things here on Dreams in HD.  Please pardon my absence!
