Summing Up the Summer

9 Sep

This summer was such a good one, as BG summers always are. It is hard to sum up what our little town means to me and our group. The best way I have heard it put is that it is a modern day Mayberry. It’s really the best way to say it. Everyone slows down and enjoys the little things: good conversations on the porch, bike rides and everyone’s favorite American pastime, baseball.

My friends Bryan and Karissa captured the summer by taking a Polaroid every day. It became a challenge for them to find the picture of the day. Check out the project here.

I, on the other hand, tried to capture our summer days with my camera of choice, the iPhone. 

Here are some highlights:

Loren and I shot a wedding together in Beaver Dam, Kentucky. These fun bridesmaids made the day such a blast.

So much softball! And the runner-up title for the Mid Summer Best of the Rest tournament. On top of that, we got our jerseys just in time for the very last game.

Playing softball with Ryan was probably the highlight of the summer. He started playing hesitantly since he hadn’t played since little league, but by the end of the season he was pitching half the time. I can’t believe it! I love being your teammate, Ry!Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset photo 2 photo 1 Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset photo 4 Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset photo 1 Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetBikes to the grocery, bikes to softball then dinner, bikes to snow cones and so much more.
