Photo Diary: Dog Days of Summer

It’s hard to believe that the summer is already winding down. Labor Day is right around the corner, which marks the seasonal shift to fall (in my book). In a last ditch effort to squeeze in some bits of summery fun, I’ve been making the most of these last few (hot!) weeks of summer. Whether I’m sitting poolside enjoying a cocktail, relaxing out on the open seas, fishing, or baking something sweet, these final summer days have been entirely relaxing and entirely satisfying… Here’s a little peek into what I’ve been up to:

Apparently Chloe is ready for the fall… This is how I found her sleeping:

Enjoyed a zinc sunrise…

Headed down to my parents… Clearly we were in for a hoppin‘ night:

Gone fishin’

9 hours of fishing and this is all I caught 🙁


Baked salted chocolate chip cookies… Yum! (Similar recipe here.)

What have you been up to during these final weeks of summer?
