this summer (part 2)

So Ali posted about our summer adventures yesterday and as I read through it I figured I should share the pictures of my summer experience because it was a bit different than my lovely wife’s, and I thought it might be fun to compare. I wasn’t invited to any bachelorette parties and I wasn’t able to make it down to Atlanta, so I filled my time in other ways. No surprise that the running theme throughout my instagram pictures is beer…and lots of it.

this summer.

This summer has been a busy one for us – literally tons of traveling.  I really wanted to get this whole blogging on a consistent schedule thing down, but alas that was a bust. Sorry guys. 

So to give you an idea, we have been trekking up and down the east coast for what seems like two months straight now – for everything from family vacations, to bachelorette weekends, to mini-James&Ali-getaways. This is what our travel destinations looked like: New Jersey… Atlanta, GA… Ocean City, MD … Jersey Shore … Waterville Valley, NH … and finally Portland, Maine. So basically, we’ve been living out of suitcases for the better part of a month and half.

However, as much fun as that was, the summer is coming to an unexpected halt and school starts in just over a week. This means a return to normalcy for us and hopefully this blog. In the meantime, if you don’t keep up with us on instagram, check out some of our top favorite moments from last few weeks (and go ahead and give us a follow too).
