How in the WORLD is it already June? Kyle and I have some exciting news, which I promise I’ll announce in the next few days. There will be lots of changes, lots of packing materials, and lots of puppy shopping in the coming weeks (if you catch my drift). Last month literally flew by, and our weeks/months of relaxed prep time have now suddenly transformed into time-crunched hours/days. All that aside, May was a pretty awesome month, primarily thanks to Derby Day, Cinco de Mayo, and a pretty awesome opportunity in Columbia, Missouri. Since Instagram’s algorithm doesn’t like showing my photos to more than 7 people, scroll through my May Instagram round-up to check out everything you’ve missed!

Cheers to an exciting June! Is there anything you’d like to see on Instagram this month? Oh, and if you’re not following me already, I’d really appreciate it if you’d follow me on Instagram! I usually post once a day, and because I believe social media can be dangerously alienating in only highlighting the staged, Hallmark-worthy moments of users’ lives, my Instagram Stories will (hopefully) give you a very accurate depiction of how ridiculously basic my life really is. As much as I’d like it to be true, I don’t float in a pool on a flamingo all day, nor do I prance around my house with a full face of makeup and 5-inch wedges. Just bein’ honest, y’all! 🙂
