Life :: Summer 2012 in 47 photos

This past summer was the best of my life. I didn't fully complete my list of goals for the season -- but at the same time, I ended up doing so much more than I imagined. Looking back, I can't believe all of the amazing trips I went on and the wonderful events that took place. I feel more blessed and happy than ever before. ♥

You already saw the outfits, but here are all the personal details in (no particular order)...

I went to Disneyland two (and a half) times.

I went to Santa Barbara with my sister.

I went to San Diego and met Jessica.

I went to Las Vegas for Brandon's birthday.

I celebrated Eric's birthday in Hollywood.

I celebrated Chris's birthday with an Italian dinner out.

I celebrated the 4th of July with Celeste.

I went to Powerhouse.

I went to Pride.

I went to an Olympics party.

I went paintballing for the first time (in 100 degree weather).

I went to Venice Beach for the first time and just kept thinking, 'this is the LA that I've been looking for...'

I saw The Nines and Beautiful Things perform twice each.

I saw Wilson on the side of the road

I saw my cousin Nikki when she came to LA

I saw my Aunt Eva and cousin Frank in northern California

I had an amazing photoshoot with Selwyn Ward (results coming soon)

I made new friends (this is Young)

I was featured in my Michigan hometown's newspaper

and I ended the season with a special Starbucks delivery.


  1. I am so glad you had a great summer and were able to experience so much! Something tells me this will be one you will remember and tell stories from for years to come!

  2. This is super cute, I love the idea of putting everything into one post for a flashback! Looks like you had a wonderful summer :)

  3. This is such a great, fun post. I like seeing everything you did over the summer. Looks like you had a great one! That first photo of you is so stinkin' pretty, lady.


  4. Glad you had such a wonderful summer! Venice is amazing and I am still jealous over that Mickey Mouse waffle... yum...

  5. What a great post! Looks like a very awesome summer to me :)

  6. I want to go to Disneyland SO badly. I wish my summer was half as eventful as yours. It looks like you had a fantastic time. Now it's Fall -- cold weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and leather.

  7. Looks like a super fun summer! That's what summertime is for: vacations and having fun. You can complete your goals during the school year, so to speak. My only goal in the summer is to have as much fun as possible.

  8. The outfits, the food, the dogs, the concerts...looks like you had the type of summer I always want to have! :)

  12. Looks like you had a busy and fun summer :)

  13. Oh you had a fun Summer :) I looove Venice Beach! I went there for the first time (that I could remember) this Summer myself. The best part was how spontaneous it friends and I were just watching "I Love You, Man" and saw the scene in Venice Beach and I just say "I don't think I've ever been there" and so we just dropped everything and went! Love spontaneity!

  14. Holy moly, did you ever fit a TON into your summer!! Doesn't it feel like the time is going by so fast...and p.s. I've missed you too!

  15. You did do a lot. Makes me want to look thru my summer photos.

  16. Saw Wilson by the side of the road - LOL

We have to do it again soon! I can't believe the summer flew by like it did! And I haven't seen Santa Barbara since my college days. I need to go back there! -Jess
