21 Dates of Summer: Dates 6, 7, and 8


(Outfit details here.)
(My love for dancing comes from my dad. He's got the moves. My husband loves to dance as much as me as you can see. )

Our vacation got to start with a big wedding in the family. One of my cousins (I have many!)  got married in Ohio, and not only all eleven of my brothers and sisters and I went, but so did most of my cousins, aunts, and uncles. It was a beautiful ceremony and the reception was a party to say the least. Since it was a late one, my sisters and I got a sitter for our babies, and we all got to go sans kids. I highly recommend going to a wedding once in a while with just you and your hubby. (Not always easy to achieve but so worth it!) Its a chance to renew your vows, remember the newlywed love, and then you get to dance and celebrate with family and friends. We had a blast. Wish I would have captured a few more pics of us dancing. We practiced our rhumba moves of course;)


The simplest dates turn out to be the ones we enjoy most. While we were in St. Louis for the rest of the week with my family, my mom encouraged us to sneak out for a bike ride. Just twenty minutes of cruising through their beautiful neighborhood. Not much needed to be said, we just enjoyed the ride.


When my family all gets together, its crazy fun. With 24 people in one house, there is always something going on! Not much sleep happened. ;) We managed to organize a night where all the adults went out to celebrate my sister Madeline's graduation from highschool. If you are from St. Louis, you already know the spot....if not, add The Hill to the top of your list of places to try in St. Louie. This infamous spot has several Italian food joints, and the one we hit up (Cunetto's House of Pasta) was out of this world! I am still dreaming about it...

It has been rough coming off of post vacay and back to reality, so this post was a great escape from my work load, and dirty laundry;) What are you all up to this weekend?? Hope its long and restful!

  15. Looks like a lot of fun was had on your trip Anna!! So great that you got to kick up your heels at a wedding (dressing up is so much fun!) and enjoy the quiet beauty of a bike ride together. Love how you take in the big and small things! This weekend we've had my sister over from Toronto and today our long time friends are coming for afternoon drinks and watermelon. Hope you're having a great one and that you're not buried in laundry!! xo

  17. Great great dates Anna. And it's so funny because I find such an escape sometimes doing a post...especially when you are remember good dates or a fun party you attended, it's like reliving them when you type it out and include the photos. :)

  18. Awesome date nights! I wish I could do that this summer as well. Alas, my fiance is working ... and we're in two separate states, haha. Not entirely helpful. You looked gorgeous for the wedding! I loved that red skirt. So pretty. I'm heading to a wedding later this month, too, and still have no clue what I will be wearing.
