It’s never fun to work a full week after a holiday weekend, but we managed. 😉 Our weekend started off slowly and perfectly with dinner at my brother and sister-in-law’s house on Friday. We dined al fresco on caprese salad with tomatoes and basil from their garden, another yummy salad, spaghetti squash “hash” with peppers and chicken sausage and then finished off the meal with homemade coconut and berry popsicles. Yum!
After a fun pool day with friends on Saturday, we discovered a free concert series taking place at Smyrna Market Village that night. Thanks to a brief summer rain, the temps were really nice for an outdoor concert, and the music was great. We didn’t stay long, but I look forward to going back another time with friends and a picnic. I love our area more and more when we find little gems like this.
To round out such a relaxing weekend, I had two photo sessions on Sunday! I just started volunteering with a great nonprofit organization out of Texas called Preemie Prints, where photographers volunteer to do a session for local families with babies in the NICU (or those who have recently “graduated”). Ryland just recently graduated from the NICU after being there for 9 weeks, so I went to Marietta to do a newborn session with his family at their home. It will be such a joy to be able to gift these photos to his parents, and I can’t wait to share the session with y’all over on MHP soon!
