June Through the Camera Roll

July 01, 2020
How wild is it that today is July 1st?! I am hoping this month doesn't fly by as quickly only because that would mean I will have a two year old on my hands in August and that is completely mind boggling! Since I haven't really done a proper weekend recap all month, I wanted to do a little look through my camera roll because this was the first month since March that Boston started to slowly open back up and we were able to enjoy playgrounds and more public spaces - while always appropriately socially distancing ourselves and wearing masks!
We spent a lot of time at the playground once they opened mid-June and it's so nice to have that back in our routine.
Enjoyed many afternoons outside in our little back area with Sophia's inflatable pool
I perfected my at home dip manicure 
Had the best picnic at the Seaport with some take out Shake Shack
Gary & Sophia flew kites for the first time and it blew her mind! We also fell in love with the UMass Boston campus that overlooks the water and has so much great outdoor space to enjoy. 
We had a couple of date nights thanks to my parents watching Sophia!
Celebrated Father's Day at the beach and with, you guessed it, another picnic in the park!
Made our way to the Franklin Park Zoo and now that Sophia "gets"  animals it was so fun even though some of the exhibits were closed. We felt very safe with masks being required and limited people being allowed in with timed tickets. Everyone was very respectful of other people's space.
We capped off the month with a great day in the Seaport. Martin's Playground is one of the best in the city and filled with so much to explore and there's a little splash pad there as well. It was a hot day, but we ventured to the ICA steps for a picnic lunch and some great puppy watching for Sophia. 
Biggest change - I had 7 inches taken off from my hair and it's the shortest my hair has ever been. Still taking some getting used to, but I like it shorter for summer!

We were incredibly lucky with the weather in June and I think that made the month that much better. How was your June?


  1. Beautiful pictures. Looks like you’re living up summer the bests ways you can and I love it!

  2. So many sweet memories! Once we were able to get outside more during "quarantine" it seriously made all the difference!

  7. Your hair looks great! I think it's the perfect cut for summer! I just chopped mine off, too, and it's shorter than it has been in years. Quarantine made me do it! Haha.

  8. It looks like Sophia is loving all the outdoor time - these pictures are precious! Also loving your shorter hair!


  9. I absolutely LOVE your hair cut! So pretty! S looks like she is living her best life with all that playground, zoo and beach time! UMass Boston campus looks so nice!

  10. That looks like such a fun month!

  11. Looks like a fun month! it's nice you got out to explore so much and the zoo sounds wonderful! :)

  12. It looks like a lot of fun was had over the last month. I can't believe how well the home manicure turned out. You really have gotten good at it.

  13. Biana, it's crazy how much we're alike in our mom thinking! I was going to get that shirt for Eddie, too! Lol! That's awesome that the parks are open in Boston. They're still closed off here in CT, but I've been making the most of it by taking advantage of the inflatable pool we have. I can't believe Sophia will be turning two next month, that's crazy! Time is flying. I remember like it was yesterday when you went to Ireland when pregnant with her and blogging about it. I love this post. Thanks for sharing your photos and memories with us, girlie!


  14. Your hair looks SO fab girl! And it looks like you guys have had so much fun last month and got out in the safest way!

  15. You are beautiful. Happy Fourth.
