July is Always the Best

It's no secret that I've had a love affair with the month of July. Hands down, it is my favorite month out of the year. Not only does it have built in celebrations {my birthday & the 4th of July} but it's usually a month that I get to spend almost every weekend by/on/in a body of water somewhere.
All of that = a happy Chesson.
But this July? This July is different. This July is better. I may even go as far as to say that this is shaping up to be the best July ever.
Let me count the ways...

I feel like I could stop there because that's an awesome enough reason by itself but there are a few other reasons in addition to that why July is going to be the best ever.
2 - 4th of July down on Kiawah {for the 3rd year in a row!}

3 - A beach wedding for some of our Kiawah friends. Plus, I get to play photographer for the day again, yay!

4 - This future sister-in-law of mine is coming home for 5 weeks {& she gets here TOMORROW!}

5 - A trip down to Savannah with lots of our family and good friends to see this girl tie the knot.

6 - My birthday!
7 - My parent's 40th {!!!} wedding anniversary! Patrick & I are totally stealing their thunder however and we are getting married the week of their anniversary. Oops?

8 - The 8th Harry Potter book comes out.
See what I'm saying? There are so many good things about this month and I am so happy that it is finally here! Be sure to follow along with all of the July fun on Instagram & snapchat {both are @chessop} because I can only imagine how sporadic the blogging is about to get over here with all of this craziness going on.
Happy July, y'all!!!

  9. oh how cool that you all are getting married the week of your parents anniversary. so sweet! i love july as well, though not as much as you haha. june and july are my favourite months here, purely for summer. KC and I met in June (and I met my other bestie in the same trip) and KC and I got married in July. February is my favourite month back home - summer, birthday, etc.
    i am so nervous and terrified about the cursed child. i don't know how to feel.
