August Moments

Summer is slipping by, but it’s not quite gone yet. I am hoping to get one more trip to the beach in, another outdoor concert, and perhaps some river tubing. While it’s been a great summer, I am very excited for fall — my favorite season of the year.

A couple weeks ago, Marimar, my former boss and mentor, moved to Miami. Below is a picture of me with her and one of my teammates. Marimar was a great mentor. She is one of those people I know I will remember and be grateful for for the rest of my life. Her positivity is inspiring. She has a heart of gold. A friend of Marimar’s hosted a beautiful going away dinner in her backyard. I wasn’t courageous enough to whip out my iPhone and take pictures of the place settings and food, but boy oh boy it all looked like it came straight from the classiest Pinterest board.

Andy Grammar, an artist who I’ve wanted to see in concert for the last couple years, put on a free concert at the Tysons outdoor stage. The concert was so fun. He’s probably one of the most amazing singers live. Not only is his music incredible, but he has a very funny and charming personality that kept the whole audience engaged.

Last night I had the opportunity to go to dinner with two of my best friends from high school/middle school. There are five of us in total who still get together whenever we’re all back in Northern Virginia. We headed to one of our favorite restaurants — Maggianno’s — for dinner. It was fun to catch up on life and reconnect.

I am so grateful we all still keep in touch.
