Simply Stated – 32

Today is Anne’s birthday (8/13)!

Well, technically yesterday since I’m writing this on Friday but you won’t get our email until Saturday.

Did you see our Instagram post?

I put together a fun video of photos for Anne’s birthday…you’ll have to go check it out here and leave her a comment wishing her a Happy Birthday!

This week went by so fast, didn’t it?

And wow…it’s been so HOT here in North Carolina this week.

Today it was 99!

It’s been a 2 shower a day kinda week.

Even though it’s been so hot & humid, we had a great week because we finally went to our first concert on Thursday night in over 2 years.

It was SO. MUCH. FUN to see Chris Stapleton live!

We had some cute dates too! 😉

And we have a few more concerts to look forward to in the next couple of months.

Our husbands may have bought a bunch of tickets because we were all so excited to have concerts back!

Have you been to a concert lately?

Although we had the concert and Anne’s birthday this week there were a few tough days too.

Anne has been busy helping her twins get ready for college for the past few weeks and this was the week they moved into their dorms.

Livy was first to go to Appalachian State here in North Carolina on Tuesday and Katy is headed to VT Tech on Saturday.

It’s going to be a hard adjustment getting used to their empty nest across the street. Hugs to Anne & Kevin!
