Day212 One of my favorite Disney Vinylmations.  Now that we are back from our vacation, it's time to start planning the next one! ;) It will be to Disney World. #jessie365 #vinylmation #disney 7.31.13
One of my favorite Vinylmations. We are planning our next Disney vacation.

It was a pretty awesome month. I am so glad that we decided to take a vacation. It almost didn't happen. We literally decided the week before we went. I accomplished a few things that were on my 32 Things Before 32 List. I will be posting about all the things that you see above in future posts. Taking the Instagram photos while on the road was really fun. You can see my Instagram feed HERE if you'd like.

How was your July? Can you believe that it's August already!???


  1. Lovely idea, I think I may do it for August!

    1. It is really fun! :) let me know if you do it so I can check out your photos.

  2. What a fabulous month you've had! I love so many of your photos. Purple converse - check. My cousin bought a pair of those recently and I photographed them for Facebook! You and I really are sisters. :)

    The ladybug pic is amazing!!!! Also the whale pic, as you know. That's one of the things I want to do in my life is go whale watching. I dearly love the pic of you and Cody on the beach, with your toes in the foreground. I've noticed I have a toe fetish. I love to photograph toes! Also amazed at your photo of Simon (?). I can never get photos of my brother's cats!

    1. Cats are tricky to photograph sometimes! They always move. I actually hate my toes! Hahaha But I thought it was a cute shot. I haven't got to wear my purple Converse much yet, but do love them very much! I wish you and I could go whale watching together. If only Ohio was closer to the ocean. ;)

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos Jessie. It looks like it was such a wonderful month for you. We are so amped to soon get our RV and sublet our apartment so we can visit all of those lovely places. We've already picked out the solar panels we'd want on it.

    Sequoia National Forest is definitely on my list. I'v only been to L.A. and San Diego and desperately want to see the northern part of California. My parents went and got to see the Redwoods and I'm incredibly jealous but Matt and I talked and as soon as we get that RV and hit the road we're going up the west coast. I still haven't been to the Grand Canyon (and I love that photo of you and your pup) but my mom would kill me if I went without her. :)Cheers to making memories a priority. I think I'm going to start doing the photo a day, since I pretty much take a photo a day anyway, on my new space because I just love looking back at good times.

    1. Yes, the photo a day is really fun. It has to be one of my favorite posts I do now.

      There are so many beautiful parks and places to see on the west coast it's almost overwhelming!!! As we were driving I wanted to stop and see everything but couldn't. You two will be able to do what you want! :) I plan to share my Grand Canyon pictures soon.

  4. Has anyone hassled you about your car sticker yet? so good. :)
