edit: some of you asked about my crazy flamingo swimsuit. when seth & i were shopping for his suit (his actual suit, not a bathing suit) we parked outside of jc penny. i don't think i've literally ever bought anything from there, but as we were walking out to our car i spotted this baby from across the store. $22 later, she was mine.
while en route to the wedding in north carolina, we actually made a little detour to memphis tennessee to visit my parents. it was a brief visit, but our first since they relocated last summer. it was nice to finally get a picture of where they live and what their lives are like. their area (collierville) is really beautiful and they have a salt water pool in their back yard which was a welcomed respite from the heat and thick humidity.
i don't have many pictures to show for our time there because it really was brief, but here are the few that i took (mostly with instagram)...
almost soon as we got out of the car, we got into the pool.
it's okay if you think this bathing suit is fugly. i love it.
on our last night my mom made an amazing nicoise salad. paired with a couple delicious cheeses and wine--it was the perfect summer meal.
can't wait until our next visit!
