When life gives you lemon(ade)s you plan a picture perfect picnic with your gal pals in your favorite party dresses right? While the weather recently hasn’t been the most kind (we shot these last weekend) I’m definitely looking forward to spending my summer laughing, indulging, and of course taking selfies with these beauties!

Fun summer ideas,

And for fun I pulled some SUPER adorable garden party inspired dresses in case you’re looking for ideas for your next wedding, garden party or picnic !

As we get older (and busier) we can tend to get really busy doing our own thing, but I think it’s so important to make time for your friends. These girls are among my favorite people, and we’re always planning our next adventure (which usually involves some kind of theme).  Because I live in the North End I’ve wanted to plan a cute little picnic on the commons for what feels like FOREVER, and I’m so glad we were finally able to make it happen.
When you’re as busy as we are (we are a very educated bunch Yay Kerrianne on her Ph.D) it can be im-possible to coordinate schedules alone, so preparing something to eat for the picnic? Um forget it. Before the girl came over I hit up Wendy’s and grabbed us some ice cold lemonades (Strawberry and Original), and of course some grub! Let’s be real I never met a french fry I didn’t love!
While picking up our goodies I also need to mention that the guy working at the Wendy’s (At the Quinpool Location) was SO nice. I mean I kind of was ordering all over the place because I wanted a bunch of different things, but he combined them together to save me some money (so nice). He even complimented me on my hair (so sweet) and not in a creepy way I really felt like it was sincere. Anyways… it totally made my day because I was running around like a lunatic to get everything ready for this shoot that it really put a positive spin on the day. A compliment or an act of kindness REALLY can go along way you guys.
If there’s ever an opportunity for me to wear a pretty dress and eat french fries you know I’ll be there! I hope you enjoyed this post, as much as we enjoyed shooting it.

    Sounded like a really sweet experience with the Wendy's guy! Looks like you ladies had so much fun – I love hanging out at the Commons on the weekend! Though I'm mostly in it for the puppy watching 😛

      We saw the CUTEST puppy while we were shooting the outtakes of those images were super funny lol in hindsight maybe i should have included them. The Commons is the best for puppy watching. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂 🙂

        isn’t it??? I really need to make a point of hanging out there more often rather than racing through there. It’s beautiful, and everyone is always so active.
