Instagram Weekend: Elements of Summer

Happy Thursday! I can’t believe the Fourth of July is already next week. Can you? Where is this sweet summer going?! Time flies when you’re having fun. :-D Speaking of flying, I’ll be traveling home to Wisconsin this weekend for a brief visit. I can’t wait to see my family and friends! And it’s pretty hard for me to believe these past two weekends have flown by so quickly. I still haven’t even put a post up yet, so I’ll keep this Instagram Weekend post short and sweet — here are pictures from my past two weekends:

1. White flowers from my walk in Central Park:

2. A trip to Victory Garden in the West Village for some goats milk soft serve. It sounds strange, but tastes oh-so delicious — especially in the sweltering heat! I ordered a twist with salted caramel and “chocolate victory”:

3. Some of my favorite elements of summer (clockwise from top left): sunflowers sold on the street corner, the BEST iced coffee — sugar free vanilla from The Coffee Bean, pretty purple flowers in the park and my BRAND new tube of sunscreen — Walgreens SPF 50 kids. That’s right! Sun protection is so important to me, and it should be to you, too! :-D

4. I capped off my weekend last Sunday with a long-overdue trip to 16 Handles. My choice? Peanut butter froyo with toppings my friend dubbed as “the froyo creation of a fourth grader” — hahaha. Cap’n crunch, pretzel M&M’s and rainbow sprinkles. Doesn’t get much better than that!
