Month Through My Lens: June 2014

IMG_7890
Hello everyone! Long time no blog! Sorry for the pause in posts. Life has been jam packed these last two months. Between work, vacations, and life in general, J and I have had a full plate. The largest reason I have been absent on the blog is J and I had to pack up our life in Pennsylvania for a new adventure in New Jersey! J accepted a job at Rutgers University, so we made the move to NJ. In less than a month we totally relocated and are now surrounded by boxes and bubble wrap as we make our new home feel like home.

So, to make up for lost time, let’s rewind and I’ll show you what my June looked like. Enjoy the photos!

We took a trip to Virginia Beach, VA to visit some friends and play in a beach Ultimate Frisbee tournament. This photo is in the tunnel on the way to VA.

Dinner at Zola

For my birthday dinner, my husband and I celebrated at Zola. It is one of the nicer restaurants in State College, PA – a town filled with restaurants targeting college students (and their budgets). I took some photos of our meal. Mind you I took the photos using my iPhone, so quality is not up to par with my SLR, but you get the idea.

We started off with some delicious cocktails: Hendricks martini for me, and a Basil Basil for J which included bourbon, basil, and ginger beer. It was delicious and I will definitely be recreating it at home.

To go with our cocktails, we shared the crabcake with caper remoulade and mango.
