One Last Hurrah

Today is the first day of school here at IU.  Campus has awoken from its lazy summer and is swarming with excited and lost students.  It’s been a fun day for me, meeting students that I’ve been working with over the past year through their applications and auditions.  Today is also Hank’s first day back to school for the semester.  We are sad to see the summer leave and with it so much time together, but we’re excited that this is another step to the awesome walk across the stage that ropes in that diploma!  So last week we decided to have one last summer adventure together.  We took off for Indianapolis!

You didn't know Indy was so wild, did you?;)  The Indianapolis Zoo has some amazing exhibits that are really spacious and beautiful for the animals.  We felt like kids as we hopped on their roller coaster and walked around eating frozen lemonade.  Then we toured their spacious White River Gardens.  The below pictures are Hank's beautiful photography.

We concluded the day by tasting a piece of Hank’s favorite show Diners, Drive In’s, and Dives.  The host of the show, Guy Fieri, has visited Indianapolis several times.  We had just watched his show where he visits 3 Sisters Cafe up in Indy, and their gourmet sandwiches were just calling out to us.  And they were A..MA…ZING!!  Check out the episode.  The lady in the show who’s walking around calling everyone her babies and sweets, she was our waitress.  She totally called us her dovesJ 

So that was our last hurrah for the summer.  And for you runners out there, I’m running my end of the summer 5k on September 24 in the 12th Annual Hoosiers Outrun Cancer race.  So if you’re in the area, come join me!


  1. I love all the pictures, Michelle! I took little T there this past spring--so fun!

    We're sad to see summer flit away as well, but the start of a new year is filled with so many possibilities too. Trusting you guys have an amazing year. :)

    Blessings, friend!
