someone told me it's all happening at the zoo.

This summer, life has been really busy. I've been juggling an awful lot of responsibilities and sometimes it seems impossible to tear myself away from work. The good thing? I have people in my life who are supportive - and who know exactly when I need a break.

Which is exactly why my boyfriend decided to take me to the zoo a little while ago. It was such a fun (but exhausting!) day. Instead of spending a beautiful Saturday working, I spent it with my favourite person....and a ton of super cute animals!

The weather was crazy hot and the zoo was packed, but it was definitely worth it. We had fun taking silly pictures and oohing and awwwing over the different types of animals. Unfortunately, we didn't make it through the entire zoo. (That place is massive and it was super hot out!) But we did see a lot and it was a really special day. I was sad once it was over....back to reality again!

I am so grateful to have days like this. And I'm even more grateful to have someone in my life who knows when I need them! Here are some of my favourite pictures from the day:

When was the last time you went to the zoo?

  5. How fun! I've actually been promising my girls that i'd take them soon but haven't gotten around to it. It's been so dang muggy here in Jersey! I'm thinking early Fall would be an ideal time to go! You totally just inspired me! xo Carla

  6. The zoo is always a good de-stresser! That's where I go sometimes when I feel like I need a break from the business of life xo

  7. What a good boyfriend you have Shannon, and I so love to look at the White Tigers! I wanted to go this Summer to the zoo, but we didn't get a chance unfortunately. :( Thanks for stopping by dear and have a nice weekend! xx Pip

  10. The animals are adorable! I don't know if I like zoos are not, to be honest. I mean, there are awful zoos where humans dont take care of the animals at all. But this one seems great! The last time I went to the zoo was a long time ago, but I enjoyed it so much. :) It would be funny if I went back again, after all this time haha!
