Picnic in the Park

by Jessica Sturdy on July 7, 2014

I truly can’t believe the 4th of July came and went so quickly! Kind of depressing, no? I spent the long weekend in Chicago and it was absolutely amazing to spend time with my closest friends, but more on that to come.

Today is all about a Picnic in the Park! Having a picnic in Central Park was on my Summer Bucket List so I coordinated a little get-together with a few of my girlfriends a few weeks ago. Before it got so disgustingly hot, thankfully!

Lauren, Mackenzie, Hallie, and I met at Central Park pretty early on a Saturday morning to find a good spot in the grass. We sipped on a little bit of champagne (oops), had a french baguette with a cheese spread, and lots & lots of fruit! We lounged in the sun long after the food was gone. You seriously can’t beat spending time outdoors with the best company. I feel beyond fortunate to have so many inspiring friends in my life!

ps: I couldn’t resist posting this candid snap… This was taken just as I popped off the champagne cork and before champagne started pouring everywhere. Oops!

So cute! Park picnics are on my summer bucket list too, and I finally had my first over the weekend. It wasn’t nearly as adorable as yours, but still fun :)

Such and adorable picnic! I’m considering one this weekend for my Hubs b-day. Although I’d have to make it a bit more manly this is a great start!
