July in Pictures

After settling into our new Princeton home during the first week of July, the month just got busier and crazier from one day to the next!
John was soon off to Chicago to train for his new job (for 2 weeks!), and as I could not bear to be all alone, had my parents drive up for the most wonderful visit!

This is a quick recap of the past month - all images provided by Instagram :)
It was truly a whirlwind of a month and I barely had any time at all to hop on the computer to blog, but I promise I'll be back to a regular blogging schedule very soon!
(John came home yesterday-yipppeeeee!!  And my parents left too - boooooo.)
Now for the photo montage:
