These weeks are flying by. Right when I get down to the wire, I can see the end of the year in the distance, I scramble trying to tie up lose ends all while ending on a good note. It’s been a busy one, and I am so looking forward to some quiet time. But […]

While I usually like to share some links and suggestions for weekend activities, this one is going to be a bit different. Because at the end of the day, things happen that align your priorities and warrant something else. On Friday, Dillon and I made the easy call to rush home and be with family […]

Our spirits were lifted this weekend. The sun was out and Madison is finally coming out of hibernation. Seriously, it makes me so happy to see all the restaurants with their outdoor furniture again. The little things, people.  Here’s a look at our weekend: Record Store Day- Ever since D got his turntable, we’ve been […]

If I am really honest, sometimes I just want spring to hurry the heck up so summer can get here. Midwest springs already get a bad rap for their chilly beginnings, and it doesn’t help that it’s the last season of the school year. But I really want to be intentional this year, and make […]

Posting this recap pretty late. Just feels like this week is happening faster than I can keep up with. We packed the weekend full, which only added to the craziness of another work week.  Here’s what we were up to: Wedding- We got to shoot my brother-in-law’s wife’s sister’s wedding. Not only was the day […]

Well it was yet another midwest Easter that was all too cold for my liking. But we bundled up and ventured all around the burbs to see the people we love. We drove in Friday, had a relaxing dinner in Logan Square (Reno, you so good), and then packed our weekend full of family and […]

Trying my hand at natural dyed Easter eggs for a third year. I love how imperfect they turn out. Don’t get me wrong though, I still like the store bought bright colors and will probably do a batch of those, too.  But for now, here are some tips on naturally dying eggs. Boil Eggs & […]

Things were just meant to be when we started planning our trip back out west.  With free airline miles, hotel points, and rental car credit, this trip was an easy one to get on the books.  We knew we wanted to go someplace new, so we decided on Portland, Oregon.  The plan for the trip? […]

We took a walk around on a Saturday afternoon and just enjoyed the city as it was in all its cloudy glory.  It wasn’t particularly warm, but for Wisconsin, it was a lovely day. It is officially spring.  The earth is perking up.  I so look forward to fresh blooms and sunshine and brunch outside around […]
