Slow Living in Summer

Slow Living in Summer

This summer has been amazing – the early sunrises and the late nights. We traveled quite a bit during our summer months, but that’s not to say we didn’t enjoy some needed rest. I adopted this notion of slow living for this summer. Less “stuff”, more experiences and more moments with family and friends. During […]

Last weekend was Shake the Lake, Madison’s pre July 4th extravaganza. The night was filled with friends, food, live music, and an over-the-top firework […]

Lucille

Lucille

Lucille opened up just over a week ago here in Madison.  The location is perfect.  Right off the square, and walking distance from our apartment.  This kind of place is totally our vibe.  Farm tables, funky booths and chairs, killer light fixtures, live music, and great food.  The windows and doors open up on both […]
