Oh, what a month! I don’t think I ever stopped to catch my breath! May was a busy month at work as well as at home. After spending long hours in front of the computer working on design projects I was tempted to cancel our evening plans, but looking back over our photos, I’m glad we were able to fit in as many memories as we could!
Our first event of the month was Gallery Night! The evening was devoted to showcasing local artists’ work in downtown shops. A free trolley shuttled us across town as we popped in and out of shops. Then we ended the night down by the food trucks to grab dinner and listen to live music.
The warmer weather and longer nights also allowed us to skip the gym a few days in favor of dusting off our bikes and hitting the trails! Growing up we went on a lot of bike rides, so peddling along the wooded path always brings back happy memories.
Towards the end of the month Ian and I loaded up the car and made the familiar road trip down to Madison. It was a packed weekend with campfires, mini golf and singing along to songs at a piano bar. Once we made it home my voice was hoarse from all the singing and laughing!
We closed out the month with a trip to St. Louis. It was my first time visiting the city and we were lucky to have our very own personal tour guide – Ian’s cousin! She is currently living in St. Louis with her husband while she earns her Ph.D. and she was gracious enough to show us around town. Trip highlights included eating breakfast at World’s Fair Donuts and wandering around the Botanical Gardens.
