Month in Review: May, 2018

I have a feeling when I look back on 2018, May will be my favorite month. Every weekend was filled with gatherings with friends and family – and my sister and I snuck in a quick trip to New York City. See what I mean?! This month is going to be hard to top.

I kicked off the month in the best way possible – a family party! My cousin is tying the knot this summer and everyone got together for her bridal shower. While I don’t have shortage of cousins, this was one of the few bridal showers I’ve attended. So I was surprised when my team came in second for the popular toilet paper dress competition. (Clearly, I had low expectations seeing as I was proud of second place!) Once the party wrapped up I was off to spend the night at Ian’s grandma’s house to enjoy time with his family before the weekend was over.

Not soon after our return to Milwaukee, I was pulling my bag back out and packing for New York. My sister and I had played around with the idea of booking a trip to NYC together and finally took the plunge! We battled with rain the entire trip, but we made the most of this time together and came home with the best memories.

Month in Review: May, 2018

After some time to recuperate we were back in celebration mode for Memorial Day weekend. Ian and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and spent most of our time outdoors. Surprisingly, after long afternoons walking along the lakeshore, grilling out, and playing tennis neither of us got a tan. Oh well! It was still a wonderful weekend and we were thankful to catch up with good friends and meet my sister’s new puppy, Poppy!

On a sunny day you will find me in the fields. ✨ Growing up on a dairy farm in the countryside I spent a lot of time outside. After school my siblings and I would feed calves, head inside for dinner and a few hours of homework, then trek back down to the barn help with milking shifts. It didn’t matter if it was blazing hot in the middle of summer or frigid cold in the depth of winter, we were outside. ✨ Now that I’ve moved off the farm, life looks a lot different. Being a graphic designer requires sitting in front of a computer for hours on end, but my soul aches to be outside. Luckily, I’m able to schedule breaks throughout the day to step away from my computer screen and enjoy nature. This allows me to get some fresh air, reconnect with my creativity, and return to my work with fresh eyes. ✨ What do you do during the day to hit the refresh button?
Woke up with a pep in my step! I couldn’t believe it was already Thursday…until Ian kindly reminded me it is actually Wednesday. In an instant, I went from being gleeful to feeling like the cruel universe added a day to my week. To keep my spirits high, I chose to treat myself to a mid-day coffee break at @anodynecoffee. Double tap if coffee is the magical elixir that can turn your day around ☕️🙌💕
Easing into the work week after an incredible Packer win last night! My day is full of chai tea, calming Spotify playlists, and an afternoon walk to recenter and get my mind ready for a busy week.
Cozying up with the fall @magnolia journal issue while I wait for the rain showers to pass. 🌦
