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.
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!
