Month in Review: June, 2018

June, you were a month to remember! Our days were filled with birthday celebrations, summer festivals, a wedding, and exploring new cities. By the end of the month I felt like I needed a nice lie-in, but lazy mornings will have to be saved for a later date. Summer is the time to savor being busy and lean into new experiences. Here are a few of our favorite memories from June.

The month began getting to know our own city better. We are still new to the Milwaukee area and were excited to try out new places to dine during restaurant week. Best part – this event landed on Ian’s birthday weekend! It was the perfect excuse to get dressed up, drive downtown, and indulge in a three course meal.

Shortly after Ian’s birthday celebrations, we were packing our bags for another happy occasion – a wedding! Ian’s cousin was getting married in Scotland and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to catch up with family and toast the happy couple.

Since we were already abroad, we decided to extend our trip to explore a new city – Copenhagen! It was our first time in Scandinavia and it won’t be our last. The city was breathtaking and we fell in love with the Danish culture.

We ended our trip with a quick stop in Paris. Since Ian and I had both been to Paris multiple times, we enjoyed exploring the the quieter spots tucked away in the city. I was teary-eyed a few times during our stay since it felt surreal to share this experience with Ian.

Once back home in Wisconsin, we were thrusted into festival season. On one Saturday alone there were six festivals taking place. I was overwhelmed with our options, but decided to check out the Strawberry Festival in Cedarburg. Ian and I strolled down the the main street looking at craft stalls, eating strawberry short cake, and stopping by the winery for strawberry wine.

We ended the month back in Green Bay! We grabbed dinner with old friends, visited our favorite spots around town and reminisced about our time living in De Pere. Even though we felt like we were melting in the 96 degree heat, we had the best time walking down memory lane.

Paris, je t’aime Strawberry Eton Mess

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. 🌦
