Month in Review: April, 2018

As we approached the beginning of April, I already knew it was going to be a busy month. Our calendar was full of hand written reminders for upcoming events, and while I was excited for each and every one of them, a small amount of anxiety set in. Being an introvert, I recharge with downtime and April did not allow for many quiet evenings. However, looking back I’m thankful for our busy month and all the memories it created.

Right from the start we were in celebration mode! I was lucky to have my birthday fall on Easter this year, so our family gathering was twice as fun. We enjoyed a delicious meal, ate cake, and laughed while we played board games.

After our Easter celebrations, we returned to Milwaukee and were met with snow. Yes, snow! This could have been my breaking point, but I decided to stay positive. This was not an easy choice, but visiting cozy local coffee helped lift my spirits.

With the snow sticking around for a few days, Ian and I took advantage of local indoor activities. We attended the Milwaukee Makers Market at the Discovery World and were surprised by the free exhibits! We wandered through the aquarium, played on a ship, and learned about waste water treatment. It was hard to pull Ian out of the exhibits, but we were celebrating our eight year dating anniversary that night and needed to head off to our dinner reservation.

April was a busy month for birthdays! My Grandma turned 93 this year and a big group of family members got together to celebrate. The afternoon was packed with catching up with cousins, eating wonderful food, and playing outside. (The snow had finally melted!!)

We closed out the month in the best possible way – with a wedding. Two of our close college friends tied the knot and hosted the most beautiful wedding weekend. Ian stood up in the wedding and I got emotional seeing all of our close friends together again in one room. We danced the night away at the reception and took full advantage of the photo booth to snap a few pictures from the night.

Month in Review: August, 2017

August, where did you go?! Between taking a road trip to view the total solar eclipse, saying farewell to our favorite local spots, and moving to Milwaukee, it feels like August slipped away from us. However, looking over the video clips and photos we captured I’m reminded of how much we accomplished last month.

Month in Review: August, 2017

Early in the month we knew we had to savor our time in De Pere. Ian accepted a job that required us to relocate to the Milwaukee area.  Therefore, we quickly jotted down a “farewell bucket list” and we checked items off in-between goodbye parties and boxing up our apartment. One item high up on the list was to put our own love lock on the Sunset Point bridge. Now a small piece of us will always be in De Pere.

While visiting a sunflower field wasn’t on the farewell bucket list, it was one of my summer goals. It was nice to take a break from packing and drive down to Madison to celebrate the August birthdays and dance around the Pope Farm Concervency sunflower field.

From my parents’ house, Ian and I embarked on a 6.5 hour road trip to Hermann, MO. Why, you may ask? To see to total solar eclipse of course! It took a bit of convincing from Ian to get me on board, but it was a breathtaking experience and I’m glad he didn’t stop pestering me to take the trip with him.

Once home from our road trip, there was no denying our time in De Pere was limited. We only had a handful of days left to finish packing and get organized for the move. A few hiccups came along the way, but we are finally settled into our new apartment and I’m looking forward to sharing September’s Month in Review as we start to discover our new neighborhood.

Month in Review: March 2017

March, what a dreary month! Each day I would wake up hungry to see the sun shinning down, but gray skies dominated the weather forecast.  It’s crazy how a series of gloomy days can take a toll on you mentally. Luckily, Ian and I had a few fun days penciled in on the calendar to keep our spirits up!

First on our list was to attend the Showcase of Homes! We drove around town touring new builds and fell in love with bits and pieces of each house. Sadly, I discovered I have expensive taste and was drawn to quartz countertops and hardwood floors. I guess a girl can dream, right?!

Next up on our calendar was the Gaelic Storm concert! There’s nothing like dancing to bagpipes to get you in the holiday spirit! This was our third time seeing them perform, so I think it is safe to say this has become one of our favorite St. Patrick’s day traditions.

As the month came to a close we had a few quiet days at home. I took advantage of this time to deep clean the apartment, clear out my closet, and enjoy one of my favorite pastimes – baking. As the rain pitter pattered on the roof, I preheated the oven and kneaded dough for a batch of cinnamon rolls! I think I finally perfected my recipe, so keep your eyes peeled for the post later this month!
