Month in Review: August, 2016

Oh, August. You were good to me. With two family birthdays and our wedding anniversary we had a month packed with celebrations, but surprisingly there wasn’t any cake. That just goes to show you where cake lyes on our list of preferred desserts! Instead we satisfied our sweet craving by roasting s’mores and I was able to check another item off my summer bucket list.

I had the pleasure of working on a few new and exciting design projects this month! I love collaborating with other creatives and can’t wait to share the finished designs in the upcoming weeks. (Stay tuned!) While it’s easy to get lost in a project, I made it a point to leave my desk and take an afternoon walk every day. With scenery like this, these walks quickly became a highlight of my day.

At the beginning of the month, Ian and I packed our bags and drove to Milwaukee for a friend’s wedding. The weekend was filled with twinkle lights, signature cocktails, and lots of laughter. Oh, and did I mention dancing?! The guests invited to this wedding knew how to bust a move which lead to multiple dance-offs throughout the night.

After brunch the next morning, Ian and I took advantage of being in Milwaukee and wandered around the Third Ward. We ended up on the rivers edge watching boats pass by and soaking in the sun. Milwaukee is a beautiful city, and it was nice to take a moment to reflect over the love-filled weekend before we got back in the car to embark on our journey home.

After a few days to recuperate from our wedding weekend adventures, Ian and I donned our green and gold for a preseason Packer game! I’m not a huge sports fan, but I can get behind anything that serves hot chocolate. So while it drizzled during the second half of the game, I was snuggled inside my rain coat sipping my drink. Overall, I would say the outing was a success!

Toward the end of the month Ian and I made the trip to Madison to celebrate the August birthdays in my family! We had an eventful weekend packed with golfing, going out for dinner, and an impromptu Olympic games competition. Lots of laughs were shared and it was hard to pack up and head home on Sunday.

Ian and I ended the month by spending a rainy afternoon at the local art fair. Nestled under our umbrellas, we strolled between vendors daydreaming about how we will decorate our future home. We picked up a few business cards before settling down and listening to the performers on the main stage. Once our shoes squished with every step, we decided it was time to call it a day and head home to dry off.

I hope you all had a wonderful August and enjoyed this glimpse inside our month.

Month in Review: May 2016

It’s been a few months since I ended my “Friday Favorites” series, and to be honest, I’ve started to miss the little snapshots of our life I used to shared on the blog. So after much thought, I’ve decided to start a new series called “Month in Review.” This way I won’t be cluttering your blog feed with weekly behind-the-scenes posts, but once a month you can catch up with what Ian and I have been up to. I hope you enjoy!

May started off with an exciting weekend trip to New Orleans. We spent our time listening to jazz, wandering around the Garden District, and savoring delicious Southern food.

My sister also graduated from the UW-Madison School of Educated this month! She is going to be an amazing teacher and the whole family gathered together on campus to celebrate this milestone in her life. It was definitely a chilly day though (it even hailed during the ceremony!) so we were all a bit blue by the end of the day!

Ian and I decided to take advantage of our weekend in Madison so we booked tickets to see The Lion King at the Overture Center. This was our second time seeing the show and we both agreed that it was just as magical as the first time!

The following weekend Ian and I were back in the Madison area to celebrate my high school friend’s wedding. I can’t express how lovely it was to catch up with so many childhood friends and dance the night away.

I’ve secretly (well, maybe not so secretly) always wanted to be a ballerina, so I tend to drag Ian to a few ballets every year. Luckily, Ian doesn’t put up too much of a fuss and he even surprised me with tickets to see Alice. We had to battle UWM graduation traffic to get to the performing arts center, but it was all worth it to see such a beautiful ballet. The choreography and sets were outstanding!

For the past week the weather channel had been reporting a rainy Memorial Day weekend. I had been planning on soaking up the sun over the long weekend, so to say I was bummed with the idea of being cooped up inside would be an understatement. Luckily, the weather patterned shifted and we were blessed with a few afternoons of sunshine. Ian and I took full advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed a picnic by the lake, strolled along the city deck, and attended the local firework show.

I hope you all had a wonderful month! If you liked this post, please give it a “like.” Then I will continue to share little snippets of our day-to-day life each month!
