• Forever Newlyweds

    I can’t believe the last time I blogged was a month before the big day, and here we are a little over 2 months later, MARRIED! We got married on September 28, 2019 in Egg Harbor, WI on the most beautiful fall day. The days leading up to our wedding were cold, cloudy and rainy. I kept checking the weather forecast like clock work, and it kept saying it was supposed to rain on our wedding day. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have minor freak outs. Quick tip here – people will tell you not to check the weather forecast before your big day. I’m going to…

  • 10 Simple and Easy Ways to Spread Kindness

    Today, I want to focus on something I find very important  – kindness. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. I’ve talked about the importance of kindness plenty of times on my blog, but today, I want to focus on ways we can spread kindness. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE hearing about random acts of kindness.

Doesn’t that just melt your heart? With that being said, here are 10 simple and…

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your summer and taking advantage of the summer weather. It’s almost August… and before we know it, it will be fall. I know, I know, it’s still July. But I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t excited for fall, the crisp leaves and the cool air. Don’t get me wrong – I still love summer just as much. Any Nicholas Sparks fans out there?! Well, I am a HUGE fan of his. Recently, I finished reading The Longest Ride, and boy did I loved it. Once I finished the book, I immediately wanted to read it again and again… and again. That’s one of…

Yesterday, my friend Kayley and I decided to go on a happy hour cruise with the Milwaukee Boat Line– and what a wonderful idea that was. The cruise was 90 minutes and it was absolutely AMAZING.

The…

  • Nic Answers Questions About Me

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a great start to your day and enjoying the summer weather. Soak it in, ladies and gents… “halloween costume ideas” is already trending on Pinterest. About a year ago, I read a blog on Simply Nicole (one of my favorite bloggers) and she had her husband answer random questions about her. She wrote down what he said and added her own commentary. I thought it was such a fun idea, and decided (almost a year later) to do that with Nic. I found some questions online and used some of hers, and asked them to Nic and wrote down his answers and my…
