• Life Update & July Preview

    It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, and I really REALLY don’t like that. Since I finished graduate school, there have been a number of changes (all good) and it’s just taking some time to get used to my new schedule and routine. I’m sure you all can relate to that. I’m not going to lie, I am not and have never been a fan of change. However, change is good and we all have to embrace it instead of fear it. Now that I finished grad school, I am working at a marketing/ad agency as a content & social media strategist and I am absolutely loving it. It’s a new…

With the sun shining and the warm weather upon us, what better way to enjoy it than to spend time outside? To better enjoy summertime, here are some free and fun summer date ideas that you will love! Picnic One of my favorite dates (spring, summer OR fall) is a picnic! I love picnics because they’re so simple but so cute and fun. This summer, go on a picnic!

  • Friday Favorites

    Hi everyone! It has been one hectic week, and it’s only getting busier! Packing, unpacking and moving is not an easy task but it is so exciting! I have a few Friday Favorites that I want to share with you today (and preview future favorites, too)! 1. Shakespeare Last night, we made time in our busy schedules to go see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I love Shakespeare and this show was incredible! It was such a nice break from working and packing and it left me feeling refreshed. It’s SO important to take breaks in your busy schedule and relax. 2.

  • Hello, August!

    How is it AUGUST already? You may have heard many people complain about August, calling it the “Sunday” of summer.

Here are a few ways to make the start of the month great! To Do List Check off items on your summer to do list! What do you want to do before summer ends? As I mentioned in my blog Fourth In Fontana,  do what you want to do even if you feel like you don’t have time in your busy schedule. Go…

  • Fourth In Fontana

    This last weekend was my first 4th of July in Fontana, Wisconsin! Something about the 4th of July always makes my heart flutter a bit. It’s exciting, romantic and fresh. Sarah (Nic’s sister) and I were talking about how the 4th of July can either be considered the halfway point of summer or just the beginning of summertime adventures. This got me thinking. There are always different ways to look at days and situations. July 4th may mean that summer is halfway over, but it also means there are many adventures to look forward to. It’s a reminder to do what you want to do even if you feel like you have no…
