Are you guys as into the Fourth of July as much as we are? John and I started dating the weekend of the Fourth. I will never forget watching fireworks at Navy Pier in Chicago while holding his hand. Ever since that day, we have celebrated what used to be our anniversary and most of the time with a little too much wine, coordinating swimsuits, and lots of sunshine.

30 Week Update | Baby on the Way

30 weeks. Sounds like nothing in the grand scheme of things but let me tell you it’s a milestone I’ve been personally waiting to hit my calendar. I never understood the weeks of pregnancy until becoming pregnant. When women say, “Oh, I’m 16 weeks," and say it with more enthusiasm and joy than anyone knew to be possible, I thought why the drama! Can't you tell me how many months that is, please? But holy cow, the pregnancy world is on another level!!! Makes so much sense to me now that were in it! Every single week is extremely crucial in your pregnancy and your babies journey to this earth.

Happy Cabiner Shirt Collaboration | Champagne + Macaroons x Sota Clothing

My favorite time of year has arrived! It's the official launch of cabin season. I still remember my first cabin trip north with John, and it's still what I most look forward to since moving to Minnesota. I like to joke that it’s the Midwest’s version of going to the Hampton's. Everyone piles in their cars and heads north on the weekends and Memorial Day marks the beginning of this most cherished time of year.
