Fall Break at the Lake

Oh Michigan, she steals my heart every fall! I’v said it before and I’ll say it again but the lake in the fall is truly a piece of heaven on earth. The crisp breeze off the shore and the beautiful sunsets can really make a girl’s heart content. So as you can imagine, going up to the lake for fall break is easily one of my favorite family traditions! Although we have been coming up to the lake since I was[Read more]

Finally Fall!

Today is a day for celebration! It’s the first day of fall, or Autumn if you prefer! (And in my case I do haha!)

500 Days of Summer

Today is officially the first day of summer! And although I’v been out of school since late April, I’m more excited than ever for backyard picnics, breezy beaches, and endless scoops of ice cream!

Every year summer holds the promise of new memories and new adventures; the music is louder, the drinks are colder, and the nights are longer. Luckily,[Read more]

The Reading Nook: All Fall Down

With the end of classes in sight, I’m getting more and more excited for summer! Among all the things I can’t wait to do once classes are finished, I may be most excited about having more time to read! Over Spring Break, I made an impromptu trip to Barnes and Noble and accidentally spent over an hour browsing the shelves. I stumbled across one particularly good find! One of my New Year’s Resolutions was also to read more books, which is something I[Read more]

A Nashville Daycation

Although the beach and sunshine were calling my name this Spring Break, I sadly didn’t make it down to Florida like I normally do. I decided to spend some much needed time simply relaxing and doing nothing at home. (Which meant a lot of baking and reading! Stay tuned!) I did, however, go with some of my best gal pals down to Nashville for a day and what a treat this was! I feel the need to take a second[Read more]
