Summertime Scents

Happy Monday, all! I’ve always had a strong sense of smell, and I often associate specific smells and fragrances with memorable moments or a special place.

These three scents have been my go-to rotation throughout this entire summer – this one with it’s fun, slight-fruity scent is what I reach for when I’m out running errands or if we’re embarking on a fun daytime adventure, such as mini-golf or a day of shopping, while this one and this one, with their overall light, clean, beachy aroma, have been reserved for special occasions, including weekday date nights and happy hour on an outdoor patio by the lake.

This summer has been one of the busiest we’ve experienced, but these scents make me smile when I think about all the memories, both with friends and family and the quieter moments just between Ryan and I, that we’ve created throughout the past few months.

What are your go-to summertime scents?

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
