Checking In …


Hi, hello! I’m here, I’m alive!

All I can say is October has proved to be one busy, exciting (and stressful!) month. Between celebrating two years of marriage, vacationing in Puerto Rico for a week, being sick the entire week post-vacation, and then jumping into bridesmaid duties for my cousin’s wedding, the past few weeks have been a blur. 

While I had every intention of getting back into the groove this week, I’m going to continue my unplanned hiatus and take the next few days to catch up, unwind, and enjoy this unseasonably warm fall weather we currently are experiencing. I promise regular programming will be back in action next week, including a recap of our trip and a look at what I received in my second StitchFix!
As always, thank you for your understanding and sticking with me. You still can find me over on Snapchat (msinthemidwest) to keep up with the latest in life. xo

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft
  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram

@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

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
