Links & Things

Happy Thursday! I’ve decided to switch things up for what used to be Things That Thrill Me Thursdays, and instead go with a more simplified, streamlined approach to share my favorite links and things from the week. The old format took me a long time to put together, and frankly, I was just tired of it. I’m all about efficiency these days. On that note, I’m off to my hometown for an overnight trip to do some early holiday shopping with my mom – I might even sneak in a Portillo’s hot dog (or two). Have a wonderful weekend!

  • To my #foreverweddingdate: thanks for always standing by my side, letting me dress you up once in a while, and posing for pictures outside my childhood home like it’s high school graduation day. I love you so much. 😂❤️ #marriedlife #fridayfeels
  • 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
