Taking an Extended Vacation

Happy Wednesday, folks! Who else still is in holiday mode? This gal sure is! That’s exactly why I’m taking an extended vacation this week.

Taking an Extended Vacation
Ryan actually is on vacation this week and through the weekend, so we plan to take advantage of the time to its fullest! We already spent last weekend at his family’s lake house and hosted my brother yesterday for an afternoon holiday cookout. There’s lots more on the agenda this week before we head to Chicago to see Maren Morris and Sam Hunt in concert Saturday night. I CAN’T WAIT.

That said, I’m taking a few days off from the blog. It’s time to get outside and enjoy all that summer has to offer! I’ll be sharing some of our shenanigans over on Instagram, so make sure to follow along.

Enjoy the rest of the week! Talk to you next week!

Also check out 5 things I want to do this summer.

  • 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
  • #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?
