the summer of 2019: my bucket list.

fall is and will always be my favorite season, but after some long cold months, summer comes in as a close second. i love what summer brings…sunshine, cookouts, adventure.

this summer is going to be different. it’s going to be better because i’m spending it with people who make me feel alive, and that’s the way life should be. it may include a whole lot of netflixing and just being at home, but that’s what i look forward to the most. a care-free summer with my favorite people.

so cheers, cheers to the best summer yet!

a few of these things are planned, and some are just some realistic, manageable ideas that i’ve put down on my summer bucket list that i’d like to do:

  • be creative – i haven’t spent a lot of time this year doing what i love most: creating. i hope to get some time in this summer to paint.
  • visit a zoo – always one of my girl’s favorites.
  • go camping – tenting, campfires, and stargazing. that’s been on my list for years! i want to make it happen this summer.
  • have a picnic – pack a lunch and go enjoy the sun. i’ve never experienced this. i want to.
  • messy twister – paint and some summer cocktails. why not?
  • the obvious: go to a cubs game – and lots of them.
  • go to a drive-in movie – something that has always been on my bucket list and still have yet to cross off.
  • hit up the madison farmer’s market one saturday morning – always a favorite of mine!

what about you? what do you have planned this summer?

september favorites.

crazy to believe that september has almost come and gone already. september is easily my favorite month, and for so many reasons…the summer heat is transitioning into cool, autumn days and finally a reason to wear all my over-sized, comfy clothes.

it was a slightly busier month for me as i spent time with some friends, volunteered with work for the day of caring, and ended the month with a trip down south to visit my grandma for her birthday.

i’ve rounded up a few things that i love from this month to share with you; a few new, a few old:

joggers

joggers

where have these been all my life? they’re insanely soft and so comfortable! my husband bought me these ones from jane.com in the charcoal gray color and now I want them in every. single. color.

milk and honey

i’ve really enjoyed reading poetry this month, and when looking for new poets, i stumbled across rupi kaur and found her best-selling book.  i purchased it on amazon and it was perfect reading for my long road trip to missouri.

apple pencil case

Case

i carry my ipad and apple pencil with me everywhere. i wanted something slim to keep my pencil in so it didn’t get damaged being tossed in my bag. i tried this case out from amazon and am in love with it. it’s small, has multiple storage spaces, and is big enough to store my head phones in as well.

liam and company

i order a lot from jane.com, and i mean a lot. a lot. most recently i’ve been ordering a lot of my wardrobe from there and noticed that a lot of the clothes that i liked were from the same boutique…liam and co. their clothes are all super adorable, comfortable, and very affordable!
