Currently

Uh. So. Hi? Yup, still alive over here, just loving the internet-less life a bit more than I expected! I’m in the process of getting back into the flow of “real life” with real responsibilities, a steady schedule and a place to park my car for more than one night at a time. Having a ton of free time has been surreal but I am honestly looking forward to more coordinated chaos with a some higher expectations for my productivity. No promises on my ability to be very good at meeting any expectations but it will be nice knowing they are there, waiting for me! Until then, I’m going to keep doing what I do best…currently…

Chasing Fall Colors

Guess what?! Fall is here! The mornings are cold, the afternoons are toasty and the trees are getting yellow. Oh, the beauty of fall. Of course, the spiders are moving INTO my room and the tree out front is dropping it’s annoying pods all over the yard…but I’m going to go ahead and focus on the good parts of fall. Like how it’s time for the boots + leggings + scarf outfits to become a staple in my life!

Fall is the one time I really miss Wisconsin. In Wisconsin the fall colors are stunning – from red, to yellow, to orange, to purple, to… The rolling hills are covered in colorful trees. I’d walk through frost tipped grass in the morning and be stripped down to a tank top come afternoon. The bugs were finally gone and even the midday heat was bearable without humidity. And as a farm girl most of my fall memories revolve around moving calves/cows to their winter homes, winterizing the water troughs and claiming the “good” blaze orange layers before hunting season comes around. It was busy on the farm, but the good kind of busy, the excited kind of busy.

Wisconsin Wedding Weekend

I spent the last weekend back in Wisconsin. Yup, I voluntarily went to Wisconsin in July where the humidity usually has you sweat while taking a cold shower. I had a good excuse, one of my closest friends was getting married! I still hated her a little for thinking an outdoor wedding in July would be a good idea…but she was right. Turns out Wisconsin kind of loves her – the temperatures were reasonable and the storm clouds worked extra hard to block the sun and hold back their rain! It was a pretty perfect day!

It was a beautiful weekend with lots of dresses, flowers, photos and smiles! Of course, I have very little proof of any of this because I failed miserable at taking photos. I was far too busy trying to convince her friends I was normal enough to talk to!
