For months I’d known that we had a wedding coming up in the rural mountains of Montana. I’d seen the pictures of the mountains on the bride-to-be’s Instagram. One of which she simply captioned “The picture doesn’t do it justice.” Yeah yeah, the mountains are gorgeous, take a pic etc etc. But she’s SO right!
After leaving the Isle of Palms, my very first stop in downtown Charleston, was a massage appointment at The Heart of Charleston spa. Nothing like working all those knots out of my muscles after a 15 hour drive and before another 15 hour drive. What a perfect start to a couple days of sightseeing in
After my first Wisconsin Winter in Stay at home mom life, one of our longest winters, where I may have lost my mind somewhere in the Henesy House, we had to get away for a vacation! And when Grandma can’t come to you, you go to Grandma. Luckily, Grandma and Grandpa Henesy live in a
Recently I took a trip back down to Chicago to visit the pop up experience The Happy Place. It’s basically a blogger’s paradise. Instagramland if you will. A warehouse installation with several different rooms full of fun and colorful photo ops! Obviously, I had to check it out before it’s last day, September 3rd, 2018.
OH this darling dusty blue dress for our date night in Door County! (okay that was a little heavy on the alliteration…) But for real, this dress!!! I bought this as my birthday present to myself during a quick shopping trip the day before we left for our getaway. I went to SoHo Boutique,
Gregory and I were married at the end of August 2015, during the few months out of the year when the Midwest weather is nice and warm. (Full wedding post here!) Might not be a time to fly away to a tropical honeymoon. We wanted to wait for when we really needed a break
All Things Lavender Festival 2017 This past weekend my birthday wish to go to the Lavender Fest came true! We spent a lovely few days up in Door County at our favorite bed and breakfast. And to celebrate my 36th trip around the sun I want to attend the Lavender Festival on Washington Island and
~Lauren Exploring a Lavender Farm~ Last summer my husband and I did some exploring of our new home state and drove up to Door County, Wisconsin. We found the loveliest bed and breakfast called the Double S Lodge (See my B&B pics here). Then we ventured even further north to Washington Island, WI. On this
~First Fall Flannel~ A few weeks ago, I woke up on our last day in Door County, WI and there it was, the first Fall chill in the air. What better time to bust out my first Fall flannel shirt for the season? I had already started shopping for some bump style and picked up
~Northern Woods in a New Dress~ My first flash of 2016 Fall Fashion, was in the Northern Woods of Wisconsin wearing this new dress. Whether vacationing in my home state or abroad, I always like to shop for a some new clothes before my trip. I think it makes those days on the vacation just
~Double S Lodge in Door County~ This past week, Greg and I drove up to Door County for our summer vacation getaway. After scouring the lodging options around the northern Wisconsin peninsula, I came upon the most adorable bed and breakfast, the Double S Lodge in Sister Bay. Not only was the food fantastic, the
~Lauren Exploring~ A couple of winters ago, when Chicago stayed single-digits for weeks on end, we decided we needed to fly south and escape the frigid Midwest. Wanting to check out the Caribbean while not spending too much time in the air, we decided on Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. (Sidenote: SO happy
