Girls weekend.

Last weekend my sister’s, cousin, and I went on a weekend getaway to Mackinac Island, MI, aka one of our favorite places. I don’t have much to say about the weekend except that the weather was perfect, we made new memories, and had one last “hurrah” before the bride-to-be gets married :) I’ll let the pictures show you the rest…

Till next time Mackinaw…




coffee date.

Grab some coffee, or a PSL, or some wine, and let’s have a chat, mmkay?icedcoffee.aspx

If we were having coffee today, I would have to make a comment on how it is possibly already October. Wasn’t it like just July?

If we were having coffee today I would say I’m going to Mackinaw in FOUR days. It’s been over a year since I’ve last been, so I’m excited.

If we were having coffee today I would say there is less than 21 days until Taylor’s new album, 1989. Words cannot describe my excitement.

If we were having coffee today I would say I’m not quite ready for cold weather. I am ready for boots and scarves and oversized sweaters though ;)92c79f2b8fae6bdfdc580b7f4e328237

If we were having coffee today I would say I’m in need of some fall candles. I missed the last time Bath and Body Works had them on sale, so I’m hoping they go on sale again soon!IMG_1272

If we were having coffee today I would tell you that there are only 19 more days until my sister gets married. OMG. Time slow down a little bit pleaseandthankyou.

Hope you enjoyed your coffee ;) Make it a great one!
