Things I Like Vol. 60

July 18, 2018

The above photo was taken at the adorable CōV Edina over the weekend. Their patio was so cute and brunch was delish. They even have complimentary cinnamon rolls that were obviously amazing. If you're in the Twin Cities definitely check it out! Last weekend was such a good one. I had plenty of time to hangout at home and relax with my book but I also had a delightful afternoon seeing RBG (so so good) and having rosé al fresco with a good friend. Then Sunday my sister and I brunched at the aforementioned adorable restaurant followed by some shopping. The perfect weekend if you ask me. I am itching for it to be the weekend again because Mark moves here for good on Saturday. Can't wait to see him. My week is thankfully flying by as I feel like I'm starting to get into the groove of things at work so I am all-around just the happiest girl!

Now, let's do this Things I Like post!

Our Wedding: Stationary

July 16, 2018

Hello hello! Today I am devoting a whole post to our wedding stationary, because it was THAT GOOD. I think I've mentioned it before but my amazing wedding planner Emily and her friend Britinee own their own stationary business called The Making 89. They are so talented and were such a joy to work with! I am a particular person and wasn't finding what I wanted in the way of stationary so they came to my rescue to design a custom suite for us and it turned out even better than I could have hoped. If you're looking for any custom stationary, whether it's for a wedding or just a beautiful handmade card, they're your gals!

Things I Like Vol. 59

July 11, 2018

Hope you had a wonderful post 4th of July weekend! I spent my weekend up north with my family at the cabin and enjoyed a couple days of swimming, eating, reading and relaxing with family. I didn't take any time off last week but it sure was nice having that random day off in the middle of the week, wasn't it? I vote to institute that every week ;)

Recent Reads Vol. 17

July 6, 2018

It has been a minute since I last shared what I read so I've got seven books to share with you today! On my previous commute I was able to take a shuttle and really loved having a built in 1.5 hours of reading every day. Now, however, I have to drive to work so I'm going to have to make more of a conscious effort to carve out reading time. Wish me luck!

Travel Diary: London

July 2, 2018

Oh, London! Definitely my favorite city that I've been to. Mark and I were lucky enough to spend five days in London a few weeks ago and we had such a good time. If you've been reading for a long time (5+ years) then you'll remember that I studied abroad in London back in 2013. I became absolutely smitten with the city during my summer there and couldn't wait to come back.

 So last year when I was perusing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets (as one does) and saw that you had to buy them at least a year in advance I started to float the idea of a trip the following year to London. There were some pretty cheap seats so we figured if we didn't make the trip we'd only be out $80. Luckily we were able to make it happen and I'm just so happy that we went  together. It was Mark's first time and while I'm no local it was still fun to show him around the places that I lived and studied and drank Pimm's :) keep reading to see more of our trip!
