Vacation, All I Ever I Wanted
Is this the coldest summer on record? It’s mid-August and feels like fall. All summer I’ve been looking forward to summer, but it hasn’t really come here in Chicago. But! Today we are heading to Michigan for a good old fashioned summer vacation with my family, and it combines a few of my favorite things: birthdays, family and vacation! Yes, I am turning 30 tomorrow, and I am going to spend it on the beach, grilling out and possibly with a rum bomb in hand. I love going to Lake Michigan because it’s so laid back and reminds me of summers growing up. We roast s’mores, hang out at the lake and play paddle ball, go on walks, collect beach glass…ahhhhh. Also there are a lot of great antique stores and wineries. I am excited to have a week off, especially after spending the last week with a stomach bug. My 20s were wonderful, but there are amazing things to look forward to. Cheers to a great year ahead :)
I’ll be back next week with a recap – have a great one!
