Hey friends! ☺️

So last weekend I randomly got a call from my cousin who lives about an hour south of the Twins Cities, asking if I wanted to go to the Renaissance Festival with her.  I've never been before but I have always wanted to go so I got ready and she picked me and my sister up for a day filled with magic and lots of mead!

If you have no idea what a Renaissance Festival is, it's basically an outdoor festival which recreates the renaissance times for fun!  People dress up as fairies, elves, Kings, or other made-up mystical creature and it's a way to come together and show your creative side.  There's loads of cool vendors that sell things like swords, jewelry, pottery, fantasy clothes, and so much more!  There were a whole bunch of cute little shops that we just perused the whole day. 

Along with that, THE FOOD.  The food was sooooo good.  I got a soup bread bowl (which was delish!), then we shared fried pickles, then I maybe had 1 (or 4) glasses of mead, and to finish it off, an ice cream treat.  Pretty good if I say so myself.

There was also fun events like the corgi races and jousting. So many cute corgi butts running and the jousting was pretty fun too.  All in all a pretty 10/10 day.

If you're feeling like you want a fun time, I highly recommend the Ren Fest!

Hey friends! ☺️

Thought I would share some photos I took the last couple of weeks.  Some of my fav memories. 💙
One of my most favorite things to do in the fall:  Go to the Apple Orchard (this one is the Pine Tree Apple Orchard in WBL, MN).  My boyfriend and I stopped by there last weekend and picked up a bushel of apples, apple donuts, a cutre apple pot holder, and some apple syrup - which I am very excited to try!

A panorama of the St. Croix river in Stillwater.  Such a fun place to explore in the Summer!

If you ever find yourself in White Bear Lake, make sure to stop by Cup And Cone (or Cup N' Cone as it is most likely called by us locals).  Some of the best ice cream and treats!

My s'more latte from @CafeAstoria in St. Paul.  Comes with a giant toasted marshmallow and full of delicious chocolatey goodness.

The sky on the way into work one morning. 

My parent's kittens, Nemo and Mocha, who were VERY fascinated with the ceiling fan.  I'm obsessed with their little faces.  SO CUTE!

What have you been up to recently?

Stay cozy!

Hey friends!

So....I'm back!

It's been such a long time since I've sat down and written on this ol' little blog.  I've been writing on this blog since 2014 (which means 5 YEARS!!) which is crazy to think how much my life has changed since then!  I have taken a little hiatus for the first part of the month, which has been for a variety of reasons (moving, job, and general life things), but now I feel 100% excited to come back and I'm excited to share all the new things with you. ☺️

Stay cozy!
