Weekend Recap Vol. 2

This weekend I channelled my inner bee and was SUPER busy. Because….*drumroll please*…. LOGAN AND I MOVED into our new place. We lived together in Spain over the course of last year (we’re seasoned roomies), but we had three other roommates. So this move is super exciting because it’s our first place with just the two of us *yay* and it’s absolutely wonderful! Seriously guys, I am so in love with our little home. We still need a lot of furniture and little decorations and lots of little fix ups, but once it’s put together I’ll definitely share it here.

Other major¬†minor¬†weekend adventure was a quick (see: 3 hour) trip to the beach. If you haven’t heard, summer in Chicago is actually the best. There’s a beach, sunshine, and a nice breeze to cool you off – not to mention the 1 billion festivals going on every weekend (this weekend was Lolla). Well this Friday we (my siblings and I) took to option 1, and spent an entire afternoon acting like little penguins and plunging into the chilly waters of Lake Michigan.

As you can tell, this weekend was another great one for the books *cue happy dance*!
