Life Lately

The benefit of regularly posting on this blog is that it forces me to organize my photos. I had 600 photos to sort through since my last post. So, here’s a little snapshot of what I’ve been up to the past month or so!


The past month has been filled with a lot of emotion. I packed up my apartment of two years in Chicago and said goodbye to all my friends. I was not expecting to be so emotional about the whole thing. Closing my apartment door for the last time really felt like the end of a major chapter of my life. While I was moving out, I came across some hidden messages I had my family write on the back of my dresser two years ago. I still haven’t wrapped my mind around the fact that I’m enter this new phase of my life without my mom…

The past month has been jam-packed with family time and it has been ahhmazing!! I am cherishing these moments more so than ever knowing that I’m leaving very soon.


This month has been full of bike rides and beach days at Lake Calhoun. I absolutely love summer in Minnesota! I picked up some donuts from Bogart’s before meeting up with family for a Father’s Day bike ride. My favorite was filled with Nutella!

50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Congrats again to my grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary! We celebrated the glowing couple with a party at the Danish American Center. They were great team players and let us play a spin off of Never have I ever. It was pretty funny to see their reactions to the questions.

Charli’s Grad Party

We spent the first week of June prepping to celebrate our high school graduate! The decision to have Chuckie’s grad party during the brunch hour was a huge hit. Thank you to everyone that made this celebration happen! We could not have done it without you.

And last but not least. The Bernese Mountain Dog puppies that took over my Snapchat. For those of you who don’t know, my aunt breeds Bernese Mountain Dogs and had ten little pups running around her house (15 puppies total if you include the Flat-Coated Retriever puppies)! Playing with all those puppies was a dream. If only they stayed that small forever!
