Life As I Know It, Picture Taking Time

Holiday Favorites {Photo Dump}


Over the holidays, we spent six nights in my home state of Wisconsin, and then six nights in my hubby’s home state of Tennessee. We spent most of the time with family, a few friends, and each other. It was relaxing and also long enough that by the time it was over, I was very ready to get back to my regular work routine.

Here are a few gems from our travels!!

Life As I Know It, Picture Taking Time


The weekend after our Memphis trip, The Boyfriend and I adventured home to Wisconsin (well, my home, not his). This was his first trip home with me, so we certainly tried to cram in as much as possible. We saw my family, and I did my best to make sure he saw every part of the area that meant something to me. We also made it up to Green Bay for a Packers game, but I’ll save those pictures for their own post. Meanwhile, here is a glimpse of Milwaukee for you!

First, from my hometown itself:

The famous Covered Bridge.

And then, the Miller Brewery tour downtown Milwaukee:

And some adventures around Lake Michigan…




Daily Notes, Picture Taking Time

A Beautiful Evening {wine and cheese}

As I mentioned Tuesday, my roomates and I had a wonderfully classy wine and cheese party last weekend!ย  Here are my favorite shots.ย  I was so proud of the way everything looked!ย  Roommate Kate ingeniously put flowers not just in wine bottles, but in wine glasses too.ย  The grapes in wine glasses and pears on the table made nice touches, too.ย  It was a great night!
