Wizarding World of Harry Potter

HELLO.  There’s a lot going on in my life right now and you will all find out soon!  If you follow me on instagram you probably know already.

Let’s start with our recent vacation to Orlando to celebrate my birthday in warmer weather!

Best of 2017

It’s true; we all think 2017 was pretty terrible.  When I look back, though, so many amazing things happened in 2017.  We spent the full year engaged (today, we are 100 days away from our wedding!) and laid some pretty exciting seeds for big things in 2018.  I couldn’t be looking forward it more!  Here are my favorite moments of 2017, though.

5. My Bridal Shower (November) | It was amazing an overwhelming to have so many people from all different parts of my life together!  See the photo post here and the vlog here.

4. Montreal Trip (September) | We road tripped over the border to Canada, and had a carefree weekend.  Watch the vlogs here & here.

3. Diva & Deepan’s Wedding (May) | Matt & I agree, this was hands down the best wedding we’ll ever go to.  Watch the vlogs here & here.

2. Kelly & Frank’s Wedding & Chicago trip (October) | This only ranks higher because we made a little vacation out of it!  Chicago is a special place to us since it’s the first place we ever traveled together.  Watch the vlogs here & here.

1. Japan Trip! (March/April) | It feels so long ago already, but going to Japan was literally making a lifelong dream come true.  I can’t say enough about this trip and how amazing it was – here‘s the photo post with links to all the vlogs so you can see yourself.

We’re off today to our last wedding of the year — we’ll see you in 2018!

Back in Chicago!

About week ago, we went back to Chicago to celebrate the marriage of my lifelong friend and the love of her life!  We had so much fun and confirmed that we do just love Chicago.  Before the wedding festivities, we had a day or two to ourselves sightseeing, eating (including a return trip to Girl & the Goat!), and seeing Hamilton!

Also, I have a lot to say about why editing this vlog was so difficult, but you’ll see that in my next weekend vlog.  For now, enjoy!

Japan Haul!

I couldn’t wait another minute to share this video because it’s so late exciting!

I think you all can probably tell that life has gotten pretty busy lately, but I’m so happy that I’ve finally gotten around to editing my massive Japan haul.  I hope you enjoy!
