Gray Days & Taco Times

Lake Michigan, Milwaukee, WI

This weekend I spontaneously decided that I wanted to spend some more time with my camera (which hasn’t been getting very much love lately). Despite the gloomy weather Saturday morning, I made the effort to get out there anyway and snap a few shots.


As an extrovert, I generally prefer spending time with others, yet I’ve always simultaneously relished the excitement of getting out and doing things on my own. There’s something so liberating about shutting your phone off and living in the moment, in your moment, to do whatever you please. These moments always leave me bright-eyed and creatively charged, so I was happy to spend some time in thick fog capturing these moments for the hell of it.


For the full effect, put on The Crane Wife by The Decemberists, which made for the perfect soundtrack as I walked for miles along the lake. I spent the rest of the day sipping coffee and doing a bit of reading and oogling over Marc Wagner’s latest zine, Mostly Cats & Monsters. I love his crazy, street-art-esque style and really enjoyed this little gem! Definitely check him out!

Bel Air, Milwaukee

Sunday was much sunnier, so Aaron and I decided to get out and get some delicious taco’s from the oh-so-amazing Bel Air. Mmmm.

Fuel Cafe, Milwaukee

After lunch, we decided to grab some coffee and hang out a bit before heading home. All in all, it was a fun and relaxing weekend which was just what I needed. Now it’s time to tackle another week! Let’s do this!




Until next time, Colorado

Until Next Time

I cannot believe how quickly my time in Colorado flew by or how madly I fell in love with that beautiful state! I’ve been to quite a few mountainous destinations in travels’ past, yet no matter how many times I encounter mountains, I am always awestruck by their powerful presence. Having grown up in the flatland Chicago suburbs, I have always marveled over the allure of the mountains. Hell, I still occasionally find myself giddy over the rolling hills of Wisconsin for goodness sake. So as you might have guessed, I had an incredible time exploring these new places, and I cannot wait to return.

Ace Eat Serve. Denver, Colorado.

On top of the amazing natural scenery, Denver was full of so much well-done design at every turn that I couldn’t help but smile (and snag a few pieces for myself to bring home!). Whether I was walking down the street looking at the logos of local stores or reading restaurant menus, I was always greeted with clean, thoughtful design. Talk about a refreshing vacation!

What’s not to love? I did my best to take quite a few photos on the this journey, so be on the look out for a follow up post within the next week with even more from this excursion!
