Why I look forward to the Summer Sun.

Do you daydream about drinking mango and strawberry smoothies on the beach, while the sun is out and it is above 80 degrees ( my perfect weather basically being anything above 75-90 degrees 🙂 ).

I know I do!

While growing up in this frozen tundra, or more commonly known as the Midwest, I have gotten to to appreciate the 5 months (if we are lucky) of nice weather (AKA above 75!)  🙂

Not Your Average Love Letter. Letter 1: Never Get Burned By the Same Flame?

Hey guys!

(*Disclaimer*- I’m sharing personal events that have happened to me, please respect my choices and what I have to say. Not everyone will fall into this category of going back to their EX, but I’m writing this to help someone that was as confused as I was when I was deciding what to do when I was in this situation. )

I decided to start this series “Not Your Average Love Letters”, because I feel like Love is such a hard and confusing emotion, but it can also be the most amazing. People think it’s supposed to be this perfect, easy feeling to navigate. I’m here to tell you that it’s not. You will fight, get confused, you will get hurt feelings sometimes, but that only makes up about 10% of the relationship. Honestly, my boyfriend is my best friend, we tell each other everything, and we get into arguments but we never full-on fight. We always make up, because we love each other.

I happened to pass by TJMaxx, I decided to go in and I found this huge Kate Spade bag. I thought it was perfect until I was able to fit my coat into it and still have room…. Yeah…. too big.
