They insisted on dressing up and used their best manners at dinner. For a night cap, we went on a drive in search of a @uprr train to watch roll down the tracks. 10/10 would go on a second date 😉A festive Fourth indeed. 🇺🇸🎆Another successful Camp Branstad in the books. The Camp Director only threatened cancelling it forever 5 times this year. Success!How it started ➡️ how it’s goingBatter up!

Memorial weekend 2021 was one for the books! It started off with Marcus and I celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a little staycation. We booked a room at the Surety Hotel (loved!) and proceeded to eat and drink our way through the city. We hit up some of our favorite haunts including: champagne at The Republic on Grand, dinner at Lucca, a stroll around the Downtown Farmers Market, couples massage at East Village Spa, shopping at Von Maur, lunch at St. Kilda Collective, Volleraux happy hour at Cheese Bar, perusing the tees at Raygun, dinner at 801 Chophouse and brunch at Centro. Whew! It was a lot, but definitely a perfect way to spend our anniversary.
After indulging, we headed up to Lake Panorama to do a little fishing and catch whatever rays were thrown our way.
I’m always on the hunt for a great gift for the moms in my life. I own a few of the items below, and put my stamp of approval on them. 2020 was a hot mess, and it’s my guess that the moms/ladies you love in your life kept things from falling completely apart. Let’s give them a little love!
