Week 20! It is such a good week to remember! The weather was nice and we had a great time with family and friends.
I got the chance to get to the top of Teacher’s College on Ball State’s Campus so of course I took a picture. I’m so glad the clouds were cooperating that day.
Gunnar and I also had anniversary pictures taken, it’s going to be so hard deciding which ones to share with you since I love them all and we had so much fun taking them.
Have a great long weekend everyone!
Even though I didn’t post my practice last week I was still working hard! I started working on capital letters and phrases and words. I’ve been looking up calligraphy on Pinterest and trying to emulate what I see. This is exposing me to lots of ways people use calligraphy in final pieces. I have just been using printer paper to practice on but I really need to get over to the art store and purchase some paper that will keep the ink from bleeding on the page.
Have you started learning a new skill in 2015? I’m really glad I started working on this practicing the letters is relaxing and therapeutic to do in the evenings. I’ll be back next week with my next practice!
With Memorial Day kicking off the start of summer, it is officially time for summer cocktails on the porch while the sun sets, one of my favorite summer activities. Here are my top five summer cocktails you have to try this weekend!
Banana Pudding Milkshakes – This one is currently without alcohol but you could easily add in a little bit of rum to spice these delicious milkshakes up!
Fruity Summer Cocktail – Fizzy and refreshing is the way to go after a warm summer day.
Kiwi Lime Mojito – This is one of my all time favorite Happy Apple Cocktail recipes. I love mojitos and the added kiwi is wonderful.
Whiskey Smash – I’m not sure how to describe the flavors in this cocktail it is just yummy and refreshing. Plus you get to munch on the black raspberries as your sipping on this drink.
Red, White, & Blue Sangria – This is the kind of cocktail you make for a crowd. Everyone loves it and it is easy to make a large batch of.
I love that it is warm enough out that I can wear my dresses full force. They are really, really easy to wear all you do it throw it on and you have a whole outfit. This Dress is one of my favorites to wear since its is all black it is easy to accessorize but also the lace outter dress gives it interest and texture!

This week was really fun, even though we didn’t do anything crazy. It was mostly us being at home doing our thing and going to work. The year is flying by and I’m so glad that I have this book of photographs to remember even the everyday moments in our life!
We went out for sushi night for Gunnar. I tried it again, I’m not sure it is really my thing yet but I did enjoy the sweet potato roll.
I used the a card from my Happy Mail kit (Don’t stop, get it, get it) in my spread this week. It’s a good thing to remember when things are crazy or when they are slow. I also found these awesome bike paper clips! How cute is that?!? I attached it to one of the filler cards from the midnight edition and I love how it will stick up and out of the pocket a little bit!
I hope you all are having a good weekend!
