Life is pretty grand these days.This summer has been a blast so far and I am so thankful! The boys are at perfect ages for maximun enjoyment of summer activities and we are loving every single second of it. Friday night we had our friends Katie and Mark over with their 3 boys for a cook out and drinks, Saturday morning I hit the farmers market with Remy>>strawberryfest (20)Saturday afternoon we went to Strawberry Fest, Sunday after church I had a wedding shower for my gorgeous friend Jessy, and then we did a little slip and slide and swimming to beat the heat. In between all that we finally finished painting Jack’s new bedroom and I can’t wait to share pictures soon! I give this weekend 5 gold stars, and my life these days, infinity.

There are tons of little booths of craftys to buy, strawberry brats, strawberry beer, strawberry SHORTCAKE, but the best part is all the food trucks. Oh my goodness. We got the best sharp cheddar and pepper jack grilled cheese sandwiches on Texas toast, a fabulous Gyro, and the best plate of Mexican food I have ever tasted, all from food trucks right next to each other  The music is fantastic and there is quite a lot for the kiddos to do. Cedarburg is one of our favorite little spots in Wisconsin and Strawberry Fest is just one of the reasons why. We have even talked about moving there…

Cedarburg & this year’s Christmas card

Here is our Christmas card for this year…this is the only picture out of like 100 that semi-turned out. I was happy with them though!

I spent the day in Cedarburg with my mom a couple weeks ago, aka the best little town in WI! If you haven’t been there, GO. It’s my favorite.  There are so many cute shops, thrift stores, and antique places. Plus there is an adorable winery and a handful of great places to eat. It is especially beautiful around Christmas time. I snapped a few pictures with my phone but they don’t quite capture all the magic of Cedarburg.

I wanted to buy so many Christmas decorations but we just don’t have any room right now! In the future though I will be heading back for said decorations.

 

This chandelier.Let me tell you. I should have just bought it. Darn!  We don’t have a place for it now but in our next house I dream of a farmhouse table with a simple piece like this over the top.
