September 26, 2015. Two Years. Absolute love.
One week ago we celebrated our 2nd anniversary at the happiest place on Earth...again! It's been another year for the books that's for sure. Our second year of marriage has been filled with so much happiness and honestly has felt easier than the first year. I think we can attribute that to finally slowing down and not buying a house this past year though. We have done some fun projects in our home though, done lots of fun things in Chicago/Milwaukee, gone on a few amazing trips, and are planning the arrival of our first child! Here are some of our favorite highlights from the last year...

Happy Fall everyone! Well that is if you start fall on Sept 1st like we do. We had an incredible summer though and hope you all did, too. Here's a look back at some of the exciting adventures we had this summer...
Planning a trip can be very overwhelming. There's always so many questions and so many options that it can be hard to narrow down the best things to do. Nowadays we're thankfully blessed with the internet to give us tons of resources to help us but at the same time that can be a curse. There's too much out there now, but we're here to help you with that. I like to consider myself a semi-professional trip planner, but it's all thanks to these books and websites that I use to finalize everything.

Our 2017 travel season has finally begun! Our first trip of the year was a road trip out to Michigan for a family reunion. We left at lunch on a Friday and returned Sunday evening, so it was a short but very sweet trip. Instead of going straight to Detroit, we decided to stop off in Toledo, OH first to have dinner with some of our family. We ate at our favorite place in all of Toledo, Shorty's True American Roadhouse. Caleb and I shared a 3 meet combo tray of some pulled pork, brisket, and chicken with some mac and cheese, green beans, and lots and lots of corn bread. Shorty's has the best corn bread in the world. My cousin told me they shared their secret with her on how they make it so good...they use cake batter! I'm definitely going to be giving it a try at home sometime to see how close I can replicate it. After we stuffed ourselves full we headed up to Detroit to check in to our hotel, the Hotel St. Regis. We stayed there during our last visit to Detroit, and loved it. It's in a great area and is a very historic hotel. Martin Luther King Jr use to stay there when he would visit Detroit! We always get the best deal on room rates there by booking with Expedia.
