I always think of Memorial Day as our "unofficial" start of summer. So with the holiday approaching this weekend, I thought it'd be fun to share a few of my favorite past summer outfits and memories. My favorite thing about summer is all of the adventures we take. Blueberry picking, lighthouse exploring, quirky festivals, drive-in movie theaters, ice-cream visits, small town exploring and so much more. I love living in Michigan in the summer. It's the best time to live here (well summer, and autumn, of course) so we usually don't travel much out of state during this time of year. And I can't wait to be here and enjoy every second. And I love that this is just the beginning!

As always, I have several plans for this summer and a huge bucket list to try and accomplish, just for fun. Since Eric and I are getting married next October, we are trying to save as much money as possible, so we're taking smaller more-local trips and adventures, but I'm excited for that! Here are some plans we have for this summer though... a trip to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, and a dune buggy ride, Manistee National Forest, Bear Cave and the St. Joseph Lighthouse. Lavender fields, fireworks, and 4th of July on the beach. A trip to the zoo, and an old retro diner. Dog beach for Winny. A trip to Charity Island for a dinner boat cruise, a new lighthouse to explore, and a kayak adventure out to Turnip Rock. Plus more, hopefully! I'm going to scour all of my books and find everything that's close to us to do. Plus, around the 4th, I'm going on a week-long staycation which I haven't done since before college, that's for sure. And I'll line up some guest bloggers! It's going to be a fun summer. So stay tuned!
