  21. Green Bay Packers games at Lambeau Field
  22. crossing things off lists
  23. photos of special moments
  24. getting together with old friends and reminiscing

  30. weekends spent unplugged!

Tomorrow I’m headed to Florida for my Bachelorette party! I’ll be spending 4 days with some of my favorite people at Florida’s popular gateway destination, 30A. I’m so excited to be away from the computer, the phone, and work for a few precious days. See you next week, loves!

Tell me one thing that makes you happy!
