Life Lately: June 2016 Edition

Life Lately - June Updates

Welcome to June! I hope you all had a great, long Memorial Day weekend. I did some knitting, bought some fresh flowers, and caught up on some reading, as you can see above. In effort to honor and remember, while having some quiet time with nature, I went hiking at Devil's Lake with my friend. Although I suppose I should say that it was only semi-quiet time. The lake was packed with people because the weather was surprisingly wonderful all weekend. For anyone who has never been, it's an incredible hike - quite tough too. I think it's one of the more challenging hikes that we have in Wisconsin.

While I didn't take Reggie hiking with me, we did get in some miles on the trail. While he can't go too far, he loves running and it's so nice to have an enthusiastic running partner... even if he does get distracted/will want to stop to smell/pee on something about every 5 seconds.

I did make a quick trip to Atwater Beach in Milwaukee as well, which has one of my favorite views of Lake Michigan.

And lastly, I have to admit that I did take advantage of some of the sales - Nordstrom in particular. I've been told that they have amazing customer service when it comes to shoes so I felt okay splurging a little bit on some Halogen pale pink leather flats. I can wait to wear them when they finally arrive!

Have a great Wednesday!
