May Monthly Favorites

May is my favorite month, and only partially because it’s my birthday month! I feel like I say this every month, but I can’t believe how quickly May flew by! It feels like yesterday that I was counting down 3 weeks until my birthday, and now I’m just another year older.

App

Overcast. I decided to listen to start listening to podcasts on my commute to and from work, and Overcast is definitely the best way to do that! My favorite podcast to listen to is The Minimalists. They talk about living with less in the best possible way for your situation, and it’s very inspirational!

Book

The Nest. This book was hard to get into at first, but after getting into a rhythm, I really enjoyed it!

@amyshorephotography. Amy is an amazing photographer, and the cars in said pictures just make them that much better!

Minneapolis Attraction

Breweries. There are so many fantastic craft breweries in the Twin Cities that deciding where to go on a Friday night takes longer than drinking an actual beer! Most of them also have great patio spaces, which makes for awesome dog-sight-seeing in the summer!

Monthly Event

My birthday! I mean, did you really think I would say anything else?? I turned a quarter of a century on May 27th and suddenly feel the need to turn the volume way up on the TV and tweet out Google inquiries. Too soon?

It's my party and I'll drink if I want to! 🍾🍾🍾 #birthdaygirl

April Monthly Favorites

They say April showers bring May flowers, and we definitely got plenty of showers this month! (Also, snow, but there’s no quote for April snow.) Trees are starting to turn green, tulips are starting to pop up, and bright colorful clothing is on everyone but me. Bring on spring!Read More »

March Monthly Favorites

March is typically a pretty dull month. It’s not quite spring, but there’s never enough snow to make it look like a winter wonderland, so we’re stuck right in the middle. You don’t want to be outside, but you’re sick of sitting inside waiting for nice weather. Although March definitely isn’t my favorite month, I did have a few favorite moments!Read More »
