Back to Reality

So I kinda suck at posting while not on my normal schedule (obvi). I had big plans to keep blogging while on my trip back home in Michigan, but that didn’t happen. I’m definitely going to make that a priority next time I travel…actually plan ahead maybe?!

Anyways, last week Brand and I flew back to Michigan for a visit home and because his cousin’s wedding was this past Saturday. It was actually a great trip, minus the millions of mosquito bites that are now covering my legs. I got to spend an entire day with my best friends, spend lots of time with my family, made some big decisions as far as wedding planning, including having our engagement photos done, and the biggest plus was probably escaping this Arizona summer for a bit (117 on Wednesday, ugh!!). You can see all the photos from my trip on my instagram.

While I can’t say I’m thrilled to be back to reality, I am excited to get back on a schedule with this blog of mine šŸ™‚

    Glad you are back in the blogging game.

    Happy to have you back- and TOTALLY feel for you re: mosquito bites. They attack me every year. A little tip I've picked up: run a spoon under hot water (like really hot, almost boiling) until it's hot to the touch. Then lay the back of the spoon over the bite. It should burn, but not enough to cause a welt/any damage. But the heat works to kill the protein that causes the bite to itch. It works instantly, and I've found I can get bites to heal up/stop itching completely after a few rounds.

    This sounds so weird, haha. But it works! I get eaten ALIVE every summer.

    Have a great weekend ahead, babe!
