After spending a weekend in Florence, it was now time to head to Positano for wedding week... the week we all had been anticipating for so long! The trip from Florence to Positano was a good 5 and a half hours, and we decided to add Naples to the itinerary-staying just one evening and departing for Positano the next day.Read More
For the 4th of July, we made a trip down to Lake of the Ozarks with family- where B's parents have a lakehouse, and we have been coming for as many summer weekends as possible for since we moved back to Kansas CIty. It seems like as life goes on, and we get busier, we make it down less and less.Read More

I'm happy I still have our vacation photos to go through these days as our Kansas City temperatures are topping out in the high 90's with lots of humidity making it tough to want to be outside!Read More
Florence is probably my favorite cities in Italy. I first came here for a weekend trip with friends when I was studying for the summer staying in the Veneto region, north of Venice. I fell in love with it instantly and have been back three separate occasion since! This trip was a little pre-wedding meet up for us and our friends before heading down to Positano. I had been saving this red polka dot dress specifically for Florence- knowing its a lot hotter here than it was in the French Riviera, or it would be down in Positano. Something that is cotton and flows away from the body in 85 + degree heat is a must-wear! (Plus I had a feeling this red would serve as a good pop of color against the gothic style architecture seen everywhere in Florence... yes I'm a nerd and think about that sort of thing!)
Polka dots have always been a favorite pattern of mine, and when I see something polka-dotted, I am always drawn to it! I have linked all my favorite polka-dot picks for the summer above! (I really am eyeing that Tularosa blue and white polka dot dress!.. maybe post baby!?)
Its baby week everyone!! Baby watch has officially begun!!
From day one of finding out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to stay as active as possible and keep up my healthy habits that I had worked so hard over the years to establish in the first place! It definitely wasn't easy, especially throughout the first trimester where I most of the time I felt so exhausted that a nice little spot on the couch always sounded better than ANYTHING else.Read More
