Week’s End Wrap-Up
Follow along on Instagram!


1. It’s fall no matter where you look in Minnesota! This weekend was the peak of all the colors which is always bittersweet to me. It seems like just when I get used to one season, it quickly transitions into the next. Minnesota weather is always keeping us on our toes.

2. This city skyline will never grow old to me. Minneapolis looks good from all angles, but I especially love the view on my commute home from work everyday. The past few weeks have involved some really long hours at work, but I am learning to appreciate little things like sunsets over this stunning city landscape.

3. Fall baking for all the days! I go through major phases in the kitchen when I get obsessed with baking anything and everything and then drop it for months at a time. Lately we have been on a banana bread kick and the more chocolate chips the better. Am I right?

4. We visited my sister-in-law Sarah at college this weekend! Unfortunately we also got into a minor car accident, but luckily everyone walked away unharmed. After shaking off the incident we did what we naturally love to do and spent the afternoon outdoors! One of our bucket list items is to explore every Minnesota state park. We can cross another off our list!

  • Can’t wait to see the new changes + it looks like you had an awesome lovely fall weekend! Those are the best 🙂

  • Fall always seems like the best time to bake. Probably because I find it’s too hot to do much baking during the summer.

  • I know what you mean about going through baking phases. I’ll be like “I must bake everything” to not touching a spatula for 3 months. 😉
