As I mentioned in my previous post, Charlotte, Jen, and I hiked around Geneva Lake in Wisconsin. When the idea to do it came up, I was pumped because I knew it would be such a fun adventure. However, later, I did have my doubts when my anxiety crept in a bit asking, "What if… Continue reading Lake Geneva Hike (Part I)
I have so much to tell you about our 26-mile hike around Lake Geneva including some tips for such a long hike and this specific route! It's going to take me a bit longer to write those posts, so I thought I'd skip that day for now. After spending a few days in Chicago (and… Continue reading Local Fun: iFLY & Sugary Treats

We parked… Continue reading Like Sweets? – The Sugar Factory
Sorry, I missed posting last week. I was actually applying for an internship! I'm going to be leaving my job at Starbucks in about three more weeks.
