August Top 10 #theusiscooltoo

Where did summer go?! I took a few trips this summer: Chicago for T Swift with my sister (it was epic) and Colorado for a wedding (also incredible). I haven't been on the blog or social media as much as usual because of our big move! 

We are headed even further north to Marquette, Michigan on Lake Superior. Honestly, I'm still in shock, but I went up with Ryan a few weeks ago to see the town and experience a little taste of summer. Lake Superior is the largest inland body of water in the world so it really feels like we're living on the coast again (which I love). We hit the beach every day and attempted SUP surfing for the first time since living in Maui. Despite being terrified about real winter, I am excited about our new adventure; if you have any favorite Upper Peninsula adventures send me a note or leave a comment. Most importantly if you have any clothing/cold weather gear recommendations drop them in the comments!

Labor Day Weekend Inspiration - August #theusiscooltoo

I can't believe it is already Labor Day weekend. I'm not ready to send summer off just yet and going through the August submissions for #theusiscooltoo has me craving a beach trip asap. I'm in Bloomington this weekend so I plan going hiking and swimming around the lake. There will likely some beer drinking on a patio somewhere as well.
