It’s been a wild ride these past several months and I can’t believe I’m already in my 32nd week of pregnancy. That means our little peanut will be here under 2 months. Holy moly. Time has been absolutely flying by ever since I hit the 3rd trimester.

Two weeks ago I had my very first baby shower hosted by my friends here in Nashville and this PinkBlush maternity dress was the perfect thing for me to wear for the occasion.

The outpouring of love and support I felt from my close-knit community here in Tennessee had me feeling so grateful. I’m going to remember that day forever. My amazing friend Trisha did such a wonderful job of creating the most special day for me… right down to the games, flowers, snacks, and mint lemonade (lemonade has been a major pregnancy craving for me). My mom and sister even made a special weekend trip down so that they could be there for it. My heart was just beaming.

I’m officially back in west Michigan and I’m so excited to be here for an entire week. I’m working from my parents house and hanging with my dog, Syrus for a couple days. On Wednesday morning, we’re heading up to White River Campground with my family for a few nights of camping. Then, we’re heading up to Traverse City for the weekend to watch to friends tie the knot. I’m PUMPED to be here and get some relaxation time.utilityutilityAfter I shut my laptop tomorrow night, I’m planning to stick my nose in a book, eat an unhealthy amount of s’mores, swim with my niece, drink Yuengling around a fire, and embark on some nature walks with my dog and my husband. I haven’t been camping in YEARS so I’m planning to take full advantage of these next few days.

It feels so good to be back sharing my personal style and musings around town again. Now that it’s summer and Nashville gets up in the 100-degree-days, my husband and I searched for some new ice cream places around town that would help us cool off and satisfy our sweet tooth. I typed ‘ice cream’ into my GPS and began my search for a new place to try.

Which was ideal for me, since I’m basically now avoiding dairy at all costs (except for the rare indulgence in Jeni’s peanut butter ice cream). It’s so great that we’ve been here for 3 years and are still discovering so many places around town. I love exploring this city.

When a friend recently told me that she was opening up a boutique shop in her small town of Lewisburg, Tennessee, about 50 miles south of Nashville, I knew I’d have to finally pay the town a visit. Her grand opening of the shop was the perfect opportunity to take a little Saturday road trip a few weeks ago. Her shop is named Studio 20 South and it’s located at 104 2nd Ave North in downtown Lewisburg.

It has been sweater weather for a while in Nashville and I can honestly say I’ve never loved living in sweaters more than I do this year. Maybe that’s because in the south the bitter cold still isn’t nearly as bad as it was in Michigan, but it’s also just comfortable to step outside wearing a sweater. It feels like more like ‘cozy’ weather than it is ‘freezing.’ I’m still looking forward to Spring already though.
