A Look Back at 2018

A Look Back at 2018

Oh what a year 2018 was! So much happened this year I don’t even know where to begin. 2018 started with a weekend trip to New York.

New York was followed by a weekend trip to Cancun, Mexico. It was a week filled with fun, sun and relaxation!

A month after we came home from Cancun, I was off to Denver for my brother in law’s birthday weekend. It was an amazing weekend in Breckenridge spent skiing, snowmobiling and hanging out in a cabin!

My favorite place this year was the 3 Arts Cafe inside of Restoration Hardware. So pretty, and the food was great!

When April came around, it was time for another trip. We were ready to leave the Chicago cold so we went to Orlando. We visited 2 of the Disney parks, Universal Studios, plus I rented my first convertible!

The beginning of May was spent moving into a new building…and it was finally summer. The warmer weather also meant rooftop season was in full swing. We loved every moment of sipping drinks in the sky. In mid-May we went to UIUC for my sisters graduation. I also celebrated my friend/forever roomie’s Bachelorette party in Chicago over the summer. We spent 4th of July in Chicago with our friends.

July ended with a work trip to Las Vegas! What a wonderful and HOT week it was. I was at a trade show during the day for work, but we were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy the nights exploring Vegas.

We flew home from Vegas and drove straight to Madison, WI for my friends wedding. What a wonderful weekend filled with love and celebration!

I went to my first concert, and saw Drake! We took Ace to his first fest, Little Italy fest. My sister Neha got her white coat for pharmacy school. I joined Orange Theory Fitness and absolutely love it! I got my first letter board! These are just some of the highlights from the end of summer.

I had my first staycation in Chicago and did SO MUCH in the city over 1 weekend. This was right before my 29th birthday! One of my most favorite weekends of 2018!!!

2018 was filled with so much love and laughter! I traveled, went to weddings, engagement parties, birthday parties and more. We ended 2018 with a trip to Costa Rica which I will post about later. Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

Always, living my best life ❤

The Journey Begins

I have been wanting to start a blog for a while now. I was never sure about the specific content I wanted to blog about. I had tested out some topics that I would be interested in potentially blogging about but I was never able to pick one.  But then every time I cooked a meal or wanted to share a beauty hack, I wished I had a blog. Finally, after long thought and consideration (and words of encouragement and support from friends and family) I decided to take the leap! I love so many different things, so what better way to express myself than a lifestyle blog? I am a 28 year old pharmacist who lives in Chicago. I love to travel and explore new cities, cook and try new recipes, eat at new restaurants, consistently improve my beauty routine and so much more. Please join me while I enjoy the Windy City one day at a time, living my best life.
