Whew, it is good to be back to the blog! Those of you who follow me on social media know that I’ve been MIA for the past month due to my travels and preparations for said travels. Upon returning home from my work trip to Chicago, I came back to the office briefly only to head out on my two week trip to Italy to visit my boyfriend shortly after. Although I just returned home on Saturday, I’m itching to go right back!
We traveled to several cities including Venice, Verona, Turin, Rome, and Florence. The country is absolutely spectacular! I could make this post super long about how beautiful each city was and how much I love the history that was teeming within each one, but, instead, I will show you.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from our first big trip together:
I’m finding that I’m having a difficult time readjusting to long distance, but I wouldn’t trade the past two weeks for the world. Traveling with your significant other, especially when you haven’t seen each other in months is absolutely incredible. I’m so grateful to have spent this time with Ry exploring this beautiful country, and I can’t wait for more adventures!!
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll know that Friday night Ryan and I celebrated our two year anniversary before he travels off to Europe for the next couple years at Detroit’s premiere restaurant, Coach Insignia located in the heart of downtown Detroit on the 72nd floor of the Renaissance Center.
Dressed in black and ready to hit the town, Ry and I were greeted with breath-taking views of Detroit and Windsor, Canada, phenomenal food, and an absolutely scrumptious dessert! If you’re in the area I highly recommend checking it out for yourself!
What’s your favorite date night destination? Comment below and Ryan and I will check it out when we’re in your city!
**2017 UPDATE: Coach Insignia is no longer in business. Another restaurant is to be taking it’s place some time in 2018.
Graduation// This past week I applied for college graduation this spring. It didn’t hit me until I was laying in bed that night and was pondering what I’m doing with my life after school. I actually cannot believe how fast these last four years have flown by, and, to be completely honest, I don’t know that I’m entirely ready to grow up.
Tropical Smoothie Café// Yesterday I finally stopped in to see what all of the hype was about, and I must say, I didn’t hate it. I highly recommend going to check out the sweet nectar of the gods for yourself because it’s pretty fantastic if you ask me. For my first go, I tried Sunrise Sunset (strawberries, pineapple, mango, and orange juice), but I definitely want to try pretty much everything on the menu. I’m sure this will end up becoming a new addiction!
Dragonfly In Amber// I’m almost finished with the second book of the Outlander book series, and I’m dying for the next season to premier on television. I seriously think I’m having withdrawals.
Script Handwriting// For some odd reason, I’ve grown slightly obsessive over my handwriting and often find myself attempting to imitate the various script fonts I find on Tumblr and Pinterest.
Boyfriend// Anyone who knows me knows that I am a military girlfriend, and I’m so elated that my boyfriend will finally be home in a few days after being away for six long months!! I apologize in advance if I go on a slight hiatus while he’s home!!
DNCE// Joe Jonas is back, ladies and gents, with a new band and new sound. I barely recognized his voice when I heard their first hit Cake By the Ocean. I cannot stop listening to this extremely danceable song!
That’s all for this week. Have a super fab weekend!
