    Visiting the Sunflower Fields

    Hey friendship! Awhile back, I wrote a blog post that detailed items on my bucket list.  This weekend, I took a trip to Kansas City and got to cross one off!  I visited a sunflower field in Lawrence Kansas located at Grinter’s Farm. Feast your eyes on this bright yellow, happy mini paradise stretching across the horizon. I researched the most ideal time to go was the second week of September, which lined up perfect with my Taylor Swift concert.  I kept checking at the location on Instagram [insert shameless plz follow me request here] to see if the sunflowers were blooming yet under “Most Recent” posts.  The farm is…

Day One   Breakfast – SqWires I got the french toast, which was fluffy as french toast should be.  Also the bacon was made the perfection – I really hate when…

    Breakfast in Chicago

    Hiking Camelback Moutain

    Hey friendship! Back in January, we took a lovely trip to Phoenix, Arizona and hiked the famous Camelback Mountain.  Here’s some things I wish I knew beforehand. I’m from Nebraska, which is also known as the great plains.  When people ask if I want to go on a hike, it’s usually only a slight incline with some trees around.  That gives you a little background of my skill level, but if I can do it, you certainly can as well.  If you are a beginner like me, I would recommend Cholla Trail. It’s half walking, half climbing – while it’s counterpart Echo Canyon is all climb.  Overall, the climb took…
