Summer 2016 Recap

Now that summer is officially over, I wanted to recap all of my favorite moments of the past few months. Summers in Chicago are short so you have to take advantage of the nice weather while you can. Looking back, I don’t think I did too bad of a job this year. Did you get a chance to do everything you wanted to this summer?

1.Attended a rooftop pool party at my apartment


2.Went to Windy City Smoke-Out Country Festival (might be my favorite event in the summer)


3.Celebrated my 25th Birthday (since when am I a quarter century old??).. I also asked for Banana Bread instead of a cake… totally normal right?


4.Threw a Bridal Shower for my best friend Chrissy

8.Threw my best friend Chrissy’s Bachelorette Party in Chicago (see my bachelorette post for tips on planning your own)


9.Threw a surprise 60th Birthday party for my parents
