The past few days were a big family fest, which I love. My little brother Brady (who we all call Nelson) graduated from high school on Saturday – and man do I feel slightly weird about that. Afterward, we headed over to my aunt and uncle’s place where they have the best summer porch to eat good food and hang out. My friends always tell me they know where to find me … home sweet home. And my family is a big part of that!

On Sunday I spent the day with Michael wandering around Excelsior, a small town on the outskirts of the Twin Cities. We ate Sebastian Joe’s ice cream off of a trolley and relaxed by the lake! So perfect.

    My sister graduated high school this weekend too– so weird to see her getting ready for college, and becoming an adult! Glad I have two more younger than her yet. Congrats to your bro :-)

    YUM, Sebastian Joe’s! I need to go back there soon. I live in the Twin Cities too. :)

      You do!? What part of the cities? I’m in Eagan, but will be moving to the Uptown area in September. :)

      I live in NE Minneapolis! Uptown will be so awesome – you’ll be super close to the other Sebastian Joe’s! And tons of other good stuff too.

      Cool cool – my boyfriend lives in NE Minneapolis, so I’m up there a lot – especially at Bulldog. I am OBSESSED with their nachos. And I’m super glad about the Sebastian Joes in Uptown – their ice cream is the best. ;)
