remember this list? slowly but surely i’m making my way through my bucket list before i turn thirty.  this weekend, j and i took an impromptu trip up to wisconsin to go camping for the very first time!

my cute hubby making a fire:

grilled chicken & veggies over an open fire:

we sat around the fire until it got very very dark, talking about life and the future.  we didn’t realize it until we got there, but we needed a little getaway for just the two of us.  big foot beach state park was great - clean, well-kept, not too crowded, and right on lake geneva.  sleeping in a tent was interesting… not sure it’s something i want to do on a regular basis, but i’m certainly up for camping again!

the next morning, we got up, packed up our gear and headed into town to stroll around a bit.

my dad took us to lake geneva a few times when we were kids, and i have such great memories from those trips.

i’m pretty sure abby had the best weekend of her life.

one of my favorite parts of lake geneva is the lakefront path.  it curves around in the backyards of the MASSIVE houses along the lakefront for a few miles, and offers a great view of both the lake and the real estate.

this one was our fave - stunning!

it was a great little getaway, and only an hour and a half away from the city.
