pretty things

The university that Joel and I work at gives us a day off for our birthdays! I’ve never had an employer that does that, so we decided to take a long weekend with Joel’s birthday off day and went to Milwaukee. It was so much fun and such a pretty, little city that I thought I’d share a few things from our trip today, pretty things-style!

Joel mostly took photos with his Kiev,

but he traded me for the Nikon and took this photo of me. (I secretly really like it!)

Monday morning we had coffee at a lovely little place called Alterra. They have a bunch of locations, but we stopped by the 5th Ward Foundry. I love their cups!

I had a cran-orange pumpkin muffin that was so good I need to try to recreate a batch of them soon!

I love all the blues and greens in the city!

I hope you’re having a pretty Wednesday!
