Our Fourth of July Weekend

Last weekend, Luis and I took some time off and headed up north to one of our favorite vacation spots, Door County, Wisconsin. Neither of us could have expected the weather to be as perfect as it was!

We kicked things off with a 4 hour boat ride (what's better than sitting on the water!?). We met my parents in Door County and went out with them on their boat.

We spent most of our time visiting our favorite shops and sights. Also, I discovered Italian sodas... how have I never had one of these before? I immediately went out and bought some club soda and syrup when we returned home; they're the perfect summer beverage.

Friday night, we saw the fireworks together in Gills Rock (aka the best fireworks location in the world). Everyone gathers on the hill that leads down to the bay. A barge is used to shoot off the fireworks once it gets dark, and a band is usually there to play music while you wait for the sun to set. The fireworks were amazing this year! 

Door County, Wisconsin, is truly one of the most beautiful spots to vacation. If you live in the UP or in Wisconsin or Illinois, try to get up there! It's worth it. 

All in all, it was the perfect reset button. How was your 4th of July? Have a beautiful week!

    I still haven't been up to Door County! I have had the cherries though. Looks beautiful. I'll have to venture up there before it gets cold next month. Haha.

    Also, that head scarf looks really cute on you!
