Strawberry Festival + A Special Announcement

Hi there!

How was your weekend? Did you get outside and enjoy some sunshine? Summer has arrived in Wisconsin and it is Hot! But I will take it because I remember those horrible sub zero temperatures in January. Let’s not go through that again. ;)

Mike and I have continued checking out the festivals this summer throughout Milwaukee and this weekend was Cedarburg’s Strawberry Festival. Cedarburg is north of Milwaukee so it was about a 30-40 minute drive but I didn’t care, I wanted strawberries! I absolutely love strawberries and was super excited about this festival.

The festival is free to attend and they have tents set up with local vendors selling wood crafts, yard stuff, food, and more. There were live bands throughout the streets too. We arrived bright and early because the photos we saw on the website showed the place packed! After a couple of hours this was absolutely the case.

We enjoyed baklava, strawberry popcorn (kind of weird and not a natural flavoring), dark chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry shortcake, and strawberry ice cream. Everything was delicious!

This is definitely one of our favorite festivals because we enjoyed the small town feel- free admission, free parking, and a good time!

And now I have a special announcement to make….Mike and I are engaged! He proposed this weekend and I’m so happy and excited! My brain is totally in overdrive right now thinking about all of the details and planning but hopefully it calms down soon. :)
We're Engaged!

We celebrated our engagement with a glass of our favorite wine, CC. It’s a 2009 cabernet sauvignon that we had at Burgundy Room in Columbus on one of first dates.¬†Sadly, the Burgundy Room is no longer open and CC is a somewhat difficult wine to find. I purchased two bottles for one of our anniversaries and we drank the one right away and saved the second for the right moment. The label is awesome, it says “I will not drink bad wine.” It was as good as we remembered!
