Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend & a great start to their week! With the Eclipse, my dogâ€™s birthday and my birthday, we had an eventful past few days! I thought I would share with you what I did for my birthday this year!
I had been trying to get to the Sunflower fields at the Pope Farm Conservancy- itâ€™s just on the Verona/Middleton border near Madison, Wisconsin. Each day Iâ€™ve tried to go it either didnâ€™t work out due to plans or the weather was bad. Sunday, the last day of the peak of the sunflowers, we finally made it! It was just as beautiful as I had imagined & pictures donâ€™t even do it justice! It was a hot one on Sunday, so even in my dress and Conor in his shorts and t-shirt, we were pretty sweaty by the end of the trip! Iâ€™ve included some photos below from our visit. I canâ€™t wait to go again next year!
On Monday, my actual birthday, the solar eclipse happened. I went out to lunch with two of my coworkers and we got to see the eclipse. It was pretty amazing! The sky was cloudy all morning, but just before the peak the sky cleared up and we could see the moon covering the sun! It was crazy how the sky looked and how the temperature dropped quickly! I’ll never forget such a cool experience!
In the evening we went out to dinner with a few friends at one of my favorite restaurants in Madison, Pasqualâ€™s Cantina. We had some margaritas and Mexican food! It was a great night with good friends! I found this amazing mural in Madison and just had to snap some photos of it! If you look closely, there are images in the letters! Such an amazing work of art!
Thanks for reading & thanks for all of the birthday wishes!
