Hey, It’s Megan!
I’m an Art Director who loves vacations, peanut butter and champagne. I am not a big fan of: waking up before sunrise, voicemails, and slow walkers. I’m a midwestern girl since birth, now living my best life in Chicago! I’ve made a goal to read as many books as I possibly can in 2018. Follow along!

Chicago has a lot to offer during Halloween. There are bar crawls, ballroom costume parties, and family-friendly events all over the city. You can even do a haunted dinner cruise if you want to. Halloween festivities begin early October, and last through Halloween weekend. I've gathered a few of my favorite Chicago Halloween events below: 1. Arts in the Dark Parade – October 20, 2018 (Photo Credit) This is the fourth year for this artsy parade. This year, there is a new parade route. Starting at State and Lake, the parade will continue south down State Street to Van Buren. The parade runs from 6p-8p, and there will be an after party at Millennium Park! The after party takes place by the Bean from 7:30p-9:30p. There will be DJ's, stilt [...]

New Orleans is one of my most favorite cities I've ever visited. The food, the music, the architecture, the ghosts – New Orleans has a lot to offer 🙂 If you're planning a visit, you have to do a ghost tour! There are so many ghost tours to choose from – but if you've read my post on How to Plan Your First Trip to Europe, you know I love Viator! Here's a list of all of the New Orleans ghost tours on Viator! There are plenty of haunted places in NOLA, I'm sure you'll get your money's worth with any of them.

What is the last thing you've crossed off your bucket list? Mine was actually last weekend, attending a lantern festival. For my birthday, my amazing husband surprised me with tickets for us and my parents to The Lights Fest in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. I know you're probably thinking about how bad these are for the environment (I have always wanted to attend a lantern festival, but morally felt like I couldn't). The Lights Fest actually uses custom-made lanterns that don't contain wires, and have a short flight time compared to standard lanterns. This means they fall a short distance from where you light them, designed for easy retrieval. Once all of the lanterns have fallen, volunteers go around collecting them! And the lanterns are biodegradable, just in case a few are missed. [...]
Happy Fall, ya'll. Tomorrow is the official first day of fall! I've recently read an opinion that I found very interesting: when we're younger, summer is our favorite season because we have the whole time off, but is it really your favorite season? Don't get me wrong, I love the warmth, the beach, my balcony, drinking outside – but there's something about fall that I've always loved. Plus, I could (and do) live in leggings and sweaters, and that's much easier to do in the fall. Here is my Amazon Fall Shopping List this year! I try to keep it all-prime all of the time.
