Scenes From Summer

This was my first summer in Madison and I enjoyed it at much as I could!  Corey and I went on weekly dates to places in the city we hadn't seen/been to before.  I have a few more things to do on my list before it gets too cold and my holiday rush begins!


Beetle Time
I spent a good chunk of summer riding in this piece of machinery…going to car shows and simply going for a drive.  Surprisingly I didn't take any photos of my old moped this year. I rode it regularly, but mostly for quick runs to the post office or the library.

Nature
One thing I definitely made time for over the summer was, as my dad likes to say, "therapy" aka enjoying the great outdoors! Thankfully, I live only a few blocks from a couple of gorgeous lakes, a short walk away from the botanical garden, and too many parks to count within 30 miles (including Devil's Lake State Park).

Downtown
I go downtown quite often for the farmers market, coffee and shopping.  Unfortunately, I seem to always forget my camera!  Here are a few pics I managed to find.
