Happy Birthday, Mom!

Happy happy birthday to my amazing mama! Mom – I wish it was your birthday every day so we could celebrate how awesome you are year-round. You are simply wonderful. So kind, caring, compassionate, empathetic, and loving. You are the best listener, motivator, and pep-talker. You make each of my days brighter and I know there are many others who feel the same. I am the luckiest daughter in the world to call you my mom. What’s even better is that we’re best friends, too. Thank you for being YOU. The world is a better place with your joy and […]

The Schaefer’s in MN!

Three (!!) weekends ago, my parents came to visit our new home! Last time they were here, we spent our time unpacking, organizing, cleaning, and hanging about a million things. This time, we were on a mission to explore the city and relax… and not unpack a single box! We kicked off their visit with drinks downtown Minneapolis with some friends who just so happened to be in the city for college visits. It’s always wonderful when visits overlap! Up next? More drinks. This time at Tattersall – it’s a really cool distillery that’s in a warehouse. The first time Grant […]

Happy Father’s Day!

To my amazing dad, Happy Father’s Day! I’m a better person because of your impact on my life – your kindness, determination, work ethic, love for food and chilled rosé, and personality have been graciously passed to me. And I am so thankful for that. It’s the biggest compliment in the world for people to tell me I’m just like you – which happens very often! When I think of what a “dad” embodies, you check all the boxes and three million more. I could go on and on, but here’s a short list of reasons why you are simply amazing: […]

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy, happy birthday to my one-in-a-million DAD! People (mom) say we are alike – I take that as the best compliment in the world. We are fun-loving, determined, see life in black + white, work hard to accomplish success, and love a good bottle of wine… among many other things that I am lucky to share with you! Thanks for being my buddy, my hero, my adventure partner, my resource for business/money/life/love/everything advice, my personal chef, and most of all someone who I look up to! You make my life and everyone’s you are part of better just by being you. I […]
