Video: Our Chicago Summer 2016

Bridget & CaseyAugust 29, 2016 Comments

Well, it looks like our summer is just about over. Bridget has been back to school for 2 weeks now, and we’re already busy filling our September schedule with lots of projects. Those carefree summer days are officially behind us, and we’ve got fall on our minds. Anyone else?!

At the beginning of the summer, we vowed to take some video every time we were together…even if it was just a few seconds here and there. That way, by August, we could create a mini reel of all of the fun stuff we did over the summertime.haven-conference-bridget-casey-diy-playbook-rookies-atlanta

It’s chock full of a little bit of everything…spending time with our hubbies, blogging on our computers, drinking coffee, sipping champagne, taking photos, boating on Lake Michigan, decorating our homes, etc. It’s really just a concoction of all of the tiny moments that made our summer so much fun!

Our Chicago Summer 2016 – VIDEO

We’re hoping to create these mini videos for every season (our fall one is currently in the works!). I guess you could consider it to be a video scrapbook of our lives, our blog, and our friendship. And since we became fast friends because of our love of scrapbooking (way back in high school…), we’re considering this to be our adult method of documenting all of the fun we have together.

Cheers to a wonderful Chicago summer. We feel so grateful for such an amazing summer together, but we’re officially ready to bring on the fall!

  • What a great idea! I love the video, you two ladies just keep turning out awesomeness! I am a Canadian, living in Vancouver, but lived in Chicago. My son, who turned 12 yesterday was born at Illinios Masonic! We took him to Chicago for his 10th bday, I attached a pic of us at Navy Pier. I love seeing the footage of your gorgeous city, I miss living in Chicago! I LOVE your blog and also follow you on Instagram. Reading your content is the way I often start my morning, of course with a cup of coffee! Gold stars for the both of you! Hugs from Canada!
