Small Town Summer Snapshots

I've been living in small town Wisconsin since February, it's such a change of pace from big city Florida living. It's definitely made me appreciate the little things that make summer so fun; spontaneous road trips, grilling out, floating around the lakes & campfires. 
These are a few of my favorite snapshots of summer:

I've adjusted well to my new life, I'm thankful for Midwestern hospitality and the opportunity to experience my local surroundings at their best. My FL friends & fam know I miss them tons, but I can't wait to show visitors around my new home!

Great pictures! I'm from Milwaukee and can imagine the switch from Florida is a big change. Where is the picture of that winery from?
