Happy Friday, friends! Sorry I’ve been so MIA recently. Life seems to be busier than ever, but in a really great way. As always, I appreciate you stopping by! This week I’m sharing a few favorites from the past couple of weeks as well as updates on where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to.
This week’s favorites are filled with road trips, photos, an adorable ventriloquist, a new artist, tennis, and my latest wish list additions!
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
It’s been so nice out lately – I’ve been loving the warmth and nature (well, minus most bugs, but butterflies are an exception).
Road Trips with Friends
A few weeks back my husband and I hopped in the car and started driving south. With a stop in Springfield, we made our way down to St. Louis to meet up with a couple close friends. The trip was a blast – and my favorite part was by far the City Museum. This is less museum and more playground than anything for kids and adults alike. The entire museum is put together by a sculpture artist with found objects from the surrounding area. I can’t really put into words how cool this place was, but the images on the website do a decent job to give you a bit of an idea.
Who Knew Ventriloquism Could Be So Cute?
I will admit that ventriloquism isn’t exactly at the top of my list of acts I jump to see… but this girl is worth checking out.
A New Artist to Love
I came across this new-to-me artist shared on Facebook and immediately went to follow him on Instagram. Not all of his work is based on his relationship with his wife, but I love the ones who do the most. They hit so close to home.
One of the main reasons I’ve been so busy recently is that I have taken up teaching again! I’ve taught both tennis and art in the past and really started to miss it. So when the opportunity came up to teach again I jumped on it. So far I’ve met a ton of new people, spent a good deal of time in the sun, and gotten some extra exercise. So while I may take me away from the blog for a couple months (and I’ll try my best to be better about checking in) I’m really looking forward to the next few months in the sun!
Each week I find myself adding products to my Amazon wish list – it’s getting slightly out of hand. But it’s still fun so I decided to make it a part of my weekly post so you can also see what I have my eye on. If you have something fun you’ve found I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
