Scenes From Our Gorgeous Getaway to Galena, IL {Pictures}

My family and I went on a 4 day getaway to beautiful Galena, IL. Who knew Illinois could be so pretty?! We rented the most GORGEOUS lake house (think Chip and Joanna Gaines style). It was STUNNING, massive, and right on the water. PERFECT. We shopped at gorgeous boutiques, ate delicious food, played many rounds of Uno, went on a 3 mile hike (where a snake slithered right up to my foot!), roasted S’mores, and enjoyed this special time with just the 4 of us. Here are some snapshots that I took of our lovely trip πŸ™‚

Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of my personal life with you today. I’ll be back on Wednesday with a post all about the books that I purchased while on my trip (I bought 4)!

Have you been to Galena, IL? Highly recommend. This was our 2nd trip there and I cant wait to return for a 3rd!

Until next time…

  1. Looks like you had a great time. We went there once when my oldest was a toddler. Your trips have inspired me to go somewhere different soon with my family. I’ve been reading a travel magazine and there are so many places we haven’t been and we’ve lived in MD for almost 12 years!


    1. Oh I love that our trips have inspired you! Traveling during Covid is definitely a different experience! However, as long as you put safety measures into place, it’s a wonderful time to make truly beautiful memories with your family.
