Tonight: Shooting Star Pallooza

Grab some comfy blankets and all of your favorite people! Tonight marks the annual Perseid meteor shower - the most spectacular light show you have ever seen!

The peak of the shower will happen around midnight tonight {lasting til the wee hours of Friday} with the best viewing in the northeast portion of the sky. Given the right combo of dark skies and perfect moonlight, more than 75 brilliant shooting stars per hour are expected.



I have so many great memories of star gazing with my family when I was little! My parents would tip toe into our bedrooms super early in the morning to wake us up.

I'll always remember laying out on the back porch together watching the night sky as bright stars would whiz by over and over again.

{ LOVE IT! }




This is one of the greatest productions Mother Nature has to offer! If you have yet to witness this fantastic display, this is a MUST SEE.


{ It's gorgeous! }


Super excited to go out to the 'burbs tonight, spread out a big picnic blanket and watch the stars fly by with BF. May need a big Starbucks in the morning, but it's totally worth the lack of zzzz's!




Happy star gazing!

  2. The news anounced it this am. Are you in an area where the sky is away from city lights? My kids and I used watch In August in years gone by. They loved it as did I.
