At the end of this post, we were called out last week by Julia – one of our go-to text-ing ladies for home advice – when she said, evening shots on home blogs – a rarity. It feels so elusive and mysterious. Ah, touché, Julia. This made us realize – well, she’s right! We’ve never […]
In-between downtime with friends and dates with our couch, we spent the weekend tying up loose ends, making future plans and daydreaming (lots of that). I took advantage of weekend sleep ins, and I woke up each morning to Scott and Jack playing video games – something that is becoming sort of a tradition. After […]
When we moved to Chicago 6 years ago, our intent was to live the “Big City” life for a few years to get it out of our collective system, then likely head west and end up in California or Oregon. Kim and I both love the Midwest (they say Midwest is best!) – after all, […]

The freshly wedded duo eloped, and we were so honored to be there and officiate (Scott) and photograph (me) the moment. We […]
After a long week for both of us and working later than I’d like to admit on Friday evening, Scott and I exhaustingly pushed each others’ buttons – poking and huffing over little, nit-picky things. We can see this clearly now, but at the time, we were pissed at each other. In his attempt to […]
