This week has completely passed us by, and it’s been unconventional in the best possible way. We returned home from Malibu on Saturday, hugged my parents goodbye on Sunday (they kept our home cozy and little Lucy, Jack, CC and Libby happy while we were away), and we celebrated with Domino on Tuesday! In-between, we’ve […]
After 2 hours of paper after paper, signature after signature – and several questions sprinkled in for good measure – we’re now the owners of a two-flat conversion in our favorite Chicago ‘hood. (What!) As you can imagine, it was slightly comical when the previous owner passed the torch – 2 pounds of keys, ha! […]
After dining, visiting and sightseeing (what felt like) all of Chicago in our first weekend-half, we slowed down for half two. We cooked at home. We played games with friends. We ate cake! Scott gave us a tour of his semi-secret bike park, and we walked through our neighborhood, pointing out where we like to […]
Despite the fluke-of-a-weekend warm up, it’s still really flipping cold here in Chicago (too cold for our liking at this time of year) – but that hasn’t kept us from daydreaming of more sunny days, long walks with Jack (sans bubble coats) and after-work drinks on the patio – our patio, your patio, the bar’s […]
The weather in Chicago warmed up so fast and suddenly this weekend, that no one knew what to wear. Seriously, it’s this time of year that gets weird, and nothing in your wardrobe seems to make sense anymore. While running errands the last couple of days (basically every task we’ve put off in the last […]
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, […]
Photo credits shared between Scott + me.
We’ve bumped up our annual wedding anniversary take-a-trip tradition to August, and this time, we’re visiting Vancouver, Seattle and Portland! We’re sharing our photo journal (of sorts) along the way and welcome any recommendations on where to go. More on that right here. Photo credits are shared between Scott + me.
It’s nuts to think of how much we packed into a 3 day, semi-impromptu trip to Paris. With our number one goal being to hold a vow ceremony for our friends Jess and Scott (check!), we still managed to wear in our walking shoes, fill our bellies with an absurd amount of red wine and […]
