Summertime in Chicago brings a certain energy to the city. There are outdoor festivals, concerts, bike trails, rooftop bars, and so many more activities to take advantage of. Everyone’s moods are just a little (or maybe a lot!) better when the sun is shining. The drastic difference between the weather in the winter vs. the […]Read More Chicago Summer Bachelorette Party: Kellee
After almost two years in the Chicago area, we are packing our bags and moving… to California! As I sit here typing this, it still doesn’t seem real, but in less than 6 weeks, Mo and I will be packing our bags and road tripping to our new home. WHO? Mo, me and Sydney WHAT??! […]Read More We’re Moving!
Where does time even go these days, really?? We’re over halfway through January, which means summer has to be just around the corner… right? That’s what I keep telling myself at least! It seems impossible that Mo and I have been married for THREE years now, but somehow it’s true. We celebrated our first anniversary […]Read More Cheers to Three Years!
One of my favorite things about Chicago is that there is always some kind of race going on. Anything from little neighborhood 5Ks to the Chicago Marathon, there are plenty to choose from. Signing up for a race is a great way to keep yourself motivated… but unfortunately not so great for the bank account! […]Read More Monster Dash 10K
When Mo and I started dating in high school, I quickly realized that he was a die-hard Steelers fan. And when a cute boy that you have a crush on likes something… well, you obviously like it too. Mo saw the opportunity to make me a Steelers fan and swooped in, inviting me over to […]Read More Steeler Nation
It’s a completely normal thing to throw a beach birthday party for your puppy, right? (please say yes…) That said, I will gladly come up with any and every reason to get friends together, eat homemade treats and hang out at the beach on a beautiful day! Sydney turned one on May 22 and we […]Read More Sydney Turns 1!
There is no such thing as a birthday to me… I like to call it a birthweek. Maybe even a birthmonth. Anybody else with me on that?? A couple of people asked me “how it feels.” Well, this Buzzfeed article describes it better than I can: 25 Signs You’re Almost 25. What makes the perfect […]Read More 25 Years OLD
Well it’s about time for an update, don’t you think?? A dying, old computer and more transitions is not the best combination for blogging, but let’s be honest… Life is ALWAYS going to be transitioning. If I wait for a time when things aren’t changing, I will literally never blog again! Here’s a quick update with […]Read More Life Update
Last weekend, Mo and I had the opportunity to stay at Copperstone Inn, the B&B on the same property where we got married. A “relaxing weekend” has been nonexistent since moving back to Chicago, so we were extra grateful for a quiet retreat (shoutout to our folks who puppysat Sydney!). We had a great time reliving our wedding […]Read More Anniversary Weekend Retreat

No exceptions, even when we go out to deliver gifts to our neighbors. It represents such a comfortable and relaxed day, which is what […]Read More Friday Favorites
