Well, we’re officially one month into 2017. It’s been a very full year so far but I’m not complaining. I’ve gotten to do some fun and different things for work which is always a nice change from sitting at my desk all day. February 1 was the 7 year anniversary of the first …

It’s been almost a month since I’ve shared one of my not-quite-weekly updates.

The first few days of fall have felt a lot like summer and like everyone else, I’m looking forward to breaking out my sweaters and favorite booties. Leaves are slowly starting to fall on the ground and these warm days are a reminder that summer is fleeting. I’m ready for sweater weather but plan on enjoying …

The last summer weekend was one of my favorite summer weekends. We celebrated my birthday with margaritas, dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, and a rooftop end of summer/birthday party. Can't believe there are just three more days until summer '16 comes to an end.

The weekend has come to an end and it’s time to dive into another week of work. Instead of feeling sad it’s not Sunday, why not try planning something fun before the holiday weekend? It’s still summer after all, so find the nearest patio, a friend, some rosé, and turn things around. But …

Chicago showed some of the first signs that in the next month or so, summer will be coming to an end. It isn't over yet, but morning and evening temps are creeping into the 60s–a sign that fall is coming. I've been watching too much Game of Thrones.
