After the most amazing few weeks in Tuscany, Florence, Rome, and Paris, I am finally back in Chicago. And while I loved my time away, it's so good to come home to the pup, only 12 unread emails, and to start and end the work week on a Friday.

Spending a week in Italy with just one post ready to publish will result in a slight lack of content. I'm at the airport headed to one of my favorite cities and think it's time for an update.

I sort of fell off the grid the past few weeks, but it's summer, I'm finally feeling better, and I am one week away from leaving for Italy! If you follow me on instagram, you know (some of) what I've been up to, but I think it's time for a little catch-up …

Nothing beats warm temps, sunshine, and laying out by the pool on a long, holiday weekend. Unfortunately, my 3 day weekend didn't turn out as planned, but it was still nice to enjoy a little relaxation at home.

The past few months have included trips to Iceland, Los Angeles, Dallas, DC, New York, and Denver. A travel schedule that has meant more trips in 3 months than I'd usually take an entire year. There aren't any more work trips lined up this year, and I have an entire month on …

This past week included a few days in NYC, hosting a dinner, and filming the first half of a video for a brand we're working with, so come Friday night, I found myself committed to staying in all weekend. Temps in the 40s-50s and knowing I'll be on a plane later …

While I've never really wanted a "normal" routine, I'm in need of a few weeks of what I think normal should look like. I get stressed out pretty easily, so the travel, projects, home tour, side projects, new hires, our managing editor all leaving for two weeks, and most recently, last-minute video …

It's Friday and I'm not traveling for two weeks! Excited to have some much-needed time at home to finish my place, eat healthy, and work out regularly now that I'm able to work out again. I never thought I'd be excited about not traveling, probably because I never did much …

It snowed yesterday (ugh), and while I'm so ready for spring and summer, I used that weather as perfect excuse for a cozy day indoors. It meant blogging, giving my site a little facelift, working on two website installs for design clients, and take-out and Downton with Conor last night. My Sunday …
