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 …

As our business has grown, it’s something we’ve done less and less of, and it takes me back to when we first started and shot almost everything ourselves. Crazy how much our job(s) have changed the past few years. Earlier this week, she reorganized/styled her office for an article on …

I found a place in a random neighborhood in Chicago that was just too good to pass up. I’ll miss my morning walks by the lake but think this is a good move. At least I hope so. Bigger apartment. Outdoor space. An office. Lower rent. Shorter cab rides downtown.
