First Weekend of Fall

Happy last week of September!

I don’t have many pictures from this weekend because I think I spent more time on IG stories than actually snapping pictures. Whoops.

If you follow along on there, then you already know how my weekend was. If you don’t, here’s a recap.

Saturday morning I went to a workout at Crossfit Chicago with two of my friends. I don’t normally work out on the weekends, but my friend talked me into it. This workout almost killed me. I don’t know if it’s because this was my fifth day working out or what, but I had to seriously slow down on some of these.


My face is normally a nice tomato red after a workout, but this day it was almost purple. Out of control.


There was a small food market across the street that I explored, but I didn’t end up getting anything. I took a long walk through the city to stop at Whole Foods for lunch, then headed home.

I spent the rest of Saturday cleaning and watching movies with Neil.

Sunday I trained a client and then spent the afternoon working on some new photos in the city. As soon as I get them I will be sure to share them with you!

Neil and I went on a shopping expedition for sandwiches and then I stuffed myself with all kinds of meat and cheese.

Tomorrow we leave for a 6 day trip to Yosemite and San Francisco. I can’t remember the last time we took such a long trip! Depending on how much I can get done today, I may have some more posts for you this week, but if not then I will be back next week.

We are using our park time to unplug and really try and get back to basics. This means that I probably won’t be posting to IG or other social media for a couple days (gasp). Let’s hope I survive.

In all seriousness though, I LOVE nature. I am really excited to camp by the water and enjoy all the beauty. Just be. It’ll be amazing. If you’ve ever been to Yosemite, let me know what I should do!!

Hope you all had a great weekend and an even better week this week. See you soon!

Also — big congrats to Ellen for winning the Oh She Glows Every Day cookbook giveaway! If you’re still looking to win some prizes, make sure to head over to this Instagram post! Ends tonight!

    You’re going to love Yosemite, and I totally agree that detoxing from social media is essential. I just love being out in God’s world and getting it all back in perspective. It’s wonderful, and I think you’ll be super refreshed.

    That Crossfit class sounds and looks crazy and fun at the same time; the way you try out different workouts and food always energizes me to be more adventurous.

    Have a great time in Yosemite and San Fran! My husband and I just moved to Sacramento, CA and haven’t been to Yosemite yet, but I hear it’s amazing. San Fransisco is lots of fun, my cousin and her husband own a shop down there called “terrific street” they have food, coffee, etc. it’s on 1534 Grant Ave, San Fran. Look it up if you want.
