Happy Friday friends! First of all, thank you so much for all the support and excitement following our announcement on Wednesday. So surreal! A few of the messages I read made me tear up a little and I’m so happy that so many of you are also so happy. I’ll do some more detailed posts in the coming months, but right now it just felt good to get it off my chest! If you have any questions or anything you want me address in those upcoming posts, leave me a comment or email and I’ll be sure to include them.… View Post

Hello and happy Friday! This week has been a mix of busy and slow; it’s kind of weird. I’ve been getting into the habit of being all-or-none again with work and I will fill up a whole day with things, then do nothing the next day. Then repeat.

Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you all had a lovely week.

It’s going to be glorious. To kick it off, here are some of the things… View Post

Pumpkin Pie Croissant Donut Apologies to those of you who aren’t in Chicago, but one of our local donut shops, Stan’s, just released this pumpkin pie croissant donut, dubbed “Le Stan.” Their original was intriguing, but… View Post

WHY HELLO THERE. It’s been a hot minute since I had a Five Things Friday post and really this whole month in general has been a little wonky in terms of a posting schedule. I took breaks when my brain simply wasn’t working rather than try and push out mediocre content, took a break for our trip to Greece, and then just worked on getting the momentum going again. I have some fun stuff coming up in the next couple months, so we should be getting back to our regularly scheduled program here in October. Thank you as always for… View Post
