A road trip, a wedding, and so much sister love!

Over the weekend, I put on my brave face, packed up our van, guzzled some Dunkin’ and embarked on a brief, crazy, and FUN trip to see my family in Chicago. Nothing gets done without this stuff. ^^^ After Cece finished school on Friday, I drove myself and the girls to Wisconsin Dells. Even though…

Summer days drifting away…

Well, fancy seeing you here again! Through no fault of my own (just kidding), this has been a summer of massive technological failure and blogging got moved to the back burner for a good long time. Finally our computer is fully functional, my shattered iPhone has been replaced, and I’ve got my blogging pants on….

Summertime!

Summer is just about half over and none have it has been blogged! (This was due to major technological failure at our house. Our hard drive crashed at the beginning of summer and we just recently have a working computer again.) Anyways, we are into July. The living has been good and time has been…

Fall in Chicago

 “My heart’s in two places. And I’m feeling like a candle burning at both ends. Until it flickers.”-Rosi GolanHalf of my heart is always with my family in Chicago. I wish there was a way I could somehow live in two states and simultaneously and let my girls experience the best parts of each place. Until teleporting is…

April via iPhone

I’ve been a wee bit behind on backing up my iPhone photos. Now that they are finally off my phone, here is an overdue post of my favorites from April.     ^^^ Joe’s Birthday ^^^     ^^^ Being out and about ^^^       ^^^ Snuggling at home ^^^             ^^^…

Rosie’s First Trip to Chicago

                  Last week I drove by myself with both girls to Chicago so Rosemary could meet my family for the first time. (Some called me brave, some called me crazy, and I think both of those statements are accurate.) Honestly, the travel part was  a little exhausting. But…

(More) November via iPhone

                      The past couple of weeks have been busy, but such fun. I took Cece on her first airplane ride and we got to spend a few fantastic days in Chicago. She did amazingly well on both flights. I was so proud! I loved every…

Doodling

                                        Since I honestly don’t know much about photo-editing, I try to take the “less is more” approach. At least that’s what I was doing until this week when A Beautiful Mess (one of my absolute favorite blogs) released their…

April Instagrams

(Also known as lots of photos of Cece posed with various friends and family. I need to work on something called “variety”…)                    

Holy. Cuteness.

If not for the teamwork between Rose, Sarah, and I, we wouldn’t have been able to get these great shots of the kids at the zoo.   Sarah and I have discussed that Will and Cece don’t have to get married. But, I mean, we wouldn’t be against it. And maybe they would have the…
