Summer is just about half over and none have it has been blogged! (This was due to major technological failure at our house.

The living has been good and time has been… Continue reading Summertime!
“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.

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… Continue reading Holy. Cuteness.

Below are just a few of our outings. We squeezed in a trip to the park. We also… Continue reading Spring in Chicago
