Homemade Bruschetta

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was filled with tons of time outside enjoying the beautiful springlike weather. It feels like a completely different city when the sun is out and shining! I’m going to savor this weather while it lasts because it looks like it’s back to winter next weekend… We also had a few friends over (my grad school BFF and a few newer friends) – everyone brought an appetizer to share and it worked out perfectly. Just the right amount of food! I wanted to make something that I knew everyone would enjoy, but also be […]

Happenings 2.17.17

Where to start? I feel like we have so much to catch up on since my last update 10 days ago 🙂 I’m writing this with my office window OPEN and listening to the sounds of the city right outside our door.

January 2017 in Review

I can’t believe I’m actually writing this post. ONE MONTH (almost) of 2017 in the books. I’m happy and sad – happy because we are thisclose to being settled in Chicago. Sad because I hope I didn’t wish the days away – I really try to make the most of each day but at the same time hate living in limbo. I’m going to savor every minute of February 🙂 As many of you know, this month was consumed with moving from Minneapolis to Chicago. We made the drive down in a blizzard on Wednesday, spent 3 nights at Hotel Lincoln […]
