Snapshots from My Week

posted on: Friday, November 22, 2013

Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week and are looking forward to Thanksgiving right around the corner. Here are a few highlights and snapshots from my week...

• I'm loving the sights and sounds of the holiday season around the city. These little trees are placed all along the Chicago River near my office, and give the most magical and illuminating view of the water and Chicago architecture.
• Happy hour at Pump Room is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Stunning décor, fabulous drinks, and some pretty iconic history - count me in.
• I saved a few pretty pennies and purchased my first DSRL camera! I'm incredibly excited to capture more moments and really take my photos to the next level. I've also started journaling and scribbling notes in this journal to organize my thoughts and inspiration for future posts. :)
• Shopping with my Mom this week was so fun! We admired these colorful fresh flowers at Crate & Barrel. How pretty!

How was your week? Do you have any fun plans this weekend?
