A Look Back — and ahead to 2016

Wishing you a very happy new year! Before we fully embrace 2016, I wanted to take a minute and celebrate a few highlights from this past year. Looking back on 2015, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing brands, like Lilly Pulitzer, vineyard vines, Veuve Clicquot, The Four Seasons and The Everygirl. Many of you loved these posts: 15 tips for new bloggers9 ways to add character to your homebest spots for summer happy hour in Chicago and 10 tips for better iPhone pictures. Personally, I won’t soon forget this beautiful rooftop dinner, a winter visit to Colorado, a weekend full of 4th of July celebrations, cherishing fall in Lincoln Park and a chance to interview beauty icon, Bobbi Brown. I’ve met new friends, editors, designers and talented partners here in Chicago, as well as across the country. And, of course: YOU! Thank you for continuing to visit and support this blog I started 2+ years ago. Looking forward to 2016, I can’t wait to share exciting content in the works for this upcoming year. As always, feel free to chime in with comments at the bottom of each post, or connect with me on Instagram or Facebook. Here’s to another great year ahead!

  • Our favorite dinner party yet. ✨

I envisioned a classic, clean, and elegant look for our celebration. Dramatic long tables were illuminated by tall taper candles. A mix of monobotanical and garden style floral arrangements were placed for guests to enjoy. Oh, and the food! We served traditional southern fare 🍴 and plenty of spirits 🍸
