Beyond the ‘gram

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll catch little glimpses of daily life and happenings around the blog and in Chicago. But, if I’m being totally honest here: As much as I love the platform for creative imagery and connecting with others, it does make me a little sad some things get lost on Instagram. I’m sure some of you can relate… a lot of life happens outside of what’s shared on social media, for better or for worse! So, I thought I’d share a few additional snapshots of places, people and memories that’ve made me smile these past months. They include countless concerts, days on the lake, trips home to Wisconsin to visit my parents, seeing my niece grow to be the cutest little toddler, late night fun with friends, exploring the city, baseball games, biking, paddleboarding and golfing, weekends with extended family, attending beautiful weddings and celebrations, and much much more. Sure, Instagram is a pretty place, but I also love looking back through these less-than-perfect photos to remember moments that bring me such joy. I hope you enjoy seeing them, too!

  • 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 🍸
