Life Lately – February 2020

Meet: William!

I introduced you to our newborn son, William, who arrived this December. What a bundle of joy he is! Since his birth, daily life has been a blissful daze of eat, sleep, play — repeat.

We’ve had a stretch of warmer weather in Chicago — and it’s been so nice to get outside! Here are the beautiful blue and white spring/summer windows currently at Dior on Rush Street.

I couldn’t not document baby William’s very first stroller ride! We enjoyed a long walk through our neighborhood on Sunday, stopping at The Goddess and Grocer, before walking the 606 Trail in Bucktown.

Kevin’s company party happened to fall on the same day of my birthday — making for an extra special celebration. It was our first big night out since having our baby 6 weeks prior.

Chuan Spa at The Langham

I enjoyed an incredibly relaxing spa day at The Langham. I highly recommend visiting if you’re in pursuit of a little self-care, or want to treat someone special to a luxe treatment.
