Scenes From My Week (plus, a new series!)

I hope you had a great weekend! The past few days have been a bit of whirlwind for me, with lots of fun events and celebrations. I’m thankful for a day of rest to recoup from feeling under the weather with a bad cold (my voice is completely shot!). It’s a good time to focus in on building new content and features around here, one of which I’m excited to announce today: a showcase of my favorite places in Chicago. Think of it as a mini city guide of destinations fit for weekend brunch or a girls’ night out, or where to find a special gift and my favorite cup of coffee. Whether you’re a local Chicagoan or just visiting for the weekend, I’m excited to chronicle a few local places I love! The series certainly won’t overwhelm the blog (think 1-2 dedicated posts per month), but I hope to add a little local flavor to the mix. Let me know what you think!
