Drink Your Veggies

I have a confession. I haven't always been a vegetable lover. I still don't like peas, and I'm not sure if that will ever change, but I've recently discovered a new way to eat veggies - and that's to drink them!

Ch-Ch-Changes

This summer has been a time of transition. With my amazing husband's encouragement and support, I quit my established career to pursue my dreams.

Family Photoshoot

Hubs and I had the most amazing engagement photoshoot in 2012 with Kate Miller Photography. Kate and her husband Joel shoot together in a vintage-inspired, artistic style. We absolutely love Kate and Joel and would've had them photograph our wedding in a heartbeat had we been married locally in IL and not across the country in… Continue reading Family Photoshoot
