Marriage Mondays- You are what you eat

Marriage Mondays- You are what you eat

I still remember the lyrics to a song I was taught back in the 4th grade: “you are what you eat, from your head to your feet, so be sure to eat food that’s good for you…” Of course we all know we should eat our vegetables, try to buy organic and non-GMO, avoid the fast food (we all watched “super size me”, right?), etc. etc. Luckily we have many chefs and restaurants making the extra effort to not only […]

 

Danielle and Patrick are engaged!

Danielle and Patrick are engaged!

When Danielle first met Patrick, she saw beyond the stone-washed faded jeans and white tennis shoes, and instead focused on the cute smile and the fact that he kept making her laugh. Now he still makes her laugh (but his wardrobe has undergone a few adjustments). When you meet that special someone that makes you want to change for the better, to be the best version of yourself when you are with them, you have to hold on to them. […]

 

Make way for momma!

Make way for momma!

Now that I’m older, many of my friends (and family too) have not only found themselves in relationships, but they have jumped head first into parenthood. It’s fascinating to watch the transition… seeing bodies change, lifestyles are flipped upside down, and sleep deprivation puts relationships to the test. But there is no question that those little bitty additions to the family are loved beyond measure, just one smile from that tiny face can make all your troubles disappear. I met […]

 

Chelly and Kyle are engaged

Chelly and Kyle are engaged

When Kyle spotted a sprightly red head walking across campus, he knew he had to find a way to meet her. He was persistent, and it paid off. Be ready for your cheeks to hurt from laughing when spending time with them, they keep the punches coming. Not only do they laugh and joke a lot, but sometimes they bust out their own little private dance party, or maybe a spontaneous stare down, there’s just no telling. The fact is […]

 

Marriage Mondays- Life’s Too Short

Marriage Mondays- Life’s Too Short

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Happy 2012! With a new year comes new things, and although we all do our best to welcome change sometime’s it’s sad to see something go. With the end of 2011 I say goodbye to one of my favorite quirky Chicago locations, Life’s Too Short. This old bar-front had been closed for years, acquiring a nostalgia with all its peeling paint as well as additions from many of Chicago’s graffiti artists. […]

 

Lindsay & Philip- engaged!

Lindsay & Philip- engaged!

Meeting one’s soulmate in a jewelry store seems highly unlikely, if not impossible, simply because most people only enter a jewelry store when looking for a gift for their special someone. Out of sheer coincidence, Philip let his associate go home early and went to the store himself to pick up jewelry they were using on a feature film he was assistant director to. He stayed to chat with the owner for a few minutes, just long enough to cross […]
