A very Happy Birthday indeed :)

I'd turn 31 a million times over again, 
if it could be a re-do of this :)

Congratulations, Kate & John!!

There are places and moments that take your breath away. 
And there are seldom people who have the same ability to do so. 
This wedding was the combination of all three :) 

To the new Mr & Mrs Sudic, 
you are beautiful inside and out!
I wish you a lifetime of happiness, 
and can't thank you enough for including me 
in the first day of the best of your life.

Gone Fishin'

Spending time with fam and lounging at my siblings lake house 
was positively the perfect way to spend a Labor-less Monday :)

Can you find the gnome?!?

Happy Labor Day-Off!

Hope you have a super restful Monday :)


Despite a disappointing season opener, 
it sure felt like we won last night ;)

Go Blue baby

My Nom-ie

Milestone Moment

Not gonna lie, 
I felt entirely nauseous at the car dealership
for many reasons -- namely: 
A) I went by myself to have the experience of negotiating 
a major purchase, especially given that
2) It took me years to save for and 
III) Trading in my Grandma Stella's car, without her there, 
made me really miss her :(

But I know she would have been so proud that I spent four hours with the sales person wheeling a really great deal (pun intended) and I think we may have crossed paths after
while I was floating on Cloud 9 
when bringing home my new (used) Nissan Juke :)


The Wizard of Oz-someness

A summer highlight, for certain!

Human Truth

Chicago Photo Scavenger Hunt

My friends Dustin & Carol put on an AMAZING photo scavenger hunt every August and I was finally in town this summer to participate! 

Codes & I won the "Most Creative" award 
for the challenge of "Hidden, but visible"...
Can you see my eyes?!

I can't take any credit for this since it was Cody's brainchild but I'm still laughing about the whole day :) 

25 challenges in 5 hours and an awesome adventure throughout the entire city. Yes, please, thank you! 

Can't WAIT for next year
