happy occasions

It's been a little over a year since we said 'we do' and I can't be more thrilled that we are going to have an anniversary photoshoot with Kinsey Mhire Photography. Looking back on the last 5 + years together, Alex and I don't have quite enough (in my opinion) photographs documenting our journey through life together. We're taking this step towards a yearly documentation of our lives so we can always look back and remember what we were feeling in that exact moment and to remind ourselves how blessed we are to have each other.

We were engaged at Mauthe Lake in Kettle Moraine State Park

Dose Turns 2!

We're thrilled to be at Dose Market this Sunday the 9th for their 2nd anniversary of Dose. As we were one of the original Dosers, we are so happy that such an incredible market was born in Chicago to bring the very best of food and fashion to the city. We hope to see you there!

p.s. there will be beer and cocktails!

Pendelton Portland Collection

Pendleton has done it again with their Portland collection. I want one of everything!

Pendleton Woolen Mills, the Oregon-based company with origins dating back to 1863, presents its second season of The Portland Collection for Fall 2012. After the highly successful first season launch, The Portland Collection returns with its heritage-influenced designs for menswear, womenswear and home. With fabrics woven exclusively in Pendleton’s Northwest Mills and all of the apparel produced in theU.S.A., The Portland Collection continues to be a leader in the resurgence of domestic production.
