What the Heck Happened in April?


Sit Stay Read held their annual Bark 'n Ball!


I got to meet and photograph these awesome pups who help low-income kids in Chicago Public Schools build their reading and writing skills. They were the best-behaved guests of honor I have ever met!

Only One Image Left to Complete the 100 Days of Color Challenge on Instagram! (and it’s been a lot more than 100 days….)


We instituted a new rule in our household: No Phones In Bed. It’s bad for your eyes, it’s bad for your head, it’s bad for your sleep….

And guess when I usually did my Instagram posting? Yup. In bed. The new rule has but one unfortunate side-effect: I’ve fallen out of the habit of posting everyday. But I’m getting a lot of reading done!

There’s a new badge on my website - 2019 Offbeat Bride Featured Vendor!


I was an Offbeat Bride myself, and with this resource’s help my husband and I were able to create the ceremony and reception to our tastes and personalities. As a wedding vendor, I will encourage you to have all the non-traditional rites, dresses, flowers, and food that you didn’t think you were “allowed” to have, just like I learned from Offbeat Bride.

I’m proud to be a 2019 Featured Vendor!


Thanks for being awesome!
