Happy weekend, all! I never planned on being gone so long, but somehow life has gotten in the way of my creative pursuits. I’ll be back soon to fill you in on all that’s been going on with me.

In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~M

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach

Happy Friday, everyone! After the last couple of weeks I’ve had all I can say is thank God for Laguna!

The stress of orchestrating a mammoth move has been, to say the least, overwhelming.

Memories of my trip to Southern California last month are helping to keep me calm (sort of :) ).

Only half of my move is complete and we are not yet settled. I’m hoping beyond hope that all the stars align and that we’ll finally be settled in our new home sometime next week.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Hope you find countless reasons to smile.

Make it a good one! xox~M

Had an amazing time in Southern California. Stayed in beautiful Laguna Beach where it was blue skies and sunshine every day. Scenes like the one above were abundant and nearly convinced me that I should turn my short-term trip into a permanent stay. But alas, commonsense prevailed and I did in fact, make it to my plane on time :(

I’m back in rainy, cold Chicago. (What was I thinking?!)

Since I’ve been home I’ve been up to my eyeballs in boxes, packing up my home for a big move and another new adventure.

I’ve missed being here on a regular basis but I hope to be back here soon. In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~ M

Heading to Southern California tomorrow to take a break from the maddening treadmill I’ve been on lately orchestrating our move and everything else in-between.

Looking forward to filling you in on all the details when I return.

Until then, I hope you enjoy today’s image from my favorite city – my city – Chicago.

Have a great day! xo~M

House Hunting

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? I spent mine enjoying the beautiful weather and doing some house hunting.

Not sure where we’ll ultimately end up, but this home certainly would have knocked our socks off  had we been wearing any :)

Pretty breathtaking, right?!
