Life is about to get absolutely crazy…events every week, shoots back to back, family functions galore, and the first wedding of the year to kick it all off. I have been spending a lot of time organizing and getting systems in place to make this year run as smoothly as possible once the crazy hits, but mostly I have been spending a lot of time living over the past few weeks. Chicago has blessed us with some unseasonably amazingly gorgeous weather and I have been taking advantage of it, at every turn! Spending time with the ones I love and loving every minute of this calm before the storm.
1. Settling into my new client meeting space at Mignonette Bridal! 2. Photographing and having fun with the beautiful Kpoene of Mignonette. 3. Bubbly to brighten the days of a few special gals! 4. Fingerpainting with our neice! 5. Okay…I didn’t really participate in the painting, but I did spend the afternoon watching and snuggling with this special boy. 6. Date nights! 7. MASSIVE To-do lists to get me organized for wedding season. 8. Strawberry lunches, yum! 9. Still decorating and adding to our new home, bit by bit. This month’s addition is this fabulous Crate and Barrel lamp that I just love! (Thanks Pops!) 10. Cuddling with the puppies. 11. More puppy cuddling on a lazy day. 12. Basking in the sunshine on our first real day enjoying our patio this year. 13. Us. Happy as clams in the sunshine. 14. Grilling out! Yummy vegetables in every color. 15. Doppler hanging out on the patio. 16. Candles and lights to take in every last second of an amazing Spring evening.

1. Taking our little ballerina neice to dance class! 2. So much cuteness in one room!!! 3. Doppler is loving car rides! He refuses to stay in the back of the car and has now taken to sticking his head out of the sunroof! Eeek! 4. Donning my glitter skirt for Jasmine Star’s The Fix tour. 5. The Showit/PASS bus, in all its glory. 6. Jasmine breaking it down in Chicago. 7. Playing coy with her after the talk. 8. Puppies laying in the sunshine. 9. Those cheeks!!! We clearly cannot get enough of our neice and nephew! 10. Randomly found some green in my closet to wear on St. Patrick’s Day! 11. After some margaritas and Mexican food with friends on St. Patrick’s day (of all days), we hit up the Mayne Stage for a bluegrass band. Such a random, but totally fun night! 12. Laughing with my love. This makes my heart happy! 13. The girls on St. Patrick’s night, gabbing, laughing, and singing! Such fun with them! Thank god we never made it to the Kareoke place! 14. A dining adventure at Alinea with the pops! This course was eaten off pillows filled with Jasmine air. 15. Our iceberg centerpiece held shots of beet juice. 16. And our final course, a ‘chocolate pinata’! Followed by an evening at home on the couch with my better half, sitting on the edge of our seats to watch our favorite zombie show! Perfection, I say!
