So far we have a few outdoor activities we plan to do:
What are some other off-the-beaten-path ideas to do in Chicago with a 2-month-old in tow?

Special Delivery

Today our baby girl received her first international package in the mail :-)


It was a gift from our friends, Christian & Verena, who live in Bremen, Germany.

It came in brightly colored gift wrap that even coordinates with her nursery...

With a sweet card which says: "Hurray, Hurray...our little sunshine is here!"

And the gift itself was a set of red & white baby towels: a hooded towel, bib and bath mitt adorned with gingham hearts, sent "with love" from abroad.

Thanks for the thoughtful gift and special delivery, C & V!

Vintage Bazaar & Letterpress Love

Despite the nasty, rainy weather in Chicago this weekend, my sisters and I headed to the Vintage Bazaar on Saturday in Pilsen to see what we could find.


One vendor had a bucket full of wooden letterpress blocks that was calling my name.

$5 later I walked away with inky hands and a unique way to display my baby girl's name on a nursery shelf:

About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
