goodbye Chicago.


It's my birthday on Monday and our last weekend in Chicago -- talk about bittersweet! It's also my last day in the office today (sooo weird). I have a lot of fun plans for the weekend and I am excited to spend some quality time with friends and family. I can't even get into how sad I am to be leaving Chicago (queue ugly cry) but let's just say I will miss the city and my friends and family a lot. Chicago is the place where I reunited with my best friends, started my career, met h, started this blog, got married, and bought our first home. But I am a big believer in "everything happens for a reason," and I am so excited to start a new chapter of my life in one of my favorite cities

There are more good things to come: Follow along on instagram to see my birthday celebrations (spoiler: there will be lots of food pics), our move to Charleston, and my trip to the Bahamas (the following week) for my brother's wedding. I have lots of great guest bloggers scheduled while I am out!
