summer break + link love.

Hello there! The weeks have flown by since we moved back to Illinois, and we've been keeping busy with family and friends. It's been so much fun taking Violet to the library, and the park, and she loved visiting the DuPage and Chicago Children's Museums, Blackberry Farm, and Brookfield Zoo. I almost forgot how wonderful summers in the Midwest are, and my baby won't be little forever -- so I want to soak up every minute I can with Violet. She is such a curious toddler and I love taking her to new places. And I don't want to spend that time worrying about blogging, so I've decided to take a little break for summer. I might pop in here and there, but for now I'm going to focus on enjoying summer with my baby boss and the warm weather while it lasts!
Here are a number of links and things that I've been loving lately:
Feel good travel destinations 
- I wish we visited Asheville, NC when we lived in South Carolina - it looks so beautiful!
- I'll be checking out this list for kid friendly activities in Chicago
- I love the concept behind Naja - a luxury line of lingerie that empowers female employees, contributes to charities, and is eco-friendly. The line offers nude underwear for all skin tones and beautiful bras (I want this bralette!) AND if all of that wasn't enough Gina Rodriguez is a co-founder! 
- I just started reading this book and this one is next on my list
- Beautiful wanderlust instagram accounts to follow
- Vi really loves this book and this play house
mmmmm best new burgers
- I bought this adorable two-piece romper set for a friend. hello #babyfever !!
