A Few Things...

A tranquil spot to sit. The mosaic pool is beautiful. 

The most simple words go a long way. 

A perfect easy side dish for summer.

Lovely living room with chalkboard wall and piano for singing tunes.

What an amazing weekend. My friend Katrin came to town for a visit and it couldn't have been more perfect weather with beautiful sunny skies. We got to walk for miles along the lake and Gold Coast, wander through Bucktown shops and eat a leisurely brunch outside, talk about every single topic under the sun, and cook dinner on a mellow Sunday night. I can't wait for all of my east and west coast friends to come enjoy Chicago summer with me!
