I recently accepted a new Art Director role at a really wonderful agency in Chicago, and while I was between the two positions I decided to pack Sophia & Will up and go on a road trip. We decided to head to Great Smoky Mountains National Park to do some camping in our vintage trailer […]
In a couple of weeks I’m loading up the Avion with Fi & Will and heading to Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a few days. I’ve been once with my oldest daughter, but that was over 10 years ago. We’re all looking forward to another fabulous road trip. Earlier this summer we all drove […]

We’ve been all over the area this summer in our little camper, but I hadn’t been anywhere alone yet until this past weekend. I joined the Sisters on the Fly last spring after getting tons of inspiration from the book of the same name and this weekend was the first time that I was able […]
January in Chicago is nothing if not anti-climactic. It’s the end of the holiday buzz and the beginning of the long and tortured march toward Spring. The only way to get through a Chicago winter is to find ways to enjoy the cold weather. So once we realized this weekend would top out at a […]
GEEKS! We’re dirty, nerdy geeks. You know you’re a grown up when the thing you want most in the world is a motion-activated camera to put out by your bird feeders so you can sneek peeks at your avian buddies. So my Christmas present to us was the Wildgame Innovations 6.0 Mega Pixel Digital Game […]
An antique cast iron weather vane for the backyard of the new house. Mama bird with her 3 babies. That’s me! 🙂 I love it. Thank you Fifi, Will, and Dave!
