Last weekend I had to fly to New Orleans. I thought I’d share an afternoon stroll down Royal through the French Quarter with you all. Enjoy! <3 More videos over on my YouTube channel. Click here to watch & subscribe.
Ok, well I wasn’t exactly hanging out with him. I was hanging out near him. As in, the office I work in is across the street from where they were filming Chicago Fire for the last couple of days. But that counts for something, right? Truth be told, I’ve never seen the show, but who […]
Yesterday Chrisa, Colleen, and I Ubered our way over to the 2015 Chicago Renegade Craft Fair. Jeez what a GORGEOUS day. And so many ways to spend all my money. I came home with a few great finds. Click below to get a pretty decent overview of the day. Links for the various artists are in […]
I got my first camera when I was 5. It was a Kodak Instamatic. I still own one, just for sentimental reasons. I’ve always had a camera nearby. My father is a very talented photographer and that was my area of study at SVA in New York. After SVA I had the amazing stroke of […]
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 […]
The organization obsession continues! Last night I was clicking around and one of the gals in my planner and organization group shared this video on how to make your own folder inserts. Oh my gosh. It’s a craft, a paper craft, and an organizational thing! IT’S ALL THE THINGS!
A few weeks back I went for my first round of trying on glasses from Warby Parker. The glasses themselves were cute, but I don’t think I’ve picked good options for my face. So let’s just chalk that last one up to a learning experience.
I’ve had a bit of an identity problem for several years now. I’m in the user experience (web) design field and maintain a portfolio of work at alanawaters.com. We found out a few years back that there is a call girl in Atlanta who goes by my name and uses the URL alana-waters.com. (not linked, […]
I have not had a new set of glasses in three years. So I recently decided to try Warby Parker, because some gals that I used to work with love it. I can definitely tell you that there were only one or two pair from this batch that I liked but I’ll try some more […]
We’ve been heading up to Door County, Wisconsin (have you ever been up there?) with our very dear friends Chrisa & Tom and their kids for a couple years now. Among a few of our traditions are: – A drive infused with cheesy 70’s radio tunes – The Epharaim arrival cocktail (my job) – Homemade […]
