Change is in the Air and It's a Good Thing

Friday, October 23, 2015


Lately I have noticed myself worrying a lot. And if I'm honest, what I worry about most right now is how fast life is moving and that my baby girl is almost two - two! She is changing every day and every day seems to go faster than the next. And there is absolutely nothing I can do to slow it down.  

As I was walking down the street the other day, I was suddenly struck by the awesome beauty of the changing trees around me. It dawned on me then, change can be scary, but it can also be incredibly beautiful. 

So, this weekend, I am embracing the inevitable force of change in life and the joy it can bring. From apple picking to carving pumpkins ​and jumping in leaves, fall is a season for fun. And it's the most fun when making memories with my inquisitive and joyful toddler. Luckily, there are so many ways to celebrate fall ​here in Chicago and I hope you'll embrace this season of change by getting out and exploring some of these fun (and free!) fests:

Stuff Happens, And It's Time To Do Something About It

I have a hard time watching the news. With one click I am instantly made aware of all of the horrible things that have occurred in the past 24 hours. ​ Turning on the TV sometimes just makes me want to cry. Because after I became pregnant, the world became an immensely scarier place to me. It has the capability to bring harm to this innocent little person who never asked to be brought into this world. Her father and I made the decision for her. And because of that we owe her a better world than the one that is depicted on the news every day.


​Hello Honey Crisp​: My Favorite Fall Apple Recipes

Friday, October 02, 2015

It is that time of year when you need to toss an extra blanket on your bed, pull on a warm sweater before heading out the door and turn off the air conditioning in favor of throwing open the windows. Fall is here.

Autumn heralds many things that I look forward to immensely - pumpkin spice lattes, I'm talking about you - but my absolute favorite thing about fall is apples. I am obsessed with honey crisp apples, and so I can't help adding an apple-related post this week to celebrate the advent of fall.
