Welcome to my tiny corner of the world! We'll discuss all of the beautiful things in life: delicious food, romantic weddings, adorable puppies, impeccable design and... likely a bit more food. I've always been a left-brained girl with a right-brain that I can't shut up. My days consist of planning corporate meetings & events, running reports, and checking-off lists, while I daydream of becoming a paperie master, tablescape boss, and design extraordinaire.

When I'm not chatting with you here, you can find me eating at my favorite Chicago restaurants or recommending said-establishments to friends and colleagues. I could discuss food for hours, and anytime my husband John and I vacation, we choose a destination based off of its culinary credibility. In my down time, I love cuddling my man on the couch (drowning in rosé watching plug-in-TV-show-name-here), losing myself in Instagram, getting a blowout, online shopping, or catching up with the best friends a girl could ask for.
