I live a simple life, exploring the great outdoors, and slowly the world with my husband and our 2 amazing little girls. I am a Shutterbug, I am constantly taking pictures, my camera is like an extra appendage! I love to cook, craft, bake, travel and just enjoy life! I've been told I'm a "Jane of all trades" and I like to tell people I have Creativity A.D.D. My interests are completely random and can range from making hair bows for little girls to "dumpster diving" and refinishing furniture with my best friend! I paint, I use power tools(and I'm quite proficient with a hot glue gun), and I just learned to sew this year, so I'm excited to see what will come of that! I hope you enjoy tagging along for this crazy journey of randomness!

Chicago, Chicago, that toddling town...

Well, it's official, I'm in love with the Windy City...and their pizza!! (Giordano's...much love!) The hubby and I recently paid our first(of hopefully many to come) trips to Chicago, IL for Mother's Day. Not only did we get to spend some quality time with my In-Laws(it was kind of a "surprise" visit for Mother's Day, it's been a while since we've seen them!) it was also a great opportunity to travel and show the kids what a Big City really looks like! They had a blast, and enjoyed being able to say they saw one of the TALLEST buildings in the WORLD-and not be exaggerating! From the food, to the views, and the wonderful cab and trolley ride experiences, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Ferris wheels hold such an abstract beauty...I can't resist snapping a few shots!
