Chicago Skyline (aka I would really love your help before Friday at noon!)

A year ago today, I was dressed up and ready for my first big blogger event.

A year ago today I met Casey and Emily, and fell in love with them both immediately.

A year ago today I found out that Chicago is my new favorite city!

A year ago today I had no clue I would be atop the ferris wheel on the Navy Pier
taking one of my favorite pictures of all time.

I entered this photo into Aimee‘s monthly photo contest and was chosen as a finalist!

There are a lot of other amazing photographs, and I’m glad that I’m a part of this group.

But if you could take a moment and click here and vote for me, I’d really appreciate it.
Voting ends Friday at noon!

You Capture {Black & White}

Lately I’ve been missing my mojo.
My blogging mojo.
My photography mojo.
My keeping up with everything mojo.

But you guys know how much I love black and white pictures.
So when I saw that You Capture was all about b&w, I couldn’t resist.

When I took Carter out to get all his school supplies we had to stop at the grocery store on the way home.
He insisted that we buy some roses for me!
I love that kid!
And it was just what I needed to lift my spirits.

Because this? ┬áThis is how I’ve felt all week long.

My kids swirling around me.
Complete chaos ruling the day.


And what fun is taking black and whites without doing a quick selfie pic?

I love the light in my bathroom!!
