Big (little) News!

Well hello! The headline kind of gives it away, but we have some very exciting news: we're having a baby! We are so thrilled for our little arrival due near the end of May! I am 17 weeks and wanted to start documenting my pregnancy here for posterity, since I view this blog as a journal of sorts. I thought I'd do the below ...

Chicago Botanic Garden 2015

In what has become an unintentional annual fall tradition, Dan and I went to the Chicago Botanic Garden a couple of weeks ago when his parents were in town visiting.

At the risk of sounding like a boring spinster (see what I did there? :), my new ...

Introducing…

...Teddy Ruxbin Waltz! For Dan's birthday a couple of weeks ago, I told him we were headed to a pumpkin patch recommended by a friend - the perfect ruse to pick up our new puppy! It was a gorgeous warm fall day and the changing colors were brilliant, so the drive was great in and of itself. When we got to the pumpkin ...
