Where are you from and where do you currently reside?
Born and raised in Chicago and still happily residing here.

How did you decide to start blogging? What gave you the courage to go for it?
About 4 years ago, my only sister moved to Seattle and her departure left me feeling pretty empty. At this point in my life, I was already obsessed with a handful of blogs so I thought, if not now then when? My first blog was definitely a very rough attempt, but I love going back and seeing those old posts and reminding myself of who I was then and how much I’ve evolved.

What can people expect when they visit your blog?
Through trial and error I have discovered that I’m not a very good writer. I’m definitely a visual person and so I try to make my blog a feast for the eyes. I have recently teamed up with a local photographer to bring more original photographic inspiration.

What are your favorite blog posts you’ve ever written? 
1. My top two are definitely my two Creative Chicago features here and here.

2. a personal series // a collaboration

What kind of camera do you use?
My husband surprised me with a Canon 5d Mark II last year for Christmas so I’m learning how to properly use that amazing camera, however, lately I’ve been relying on my iPhone 4 way too much.
Any other words of wisdom for Everygirls out there?
My friend’s mom used to tell us, if it’s not fun anymore then stop doing it. Life is too short to not be having fun.
