New Year's Eve in Chicago

Like many of us, I am currently wondering what to do on New Year's Eve. We typically pick the more mellow route of dinner at home or maybe out at our favorite local place, Piazza Bella, located in Roscoe Village. They still have some reservations left and Tina's lasagna will knock your socks off.

Tips for Mailing Out Holiday Cards

This week I mailed my company Holiday card and our personal card to friends, family and business friends. Every year I work with Jenna at Clementine Ink to do my cards and every year we wrack our brains for a fun and new idea. This year we channeled a new trend you will see in stationary which is Bling! Yes, 3 red crystals on the holly that I had on my gorgeous letterpress cards.Stuffing, sealing and stamping takes a lot of work so here are my quick tips on getting those Holiday cards out and staying sane. 

Thanksgiving in Chicago

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love to cook and will be cooking for about twelve people on Thursday. But is wedding planning keeping you so busy that you don't want to cook? No worries, Chicago has some great options if you want to eat out.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas to everyone today and Happy Holidays. May today bring you close to your family and friends as you celebrate this Holiday Season. I am just back from a lovely trip to Jamaica (9 whole days of golf, sun bathing and relaxing)!
