We were just in Chicago for Create + Cultivate which I was speaking at and I was soo nervous and worked up over nothing haha it wasn’t even as bad as I thought. I get so nervous to speak in public ah. While I was at my conference Atticus and David went on a little cruise with Odyssey Cruises and watched the air and water show! They gave Atticus a little captain hat and had brunch and danced on the dance floor – I was dying at the videos of him shakin’ it haha.

The way home from Chicago was less than amazing .. we got to the airport extra early because last time we were in Chicago we missed our flight because traffic was insane so we played it safe this time. Then they told us there was a two hour delay which throughout the night turned into a six hour delay. It was pretty miserable .. like the kind of miserable where it can’t get worse so it ends up being hilarious? We were literally laughing like how can this be? haha. But the poor people headed to Boston had it even worse and had an even longer delay 🙁 there were lots of upset people in the airport that night! We got home at like 5:30am and blacked out all the windows and we all slept in super late 🙂

PS Thanks to everyone who came to our meet up in Chicago! We couldn’t stay long cause we had to head to the airport but it was so fun to get to chat with you guys and meet some of your babies!! xo

Also, if you’re in the Ft. Lauderdale Florida area, on Saturday the 22nd I’m hosting an event at Neiman Marcus. I’d love to meet you there! For more information check out the invitation below!

  1. What kind of camera do you use? All your photos are breathtaking <3 Your little family is so cute

  2. I hope you loved Chicago (outside of the horrible O’Hare experience)! My husband and I LOVE living here. I was actually in Treasure Island, FL with my grandma and granny while you were in Ft. Lauderdale – talk about some insane heat that week… sheesh!

    1. We loved it!! It was such a blast!! What a great place to live 🙂 And so hot there huh?! I was only there for 24 hours so it was a quick trip for me! I hope you had a great time!! xo

      1. We actually stayed at a time share condo my Granny (97) has had since the 80’s, so it was good to be back since it had been 9 years since I visited! I can tell you that a trip with a 97 and 76 year old is very interesting… haha! I would encourage anyone who has an opportunity to spend time with their grandparents like that to definitely take it. I have so many priceless videos and memories that I could never have had otherwise!

    1. That is the sweetest comment!! Thank you so much!! And I agree haha! It’s always more funny after the fact 😉 xo

  3. Beautiful pictures. They*re just breathtaking!

  7. Nothing gives me baby fever worse than reading your blog – my husband knows Atticus by the name “the cutest baby in the world” because that’s how I refer to him when I’m showing your pictures to people. We can hardly wait until the time is right for us to start our family 🙂

  14. I love the new look to your blog 🙂 You look stunning in this black dress! I was wondering if you can do a post on skincare during pregnancy? I’m currently pregnant also and I’m trying to find better ways to handle all the chaos that’s happening to my skin. I LOVE Arcona as well do you still use them? You’re beauty posts have always helped me out. Hope you have a great day!!

  15. That cookie for Atticus is so cute, or should I say for Captain Atticus!
    Airport stories are so funny to look back on. They’re definitely horrible in the moment (and I can only imagine how stressful they are with a baby), but a funny thing to remember.

  18. I love the necklace peek-a-boo through your dress. 🙂 And let me guess you were flying out Monday? My husband had a flight out on Monday from Chicago and was delayed around 4 hours, so he didn’t get home until like 3AM, so crazy! Also, I was so sad that I wan’t able to go to Chicago with my hubby because I wasn’t able to do the meet up with you! Maybe one day? 🙂
