    blue peplum state topThis is the last look before I start blogging about our amazing trip here in Hawaii. We are one week down and three more weeks to go on our month stay. Unfortunately, the Giant goes back home in a week with my parents. Boo!! We’re trying to soak in as much quality time with them as possible. Week one has been truly breathtaking. Every. Single. Day. So looking forward to what the other three weeks has to offer! Tomorrow I’ll be blogging about my first mother and daughter spa experience. Can’t wait!!blue peplum state topblue peplum state topblue peplum state topblue peplum state topblue peplum state topblue peplum state topblue peplum state top

    I’ve been working like mad these past few months. It’s been a super season so I’m not complaining. Work has been especially busy because a lot of clients knows I’m leaving for Florida in a week so they’ve been scheduling their sessions almost every day. Definitely looking forward to some vacation with the fam bam! I may not even pick up the camera at all? Never mind, who am I kidding??

    Was everyone ready for this past weekend’s first Chicago snow? We weren’t! Our family holiday session was this past Saturday. Originally it was supposed to be shot outdoors, and it got changed super last minute to indoors because of the snow. Normally, I’m all about the gorgeous snow to use as a backdrop but since we have three kids, and one is just eight months, outside in the blowing snow was just a bad idea. We rented a loft in the city the day before for the shoot and on the day off, after my hair and makeup had been done, we decided to cancel the shoot because the roads were just so slick. Cars were slipping and sliding like crazy. It wasn’t worth the risk. It all worked out though because we rescheduled our shoot to the following morning. Whew! Crazy weekend but it all worked out. I’ve already shared some teasers on my IG, can’t wait to show you guys more!

    Peplum in the City

    Next month will be two years since we’ve made the move from city to suburbs. I’m still mourning this move. Even typing this gets me so emotional and in tears. I miss living in my beloved city so much. Yes, I go there a few times a week but it’s not the same. My heart breaks every. single. time I drive away from it. I don’t know if I’ll ever adjust and till this day, I still refuse to call suburbia home. I don’t think I ever will?? Thankfully, I’ve met a great group of mommy friends that’s making this somewhat easier. Living less than 10 minutes away from my mom is also super nice too. But still, my heart still hurts. Everyday. Little G asks to go into the city almost everyday. He loves seeing the “L” trains and going to the parks where it’s filled with kids (you’ll be lucky if you see a handful of kids at the parks in suburbia). It saddens me when I hear that because I know exactly how he feels. When we’re here, my heart swells and I’m smiling from ear to the ear the entire time.
