Monday is trying to come at me with everything it’s got and to that I say: put your love glasses on. 💌 The past few days have been pretty rough for me and I just haven’t felt like posting. But I want this to be a space where we share our highs and lows, as my gal @allie_bow said yesterday. You’re not alone in the ups and downs of life. But you best believe I’m turning these feelings into fuel and hunkering down to create some cool new things for ya. 🙏🏻 Take a walk, breathe a little, find something you’ve never done before and ignite that spark again!

CELEBRATE 🎉 TOMORROW IS THE WKND ❣️ Loving my new routine of a hot cup of coffee in the morning and an iced in the afternoon - this an iced red eye from @alliancebakery in Wicker. Also, their almond croissants are my FAVE. I will try others but theirs is #1

🌬Blow me away
🥦🥖🧀 @tempestamarket always knocks it out of the park with their fresh sandwiches. Today I grabbed the #10 and a little hump day sweet treat. Their gelato is my favorite and you can’t go wrong with Chicago Pothole! 😍🍫
Anyone else mix their chocolate ice cream with salty things? .

Finding light in the dark. Have you ever felt like your problems were so daunting and then you heard someone else’s? Watch out for a new post tonight. Can’t wait to share with you. 💌 | on the blog | 💌
I’ve been following a special non profit this year that I’m really excited to share with you. They’re unlike any other Chicago initiative to help women who are desperate for a safe place.📸 @frankiefabre .

Recipe for the day: recover. 😂
After a full weekend do you ever wish you could squeeze in another moment of rest? It’s been a busy weekend but I still have so much to do every evening this week! Might call for some extra coffee. Ya feel me?☕️

THANK YOU!!
Y’all came through on Friday when I was asking for recommendations and I’m so inspired! Found this spot on the walk to the coffee bar yesterday..☕️
🎨Hit up the #renegadecraftfair in Wicker Park if you get a chance! So many amazing vendors and yummy spots to eat along Division! We’re embracing sweater weather and living like it’s summer still with all the festivals. What a great place we live!

Taking a moment this morning to reflect on my week while preparing for a busy weekend! Let’s see.. #lakeviewartfestival this morning, #bourbonandbbq festival in #roscoevillage in the afternoon, but I’m still recharging after a crazy night! Have a lovely weekend, friends! 😘

Visited the most precious plant shop in @ourhumboldtpark and met the nicest man, @vegaadams who works at @adamsandsongardens 🌿 I recently purchased a rubber plant that was 1/2 price at Menard’s. They had no care instructions and I was fumbling around trying to figure out how to take care of a plant I was so excited about! 🍃 I visited this spot looking for a planter and received so much more than I anticipated. I got a lesson on plant care and can’t wait to stop by again and learn more from my new friends. 🌻 Stay tuned, there’s a great west neighborhood haul coming your way soon!

Find someone who looks at you the way I gaze upon my first cup in the morning😍 (which, by the way, was one of my biggest incentives to get up so early to watch the sunrise on the lake🤷🏼‍♀️)

🌊I may be a city girl but my heart is always on the water. 🚣🏼‍♀️
🔺Hey! If we just met, I’m Ashley and I’ve lived in Chicago for 5 years. I grew up in Wisconsin but always craved a faster pace. Chi was the perfect fit except when I moved here I didn’t know anyone else! 🔻Chicago can be a very transient city and it made finding lifelong friends really tough. I ventured out to new neighborhoods, often solo, and wanted to share my love for the energy that is Chicago. 🔺So Safe Haven was born and now I share my adventures here - a community of Chi-lovers that appreciate every neighborhood for the unique flavor it adds to the city experience. 🔻I’d love to meet you! Introduce yourself below⤵️Let’s be friends🤗

☕️FRIYAY🥧 
Celebrating with a slice of key lime hibiscus pie from @spinningjchicago 🔸this coffee house gives off retro vibes while comforting and inviting in the heart of Humboldt Park. Be sure to swing by for something sweet or a hot cup of coffee! Really enjoy the people who passionately work here and create a welcoming atmosphere✨

Met the coolest ladies @youthandyarrow in West Loop the other day! I had to find out what the story was behind this gorgeous truck and heard about this woman-owned business giving back to our neighborhood of Uptown! Check them out, they’re amazing😻
