Anotha day, anotha cup. | I’ve been holding out on you guys. My FAVORITE place to grab a latte is @ctxchicago | it’s quaint with roots that run deep in Chicago. If I’m under the weather or have a friend not feeling well, I know their homemade cold tea blend will work magic. They have a wall of teas, barrels of coffee, and all the accessories you could want to enjoy your cup. Check them out, please!!

📚Thank you, next. The holiday season is one I’m always excited for. But if you’ve ever lost a loved one near the holidays, you know how tough it can be. Currently going through quite the change in family dynamics this year and it’s made me nervous about the approaching holiday times. Taking some extra time this year to reflect on what I’m grateful for and less time comparing. What blessings are you thankful for?!🦃⁣

I have been singing the soundtrack from White Christmas all day and I’m not mad about it. I can guarantee the Christmas decor is about to be in full swing by Thanksgiving. It’s only a month, people! Savor the season! ❄️What’s your favorite holiday movie?

Hustlin’ For Cider.. last year my girlfriend @ljandspaghetti asked me to run the Hot Cider Hustle and it surprised us by snowing all night before and the morning of! It was freezing but we talked the whole run and finished with a (relieved) smile. Kinda glad I’m not doing it this year! (Also, is anyone photogenic when they’re running?!) ⁣

Savoring the last sip of fall before 🌨️⁣
⁣
☕️ Did you see @sipcoffeechicago in my stories this morning? Stopped by there on the way to work and really enjoyed their mistletoe latte! 🍃⁣
⁣
🎄Thinking about creating a holiday date guide - who wants one?! I have yet to lock down a relationship in the years I’ve lived in Chi but I have gone on some killer first dates. Maybe you’ll find love, maybe you’ll find fun. One things for sure, Chicago is magical for the holidays.✨⁣
⁣
⚠️The only thought I had when I took this picture was that my gloves hands looked like a serial killer. What a weird thought - but really, why is it so cold😂⁣

♥️There’s a right we have. Some are fighting to use it. Some are fighting to keep it.📮
After 4 hours in line to vote I woke up this morning still aching over our country. Will my vote make a difference? What if our country doesn’t get better? 
But then I remembered that I’m not a superhuman who can change everything. I can use my voice. I can encourage others to use their voices. But I can also pray.🙏🏻 🏹 I haven’t shared much about my faith and I’m not sure why. This past year I’ve been doing some soul searching in many ways. After the church shooting it really shook me. Would I die for my faith? My country? And then I looked around at all the beautiful people I’m surrounded by. Yes. I would give everything up for them - and I know somebody who has done that same thing. 
Holding onto this today: “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him.” Romans 15:13

Growing up I thought if you were of faith, you held a certain political affiliation. Honestly, I don’t think God subscribes to that either. If he truly loves the people he created, why would he hold up a certain people group as “more worthy”? He doesn’t. His love is strong and overwhelms all fear. Praying for peace and love every day - but extra boldness for today, too.😘

Confession: my stroll last night may have led me to play Christmas music for a brief interlude. I’m not denying my obsession with Christmas..but I am trying to wait to break out my full Christmas-crazy-lady mode until after Thanksgiving🤶🏻♥️🎄 Check out my stories for a few holiday inspired storefronts in Chi🤗

*not ready to say goodbye to patio season* 😩 
One of my favorite things when I lived in Wicker Park was the open space to eat al fresco. 🌧On a rainy night I stopped by @paradiseparkchi and sampled some of their dishes! The stuffed potato skins were my FAVE. The pulled pork was so tender; I savored every bite. But as I dined alone I also realized this would be the PERFECT date spot. So whether it be a solo trip or a date night, make sure you enjoy this patio before the cute decor goes in storage ➡️ @blockclubchi just posted a huge list of things to do in Wicker this weekend and it’s fantastic! I linked it in my bio if y’all wanted to check it out. Wish I didn’t have such a crazy schedule this weekend otherwise I’d hit up the Chili cook-off and the Art/Music/Beer at the Hall in @therobeychicago .

I had the loveliest time coming out to support my girl @vickeevee_. It was a powerful conversation of what its like to be a girl online, who we need behind us, and how we can walk in confidence striving toward our destiny. I met so many fabulous women and even bumped into a few new faces on the Safe Haven page. Really great to meet you @jivetich!!😘

Now live on the blog:: 🌈CULTIVATING
 A CREATIVE
 COMMUNITY✨
Did you know I was featured in newspapers because of my overseas photography at eighteen years old? Yet when I moved to Chicago my camera collected dust because I had settled into the fear of not being good enough for the city. Unpacking that struggle on the blog tonight and I can’t wait for you to read it! .

Walking into the week with confidence. 
Walking into the week with courage. 
Walking into the week inspired. ✨ It always takes the weekend for me to reset from the week I’ve lived and the week upcoming. Usually it’s lots of journaling, introvert time, and quality time with great friends. This weekend it meant not looking for the next adventure but just taking a healthy break from the noise of social media. ✨How are you walking into your week?
