i heart chicago

After way too many months, I was able to go back to Chicago last week! It wass just quick visit, but it felt like being home again.

I spent the first 2 days attending the Pictage Partner Conference - which was awesome! I listened to speakers like Mike Larson, Liana Lehman, Nathan & Amber Holritz, David Greene, and more. They were incredibly inspiring and encouraging. I feel so motivated right now! I'm hoping to take what I learned and apply it to my business and my life - starting immediately!

Then I spent a couple extra days in the city with some friends. I spent much of my time working on my website. I love my design (thanks to Elizabeth Vincenty of Snapdragon Chicago) - but I find that it's been unbelievably difficult to choose the photographs. So, I dedicated a good chunk of my time in Chicago towards editing photos for the site. I still have a lot of work to go, but hopefully, I'll have some more links up and working soon!

While I was in town, I had the chance to stop by Real Life Weddings for a visit and see Steve & Chrisy and the rest of the team. It seems like every time I visit the studio, something is different. It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since I left for Boston!

I spent the rest of my trip catching up with good friends, eating good food, and just enjoying life in the city. I love the energy, the sound of people walking around outside, the gorgeous weather they're having, the view, the skyline, the rooftops, the familiarity of it all! I miss Chicago, and city life so much sometimes - what a blessing this was for me to spend a few days "back home."
