I’m realizing that some coffee shops have become a source for my home inspiration. 🙈 Maybe bc I’m in nesting mode. #lakegeneva

I’m not going to complain about the heat. Just complaining that my feet have swelled up bc of the heat and not being able to enjoy a frosé or two to ease the swelling. 😭 Happy long holiday weekend of no more complaining from me, I promise. #chicago

I had to find another excuse to wear this pink dress...under my favorite tree and spot in Old Town when the tree is blooming with pink petals. And pretending it’s not in the 40s right now. Happy crazy spring day in #Chicago!#underthefloralspell

Happy French Friday! I was planning on sharing a recap of our few days in Paris on the blog but I fell asleep early last night 😴. But I wanted to share one thing that I learned on this trip - that some patisseries have tea rooms upstairs. Mind blown 🤯! I met up with @lacuisineparis here for tea and had a very good pastry with a very interesting name. I need to take a class at @lacuisineparis on my next trip to Paris though. #paris#parisisalwaysagoodidea#seemyparis#thefrancophiles

Meet me under the cherry blossoms 🌸. A few weeks ago I had cherry blossom envy from seeing all the pics in DC, NYC and Paris. So I went researching and hunting for cherry blossoms in Chicago. I just had to wait a long time for them to bloom and messaged @maggierussophoto to take some portraits of us today. This one was taken by my IG husband. But I can’t wait to see the professional pics. More info on where to find cherry blossoms on the blog. #chicago#chicagoinbloom#cherryblossoms#chicagoinpink

Hello DC (for 24 hours). I was planning on going for a walk this evening but the hotel bed is pretty comfy and my tour guide @frenchieyankee is in France speaking French and eating French food and exploring French things. I took this picture exactly a year ago when David was showing me #theotherdc.

Awkward pose bc it’s looks like I need to go to the bathroom, which I do very frequently lately. Sorry, TMI. 😬 Not sure my seat mate on the plane this afternoon will like the fact that I will need him/her to get up every 10 mins. 🤣 I know, I should’ve picked an aisle seat. #chicago#24weekspregnant
