So I took these pictures after the Cubs VS Sox game on Sunday but probably only 30 seconds to a minute apart from each other and look at how different the clouds are! They were moving so fast that day! Even during the game their shadows would whizz by on the field.

seven'o'clock sun.

This is Chicago today. Sometimes I forget what this city looks like and all i need to do is look up.

the other world.

Photography underwater is so satisfying.

...Now if I could just learn how to hold my breathe for more than 10 seconds.

This looks fun...

Remember how exciting the ball pits were when you were 8? It was like I had never thought something that fun and amazing could ever exist. That is until I discovered a trampoline.

did i mention i love yellow?

storm blanket.

13 years of my life I grew up in a small town of 6,000 people. There are corn fields everywhere and nothing but flat Midwestern land. As boring as this place can get after spending all those years there doing the same things, it is actually beautiful to go back and visit. This is a picture I took when I went back to my parent's place this past weekend and there was a really gnarly storm. The tornado sirens were sounding and everything. This picture shows the storm clouds beginning to cover the sky. It's gorgeous.
I remember once I went to my good friends farm house and sat on top of her silo to watch a storm roll in over her families fields and it's a completely different perspective of a storm up there with so much space for the wind to play.

learning something new everyday.

My family and I went up north to stay in this cute little town in Wisconsin that has really interesting boutiques. My cousin found this sign in one of them and I thought it was hilarious! I had never heard that before!

when the business is slow...

I found this bag in the back at work all by itself and I can't believe we haven't had it on display its so pretty!! I want it!!

available @ Tous Chicago in the Water Tower Place on Michigan Ave.

I've had a facination with trees ever since we were taught about the growth and science of them in the 5th or 6th grade was it? My roomate has an incredible photograph of one with tons of roots and it looks like it is straight off of the Lion King. Which speaking of Lion King, if you haven't seen the play you need to go, it's amazing. These trees above are beautiful, giant, and silly.

oh and if you want to see other awesome nature photo's, has the best!

Street Art.

Some pretty cool graffiti illusions. It'd be so sick to watch someone create one of these, especially the one on the street that looks like water!
One of the coolest fashion shows I've ever been to had an after party at a lounge that hired two graffiti artists to paint on this huge wall next to the dance floor throughout the entire night. Nothing like great music, talented individuals, and performance art for a celebration.

let's go to Eygpt!

I want this as a Tapestry. Created in the early 20th century in Eygpt. Made of Cotton and linens originally meant for murals on tents during celebrations.


"Red Vinyard"- by Vincent Van Gogh

I am here at work and this painting seems to be the best expression of how i feel.
