My version of heaven has an Olympic-sized pool, @thecontainerstore and @nationalwestern Stockyards. I love this pool. ...

I’m so happy that the ARC at @illinois1867 allows members to bring young children in the outside pool. My little one had a blast tonight. Where is your favorite place to swim with kids in the summer? #discoverillinois ...

Sometimes you just need a glad of wine in the middle of a Saturday afternoon… ...

I liked this outpost near the Garden of the Gods- I picked up a small gift for a special friend. ...

One bag of books for me and one for my child. Popped in to grab lunch while I was here. And now a moment of zen before I return back to the madness of work.. ...

Last night, I took the baby with the stroller on the Post Oak Trail at Giant City State Park to explore (still WIP) and this morning we started the Nature Trail. It was marked “rugged” so we aborted. I wanted an easier trail for my little one. Arrowwood trail is marked “easy” and near the Visitor’s Center so it was a better fit. My little one needed a nap so we took a scenic drive to @altovineyards about 25 Minutes away. What a lovely morning! ...

Snowy walk this morning. ...
