Weekend Roundup

No summer would be complete without a trip to Ravinia. For those of you who aren't familiar, Ravinia is a fabulous outdoor venue where you can bring your own food and wine and listen to live music under the stars. In my mind, it has all the elements of a perfect summer evening with friends. Saturday night, Lauren and I (along with the boys) made our annual trip. Good wine, great food and even better friends made for a perfect evening. Oh, we saw Chicago perform (so fitting!)

I also acquired a couple of new items for our living area. I love the texture this pillow gives to the room.

This is our new friend - not only is he charming, but he doubles as a vase. He lives on the bar for now.

Wednesday evening the boy and I had a little date night at The Southern. The truffle mac and cheese was bananas. The mixologists behind the bar were genius as well. Try the Southern Mule.

It was a beautiful late summer weekend in Chicago - hope you all had a lovely weekend as well!
