Today Cree and I leave for Chicago....Yipee! It's all we can think about. We have our hotel reservations made, dinner reservations and then the rest will hopefully just fall into place. We have no real plans other than that....which I think will make for a relaxing and slightly spontaneous weekend.

After talking to a friend the other day who has completely switched over to film, we've decided Chicago is a great opportunity to use some film ourselves. We brought out the old cameras and we're ready to go. We even ordered some 8mm movie film, but it didn't make it in time. Maybe on our next mini vacation.

Have a lovely weekend! Bon Voyage!

PS. I just bought this font and I'm kind of in love.
PPS. Don't judge, but I want to see this movie bad.


  1. i hope you have a lovely time in chicago! i was there briefly when i was there in high school. i'm continually hearing amazing things about, so clearly i must go back!

    can't wait to see your photos!

    if we lived in the same town, i would go see the movie with you in a heartbeat! i'm having a hard time finding anyone who wants to go with me, haha. i might have to rent it all alone once it comes out on dvd...

  2. Hi, i've just stumbled upon your blog and i think it's lovely!
