Chicago, My Sister and Veggies...

Yeah, only two of those go together, but I've got next to nothing :)

Before I left for Chicago, we had a garden picking session.  Can you guess who picked the carrots?  I had to snap a pic quickly as the boys were about to swipe the tomatoes...

I also go this in the mail before I left from my sweet cousin and her new business.  Like her page on Facebook!  She is making some fun stuff, and this serves as a subtle anniversary reminder...

In Chicago, I went to an Immaculate Heart of Mary homeschooling conference.  I picked up some great materials and now just have to decide what we might want to try.  It can be a bit overwhelming, but we've got a couple of years to make decisions.

To top it off, I spent an amazing four days with my sister, her friends, and her boyfriend.  Life is just better with her in it, and I couldn't have asked for a better time.

I also met Carter's future wife, Anne...

who was tired of me snapping pictures.

This is just around the corner from RoRo's townhouse...

And aren't these two the cutest?

The rest of the time, I was too busy enjoying precious moments to snap pics.  What a fun little trip!


  1. The world is better with RoRo in it for sure! And I love the pictures of the sweet couple. :)


  2. RoRo looks soooooo happy. I <3 this post and you sweet girls.

    Carter's future wife is quite the looker as well. Adorbs!!


  3. Please tell me you ate some good chicago-style pizza! I miss my Lou Malnati's soooo much!
