Friends! Has it really been over a month since my last post? I knew things were a little hectic with my job, in addition to spending lots of quality time with a toddler, but I didn’t think it was that long. I started to miss it. And when John shared this article from Crain’s Chicago Business featuring some Chicago bloggers, I knew I needed to get back on the horse. To ease back into this whole blogging thing, I thought I would share a little bit about what’s going on:
The end of winter/start of spring in Chicago has been a bit backwards. It was in the 60’s about two ago and I was able to wear my new floral dress from eShakti (currently out of stock). With flats! And bare legs! Then it snowed twice this week….really?!!
The weather hasn’t stopped Monica from wanted to spend an inordinate amount of time outside. 6:15am when it’s still dark and 30 degrees?? Girlfriend is going to try with all her might to go outside! And yes, there have been a few meltdowns when it’s time to go in for dinner or go to bed. Except for this random snow, the weather has been nice enough out spend countless hours outside, going down slides, and swinging. We even took a trip to the local ice cream shop for a milkshake :)
In addition to being outside, Monica is really enjoying reading lately. This includes us reading a dozen books to her before bed (with her occassionally “reading” along with us) or simply flipping through her favorite books on the couch. Sometimes we have to read her books twice in a row, and there are others that have to be read in a certain order.
Other current favorites include trips to the grocery store, playing with Play-Doh, and her play piano purchased for a song at a local rummage sale :)
Finally, here’s a quick update on becoming a registered investment advisor. We’re still working through the registration process, so I can’t do any marketing activity until that’s complete. On the positive side, I’ve finalized my logo and branding and it’s goooood!
In conjunction with launching, I’m starting to close down my Etsy shop. Operation: Move that Inventory is coming along, but I still have a ways to go. Anyone interested in fabric or possibly zippers?
I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!
