What was intended to be a cross-country ski trip turned into a snowshoeing experience.
Turns out, when you’re as clumsy as I am, wearing shoes that make your feet bigger isn’t a good game plan.
It was a fun trip full of wine, pie, and snow. When winter feels like it just won’t go away, you might as well embrace it.
Meet Liz and her very minty Nikes.
Nothing like a little festive cheer with a bit of minty goodness on your feet! Am I right?!
We went to a German Christmas Market downtown and filled ourselves with warm cider and cinnamon nuts.
I love Chicago at Christmas time and I want the pre-holiday excitement to last forever!
It feels so right walking down a crowded city sidewalk, seeing your breath dance before you,
with your pockets jammed so far in your coat pockets you’re convinced you’ll find an old hand warmer still giving off a little heat.

So I think we all fight a little bit of boredom during our workouts. Am I right?
It’s nice to have something to keep your mind focused on while you do your thing.
Music only keeps my mind occupied for fifteen minutes or so before I start getting bored.
And then I found the TED app on my phone. If you don’t know what TED is, check it out!
It’s an online collection of some of the most interesting seminars you’ve ever heard.
Now when I rollerblade I get to learn! (I don’t think I’ve ever sounded like a bigger nerd before in my life.)
That’s right. I rollerblade and I love adding new wrinkles to my brain.
Feel free to laugh at me because I would probably laugh at me if I weren’t me. (That was sorta confusing / dumb to say.)
Anyways. I love to keep warm with my Nike and Carhartt gear.
Like your mom told you: layer, layer, layer! and add argyle socks when you can.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Okay. It’s just sorta cold outside, but that means it’s time to pull out your down vests and festive warm clothes.
I made a giant pom pom to top one of my Carhartt hats. See how I did it HERE.
Check out the new pair of Air Max sneakers I got this weekend.
Stay warm out there, folks!
Don’t worry- I’m still the biggest summer-lover around.
I was just going through my parents’ coat closet and thought it’d be fun to play dress up.
Geesh. How old am I again?
The bird who wanted summer to come and the rain and snow to leave.
(and hopefully summer would bring the 2011 Liberty Nikes print along for the season)
I used ink on illustration board for this.
