So I was in LA on Monday, enjoying life. That is until I had to fly back to Chicago that night. I went from a blissful 80 degrees to -12 degrees (which was supposedly -52 with the wind chill). Don’t pull out a calculator, your math is right. That’s a 92 degree difference in just a 4 hour flight. It’s amazing what that will do to one’s mood. Needless to say, I still ventured outside, 8 layers deep in clothing, […]
Last week, I spent time in Minneapolis for work. Oh my goodness, it was cold! It got down to -9 degrees. I took off my jacket off for the first few pictures above and almost died. Although the temperatures were harrowing, the city was still quite lovely. I felt as though I was returning to a tropical paradise when I got back to Chicago, and that’s never a good sign. So excited to be headed to Texas soon. Then I’ll really […]

I spent Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh this year. It was chilly and snowy… and I even salted a driveway for the first time in my life. Everyone thought it was funny that I was so enthusiastic about it. I also went to a really great Penguins game on the 27th. (Geno and Sid loved my sneaker wedges as you can see.) What a great way to spend Thanksgiving Eve! Now onwards we march towards Christmas!

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 […]
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!
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.
