Here are a few photos of our time off spending it with the family in Chicago.  It was a very calculated decision to take a breather mid-wedding season and it was WAY worth the piled up inbox I came back to.  I feel refreshed and ready to go with creativity restored. With my parents here from Alabama and my brother from California we had the best of time all together.  Our days involved lots of iced coffee, Chicago Botanic Gardens, cameras galore, Architectural Boat Tour, a day by Lake Michigan, fireworks from our rooftop and my Dad's birthday. And yes, you are about to see a birthday candle in a hamburger.  That's how we roll.

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday with the ones you love!

My brother turned the camera on Eric and I. I like this shot. It feels very us.
