This is gonna be a long one...

Lots of great things have happened in the last few days!
So here it goes:

Renegade Chicago was a blast! As usual it was a wonderful weekend filled with beautiful weather, friendly faces, awesome customers, good friends and fun, fun, fun! This has to be one of my favorite shows and it sort of marks the changing of the seasons here in the city (for me at least). It was such a busy weekend that I wasn't able to walk around at all to see any of the other artists or take many photos but I was able to snap a few quick shots.

Thank you to everyone who came out to see me at the show! I couldn't be doing what I'm doing without all of the love, support, kind words and encouragement from my wonderful customers, friends and family!

After a big show I normally take a few days off to recoup from the long days and the even longer days of prep work right before the show.

It worked out perfectly since Eric had Monday off as well! So we made our way downtown and leisurely strolled around with no plans snapping photos all day long (digital and polaroid), shopped a little and enjoyed a nice dinner at the HopLeaf.

Today was lovely and relaxed with a little sleeping in and lounging around. Eric and I ventured out into our neighborhood with the dogs and had some more fun with the polaroid camera.

That's all for this evening. I'll be back tomorrow with a few more photos of the weekend.
Good night and sleep tight.
