It’s been a while since I made anything from scratch (like these homemade protein balls). However, now that the weather is slowly cooling off and I don’t mind having the oven on, maybe I’ll whip up a few treats... any taste testers available?

Chicago’s beautiful skyline - A phoenix from the ashes
The Great Chicago Fire began on the night of October 8, 1871 and burned wildly throughout the following day, finally coming under control on October 10. Legend holds that the blaze started when Catherine O’Leary’s cow knocked over a lighted lantern. The fire leapt the south branch of the Chicago River and destroyed much of central Chicago, and then leapt the main branch of the river consuming the near north side leaving an area of about four miles long and almost a mile wide in ruins. More than 17,000 structures were destroyed, an estimated 300 people dead and 100,000 (1 in 3 residents) homeless. Reconstruction efforts began quickly and architects from around the world helped lay the foundation for a modern city featuring the world’s first skyscrapers. Today, the Chicago Fire Department training academy is located on the site of the O’Leary property where the Great Chicago Fire started. #chicago #chicagolife #chicagonights #chicagostyle #chicagoart #chicagophotos #chicagopictures #instachicago #chicagophotography #chicagostreets #chicagomoments #chicagoweekend #chicagovacations #chicagodays #chicagoskyline #greatchicagofire #chicagofire #chicagoarchitect #illinois #travelgram #photooftheday #changingphotography #lumix #lumixgx8, #picoftheday #cloudgate #thebean #windycity

Noon Whistle Brewing

This week we released the final segment of the Drunk and Uncultured Summer Drinking Series! We took a trip out to Noon Whistle Brewing in Lombard and it was a TREAT. Getting out to their taproom was something we were really looking forward to when we planned this series

We had always known Noon Whistle for their deliciously juicy IPAs and and funky yet accessible sour beers, so we really enjoyed seeing all that they had to offer! Go listen to our newest episode to hear everything we thought about Noon Whistle!

Chicago, Illinois

the end of summer officially marks four years that i’ve been in chicago. when i moved here as a college dropout at 19, broke and inspired, i didn’t know a single soul from chicago. i had no perception of distance, of which neighborhoods were which, of what to do with my time as a disconnected minor in a big city. i left my home state abruptly and without much ado, and ended up here without a plan or roadmap.
in the time since, i’ve experienced profound joy, including but not limited to - my first salaried positions, seeing @hamiltonmusical TWICE, falling in love, chicago music festivals, 4am bars, red hot ranch at 1 am, getting kicked out of @theowlchicago , turning 20, then 21, then 22, then 23.... and profound loss - the dissolution of a 2+ year romance, countless other heartbreaks, getting kicked out of @theowlchicago again (lol), several friends passing away, multiple hospital stays.

i’ve grown and matured more than i thought possible. i’m fully independent, building a business i once dreamed of having, and at some times, it finally feels like i can breathe.

but i still battle with remaining grateful for all of it: every laugh, every smile, every sentence spoken through clenched teeth or midnight breakdown. it’s no secret that i struggle with major depression and anxiety, and i never wanted to give off the pretense that any of this was easy, or that i did it all on my own. the resolve has come from my community, and i’m so grateful for all of you. i’ve also learned that blink-182 was right, and nobody really likes you when you’re 23, including yourself ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but i’m starting to see what part of my life this city falls into and the value it’s brought to my life, and i know that moving here here was the best decision i’ve ever made (so far). thank you all for being part of it, good or bad.
