A very happy Fourth of July from the Jersey Shore! We pulled into Ocean City late last evening, and had such a fun night. Mac & Manco’s Pizza, wine, and great company: my parents, their friends and my brother. Probably should have gone to bed before 4 a.m., but you win some, you lose some, haha.

really like working from home. The one thing that prevents me from absolutely loving it, though, is my actual home. (Fail.) While my office space is cute (so thankful!), we just don’t get a ton of natural light in any of the rooms… and things seem to look kind of dingy because of it.

But isn’t Blair’s new place gorgeous? She has such amazing design skills and taste, and I can’t get over the natural light–and views–her apartment offers. It’s, without a doubt, my favorite place to work! (Also because of the great company and the fact that we have fancy drinks while we work, haha.)

First, a very happy birthday to my amazing mother! Mom, I can’t wait to celebrate with you tomorrow. I love you so much, and I couldn’t imagine life without you. :) Let’s get our Lilly on this weekend, okay? (#twinning)

About Photos-15
After months of trying to learn the ins and outs of WordPress and some very basic coding (if you can even call it that), I finally did it: I redesigned Kelly in the City… on my own! (Also, it’s 5 a.m. as I’m writing this post, and I’ve been working on launching the site since midnight. Took a wee bit longer than I thought it would. And I just broke my mobile theme, haha.)

Barbecue season has finally arrived in Chicago, and I couldn’t be happier. There’s just nothing like catching up with friends over backyard grills and fire pits, surrounded by city buildings.



Man. Major WordPress issues on the the blog front lately. I seriously need to start writing my posts in Microsoft Word. (Come on, Kelly! Remember this.) There’s just nothing worse than working on a post for an hour, and then losing everything! Ugh.

Okay. So sorry for the complaining. Not that big of a deal. Let’s just start over… ;)
