Learn To Swim – There is still time!

IMG_0896

Get your kids swimming and learn safety around the pool before the summer is in full swing.

The Lakeview YMCA has room in their learn to swim intensive program that starts next week (June 18th).  This is a 2 week program that is every day (except Fridays).  I think this is much more useful than the once a week option.

Pool safety and a strong swimmer is so important for kids and in life.  I’ll be there and hope to see you there!  Sign up today – here’s the link: https://www.ymcachicago.org/lakeview/programs/school-age-swim-lessons

(Yes, they may make your long haired child wear a swim cap LOL)

Update your ‘framers’ with a Sesh from Little Cacti in the City

It’s been a long hiatus, but after having our third child, Ethan, I’m back to it! First up to discuss, a fantastic photographer on the scene that you definitely need to take notice.

Our client and great friend, Daisy Knox, is a fantastic natural light photographer.  We just had a great photo session with her a few weeks ago and she just ‘gets it’.  Daisy has 4 kids of her own and understands what it takes to get incredible family photos in a short period of time.  Kids can expire quickly during photoshoots, and Daisy totally knows how to get kids to cooperate and look amazing in front of the camera quickly.  I heard her repeatedly say ‘I got the shot’ after maybe 3 clicks of her camera.  I was completely skeptical and thought, ‘how can our family of 5.5 all look great that fast’?!?  Well she did, over and over again, so just see for yourself in her blog post below.  I am in absolutely love with these photos and I’m looking forward to updating my ‘framers’ around my house with these stunners.  Thank you Little Cacti in the City and Daisy Knox.

Families are all after her services so grab a spot today and get 15% off your full sesh (not applicable for a mini-session).

Enjoy Chicago,

Groundhog Day 2016 Predicts Early Spring!

The infamous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, didn’t see his shadow today and has forecasted that we will have an Early Spring this year!   The real estate market has kicked off to a very busy start; and considering Easter is very early this year this could be a very welcoming prediction!  I think he may be right this year…

Happy Halloween 2015!!

Halloween

It’s going to be a fun and busy weekend in the City!  Chicago doesn’t have set hours for trick or treating, but if you go to your wards website, they will have hours posted for Halloween events for both commercial and residential.  Many businesses participate in the fun and will host trick or treating during set hours too.  Check it out and have fun!

Enjoy Chicago,

Chicago’s Plastic Bag Ban

In case you haven’t heard yet, the plastic bag ban goes into effect this Saturday.  This will only effect stores with at least 10,000 square feet…so if your faves are Target and Jewel, they will be effected.  I don’t know about you, but I never liked the thousand of plastic bags I would get from shopping at Jewel, so I would often ask for a paper bag (sans handles) just so I would leave with less bulk.  We have enough to carry with all our kids gear, so I certainly welcome this change.

If you are like me, I love to purchase reusable bags, but I always leave them in the house or even in the car!  We will all have to make a conscious effort to remember to bring our reusable bags into the store, or be forced to purchase a new one at the checkout counter.

Now, if ‘they’ could only invent a biodegradable disposable diaper…
