This year seems to be flying by and I can't believe it is already Summer! For those who are new around here, I have a few Summer shows that I participate in that are in Chicago.
My favorite one is Wells Street and it kicks off the Summer on June 10 - 11. This festival is very close to where I live and I walk Wells Street just about every day. I love being able to support my local community and meet my neighbors.
Quickly after Wells Street I will head to NYC for the Ladurée event with Kristen Beddard, Amy Thomas, Angie Niles, and Ann Mah. If you haven't signed up please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can put your name on the list.
After NYC I head home for about a week and then I am headed for a family vacation to Portugal. There will be 8 of us total including two little kids. This is very different from my solo travel days so there will be a lot of patience involved but also a lot of fun. My niece is almost 4 and she is at such a great age to explore. My brother in law and I have been doing a lot of research and planning but if you have tips on Porto or Libson please send them my way.
After Portugal, I will be back in Chicago to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the blog!
I have two other festivals in the Summer. The Southport Art Festival on July 15-16 and The Artfest on Michigan Ave on July 21 -23. As of now, I have no travel plans for August but you never know!
I will be back in Paris in September to shoot a special project.
I would love to meet you all who are traveling to or live in Chicago. Don't be a stranger. Stop by and say hello!
