Summer Inspiration

I can’t wait for this weekend – it’s Memorial Day which is, in Chicago, the “official” start of summer! It marks my 8 year anniversary of moving to this wonderful city, the Blackhawks are in the Stanley Cup, the sun is shining, and Berry Chill yogurt is on the agenda for the day. And on top of that, starting next week there is all sorts of Inspired Creations Contest goodness coming your way, so June is sure to be a FABULOUS month. Because I’m in a carefree mood, I thought I’d share some summer inspiration with you, hopefully it kicks off your weekend right!
