"The Forgotten Frontier" by Andrew C. Hess. It was a really interesting and enjoyable and frustrating and rewarding and super exciting process and I'm really happy with the way it turned out! And the first book with my name on the back!

P.S. Isn't Christa so encouraging? I'm saving this picture for "one of those days" - you know what I mean?

Two photos to share. ABOVE: Marissa came to visit me and we spent a full day walking/shopping/eating/talking and it was glorious. BELOW: We celebrated Ashley's 24th at a swanky gastropub. Good times!
Happy Friday! Chilifest today at work!
P.S. It's 31 degrees outside!

Axis Maps. They make so much sense in that the street names are easy to read and the important things are easy to locate. How many times have you lost your place as you tried to figure out the name of the street you're looking at? Happens all the time to me. You can purchase prints of these posters for Chicago and Boston (NYC, SF, and DC are in the works.)

The picture above is from Kate's birthday celebration last weekend. :)

Let's face it, 'autumnal' is just really fun to say. Last weekend on the day of Kate's birth (!!) we went apple picking waaay out in almost-Wisconsin. It was gorgeous (we missed the nasty rain in Chicago), cold, and delightfully autumnal. (Say it with me, "autumnal, autumnal, autumnal.") Edwards Orchards is a family owned place with amazing donuts that are the closest thing to malasadas I've tasted on the mainland. Perhaps they have some Portuguese in their background?
