Links I Love Week 31

The weather in Chicago was perfect this weekend. We hit the farmers market and then the antique market downtown and ran a few errands in the city. We are working on updating our space at home and ordered these swivel chairs in silver fox and a second navy couch to match in the front room. We also stopped by Farrow and Boll to look at a paint color I have been eyeing to update the bedroom. Grab your coffee and croissant and join me for this week’s links I love.

  1. Watching Bear with my husband, also a grad of The Culinary Institute of America, was a satisfying experience. Too many films and programs gloss over the rigors of kitchen life. A chef’s life is hard: hot, long hours, messy with lots of cleaning in between. Juggling food costs and staffing is a reality that viewers are not often exposed to. We loved this show- it is a real as
    kitchen life gets.
