Happy Sunday! While you are reading this, I am currently wrapping up my last day at One of a Kind Chicago. If you are curious about the show, I created a video with the help of Kindred Content that you can see here. It was a lot of fun and I was in front of the camera for more than I have ever been before. The hardest line was getting my name straight.
There were a lot of questions about the sweater I wore for the video. I am in love with this color and I will be wearing this sweater on repeat.

I loved this Jennifer Aniston article from Glamour Magazine
Aniston added, “We live in a society that messages women: By this age, you should be married; by this age, you should have children. That’s a fairy tale. That’s the mold we’re slowly trying to break out of.”
A shout out to reader Nikki who surprised me yesterday at The One of A Kind Show with a box of macarons and a handwritten note. Thank you!! I am finishing work this morning while drinking coffee out of my Bonjour mug and eating macarons.
I loved meeting so many readers over the last few days at the show. There are so many Chicago readers that I really have to organize a meetup in early 2019.
Today is my last day at One of A Kind and my last year. I have plans to do something different next December. You will have to stay tuned for next year. But it has been on my bucket list for years!
