After several people showed interest in Millie (who we were fostering through One Tail at a Time), I found that instead of being happy to see her find a new home, I was feeling seriously bummed that she would be leaving. And I think Josh felt the same way.
Our biggest concern though was making sure Chick would be okay with having a another pup around. She has always been a loner and never shows too much interest in other dogs. After Millie was spayed we saw the tension between the two dissipate and while they aren’t playmates, they are respectful of each other (save for when Millie interrupts Chick on “her” pillow on the couch. We all have our limits).
While it has been a little more work adjusting to walking two pups and getting them out the door (oh how I long for a house with a door to the backyard), it’s also been a lot of fun having two:)

Last weekend Josh and I trekked up to the North Woods of Wisconsin for a college friend’s wedding. Nestled in a town called Trego (population < 1,000), we stayed at the Heartwood Conference Center and Resort. The 6.5 hour drive was long–so long–but it was fun to see a part of Wisconsin that neither of us were familiar with. The wedding was gorgeous and it was so sweet to see a friend so happy.
Coming back to Chicago though, was pretty dang nice too. While at times this city can get a bad rap, I love it and am grateful to be exposed to such diverse neighborhoods and culture every single day.

Last week I posted an old photo of my gram, and this week I have another. This time with my grandpa on their wedding day. I can’t help but think how rad it would have been there on that day (the fact that I didn’t yet exist notwithstanding).
One of my most favorite photos. Ever. My grandma lounging at the pool. Black and white photos just make everything look so much more glamorous.
Saturday night sure was heartbreaking for Wisconsin fans. I don’t always get into sports, but watching the men’s basketball team work so hard the entire game only to lose in the last few seconds was pretty brutal. I think someone else may taken the loss a bit harder:)
