On My Radar.

We’re headed back to Chicago today for the weekend to officially kick off wedding planning with engagement celebrations with family and friends and even some dress shopping (eeek!). It’s always so great to be back in town and while we’ve got a jam packed few days, we’re ready to soak in the last little bit of summer in the Windy City since we likely won’t be back again until the holidays.

Before evert flight I always round up and save a few articles I’ve been meaning to read to make the most of the distraction free moments before in-flight wifi kicks in – a few things that have caught my attention and are on my radar:
