I'm aways adding to my book list. Send me a text to say HI and tell me the next title I need to read.

I don’t know if I could ever live in a small town. I need the constant variety that the city provides. But more often than not I don’t take advantage of it! We love our half-square-mile radius and almost everything we need is included (yes, even a Target).

My sister-in-law is great about knowing what restaurants opened and she tells us about them often. And on date night we will explore them. On a day-to-day basis we stick to our neighborhood of Roscoe Village.

Most people might not venture this far north or this far west when they’re visiting Chicago. It’s too bad that they miss out on our super fun community but I’m also OK with it! I love getting to know our local business owners and when you support local businesses you’re boosting your neighborhood and I’ve always believed that a rising tide lifts all boats.

so hot right now

I'm Erin, how haven't we met yet?

People often tell me I look like someone they know but they can't place it. Was I everyone's BFF in a past life? Is it that I'm an Aquarius and I go with the flow? Is it the goat?

Let's figure it out

hey there!
