New Comfy Converse Design

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a mom yet – but I’m pretty sure I already share many mom attributes. And having no patience or time for uncomfortable shoes is one of them, especially as I explore the city.

I have always been a huge fan of Converse shoes – and I mean huge. I even wore them on my wedding day, as did the rest of my wedding party and family members. But, being a self-diagnosed old lady in my 20s, they quickly became hard on my feet and knees. After a knee injury last year, I’ve pretty much retired my favorite pair.

Park Review: Maggie Daley

During our search for our new home, my husband and I are determined to see as many parks as we can in Chicago. And with there being over 580 public parks… well we have a long way to go. I plan on seeking out small neighborhood parks as well, but for my first review I thought I’d start with a major one.
