Brunchin' with Bloggers

Last Sunday started out like most of my Sundays (and all days really). I awoke at 6:00 a.m. to adorable little faces demanding breakfast and Calliou. I fed my kids croissants and bacon (it was Sunday, after all). I did two loads of laundry, made three beds, dressed four bodies, and then we went for a walk to the park.

Then things got interesting. Around 10:45 I hopped into a cab and headed down to Michigan Avenue for a moms-only event hosted by the lovely and gracious Cindy Fey and Kim Moldofsky, two fellow bloggers from the Chicago Moms Blog.

While taking in a lake view from the 26th floor or a beautiful building, we sipped mimosas and nibbled on really delicious food. Pastoral provided amazing sandwiches and artisan cheeses (were I not trying to impress people, I wold have stood by the cheese tray the entire time). Jane Addam's Hull House was kind enough to provide pickled and preserved items from their kitchen. And then cheesecake from Eli's on top of it all.

We talked blogs, kids, and new opportunities. A few brave ladies read their work for the group.

The whole thing was utterly delightful. I can't wait to do it again.

It was utterly delightful! It was great to see you and everyone! We need to do it more often. :)

It was wonderful, wasn't it? The food was great and the view was stunning, but it was the company that really made the day.

It was great catching up; I look forward to our next gathering.
