hi guys- welcome to the cake chronicles!!!! these are just a few quick snap shots from my most recent weekend trip into chicago to visit valley; we were pretty lucky to have our older sister in town for a visit too! we had a great girls weekend filled with lots of giggles, shopping, and amazing food. i'm always sad when a fun weekend has to end BUT i always love coming home to my pup. how cute is this little note saying he behaved himself the entire weekend?!?!    


valley. volume one.

hi ladies and gents, it's me valley. in an effort to get to know a little more about cake & valley individually we're starting {cake's chronicles} & {valley's volume}.

chicago city flag.

chicago water.

picasso in chicago.

chicago tulips.

{valley's volume one} it's been a semi-glorious weather week in chicago and on my lunch breaks i've been able to take some-what leisurely strolls where i snapped these images with my phone. i hope you enjoy them as much as i do. chicago isn't always a warm and bright city...ehem, try being here in february, but when the flowers are in bloom you've got to stop and take a picture. chicago is not my hometown, but in the past three years it has become a beautiful city to me. enjoy your saturday wherever you are, i know i'm making the best of it.
