Hello and thanks for visiting! My name is Leyla and this blog is about my family’s adventures in Chicago and sometimes elsewhere.
I met my husband,Charlie, in 2007 on a blind date. We fell in love and got married in May 2011 and in March 2012 (yes, 10 months after we got married), we welcomed sweet baby Luke to the world! I am loving my roles and titles as a “mama” and wife. I never knew I had so much love to give!!!
I started this blog in March 2013 to document our family adventures and to offer some parenting tips. I soon realized that I’m not giving advice. So I decided to focus the blog on eating out with/out a baby and found that it was hard to take pretty pictures of food with a growing, fussy, and very mobile baby. So I scrapped that idea, too. I’m still trying to figure out the direction of the blog . But for now…
This blog is about us – What we do – Where we go – What we find. All through the lens.
Thanks for stopping by! ~ Leyla
