2 Years & 1 Dog Later...

Well hive, it is time to say goodbye (tear!).  It has been 2 years since these pictures were taken on a perfect day in Montego Bay.

Mr. Quiche and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary yesterday.  It started out like any normal day and was capped off with a lovely dinner at Paris Club, a relatively new spot on the Chicago dining scene.  We over-indulged & I have to say that the Creme Brulee & Pistachio Pot de Creme were totally worth it - yum!

It has been 2 1/2 years since I joined the insanely awesome Weddingbee Community.  In that time, I've gotten to know so many of you, just as you've gotten to know Mr. Quiche and I (well, if you were reading the Bee way back when!).  I haven't posted in awhile, so Hello! to some of the new readers out there.  We've had a busy couple of years, complete with wonderful vacations, a new dog, new friends & a new business!

Hive, meet Derby.  We rescued Derby almost 1 year ago today & I have to say it has been a pretty great year with her in our family.  I am not ashamed to say that I am obsessed with this dog & cannot imagine our life without her!  I found her through a great local Chicago rescue called Puppy Love Love Cats Pet Rescue.  

Words cannot explain how much Weddingbee has meant to me.  I have met the most amazing group of women, many of whom I am proud to call my great friends.  Here is a little collage of life with some of these wonderful people.  I know I will be friends with them for the long haul.

Anyone want to play Spot-A-Bee?

& finally, a new business!  Last year I took a leap of faith and decided to start my own interior design business, Bien Living Design.  Starting a business can be pretty scary, but I have to say it was absolutely the right decision for me at this point in my life.  I keep busy with a number of local Chicago clients, but I also have a service directed towards young people & couples (wink, wink, nudge, nudge!) buying or moving into their first place - Long Distance Design.  In short, it is Online Room Design and is a great way to work with an interior designer without breaking the bank.  

So, feel free to follow along as I blog (& tweet @bienliving) about life, fashion & interior design.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Hive- thank you, thank you, thank you for making these past 2 1/2 years so memorable for me.  I'll see you all on the boards :) Cheers!
