I don’t know how some people DO IT, Y’ALL. I mean, how do you work all night in a demanding medical scene, nap for an hour, and still somehow find the strength to make a few Dark and Stormies at 11 am in your gorgeous Pilsen kitchen?! Sonia and Chris, two Seattle babies who found their way to, and are feeling at home in Chicago, aren’t just cute, they’re smart as hell and apparently can live on no sleep. Every time I take a nap I think, “wow, I bet Sonia and Chris have never experienced this before.”

By the end of this shoot in freezing Chicago, we were drawing up the paperwork to have these two adopt us. I’m gonna make a paper chain countdown til their wedding this summer because mama can’t wait.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
