Okay you guys. This is one of those giant posts. I just returned to Chicago after spending a week with my family in Arkansas. Not only did I get to see my mom and dad but my Aunt Laurie, Uncle Jimmy, and their two sons Nat and Sam came too!

It was a lovely week – we spent time hiking, walking around downtown Fayetteville, and doing a lot of back porch sitting. So, enjoy these images of one of my favorite places in the world!

Happy Monday too!
