    Lovely: A Bakeshop & Venue

    Lovely Bakeshop

    Since 2007, Lovely has been a beloved bakery & café in Chicago.

    Lovely’s owners & operators, Bob & Gina Hartwig, were the first bride & groom to be married at Lovely in 2008, thus establishing Lovely as a unique wedding venue in Chicago. Hosting weddings was an exciting addition to Lovely’s repertoire. Lovely provides wedding planning, savory & sweet catering, vintage serviceware, décor, & the loveliest service staff you’ll find.

    In 2012, Lovely’s sister store, Lovely, Too, opened. Lovely, Too has become a destination cake boutique for brides all over Chicagoland. If you can dream it, we can bake it!

    •  Instead of doing some Christmas decorating like I had planned I'm spending my weekend sick with a sick babe. So instead I'm living vicariously through everyone's Christmasy instagrams - love these paint chip gift tags by @domestikateblog - so simple and cute and basically free. You know I love me a reason to swipe paint chip swatches (or to use the 500 I already swiped for just such an occasion!) I think I'll make these to go on Charlie's teachers' gifts this year.
       Calvin and I caught the cold going around our house and poor buddy is not feeling good. It's been one thing after another lately and just when I feel like I can't handle another thing, Calvin wakes up after only 20 minutes of sleeping in the stroller. And then he gives me a look that reminds me that it's all worth it, it's all temporary, and to just try to smiling through it like he is. Just keep smiling. And sucking out snot with the Nose Frieda.
