After an amazing but late night in Chicago with my friend Charlie (visiting all the way from Iowa with her bf Jacob), it was rise and shine by 7 am to meet my other friend named Charlie (whom I have known since before transitioning) to catch up over breakfast. I’m a little tired, but what a great start to the weekend!

Happy Pride Month! Last night Charlie and I explored the LGBT bars in Boystown. It was a very memorable night. We even found ourselves at one point in a basement vintage clothing shop that was open super late.

Up bright and early after about 4.5 hours of sleep!

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

Some selfies taken when I visited my parents earlier this week. #clarendonfilter (above pic)

I somehow matched my parent’s living room color scheme with my hair color and this top ; -)

My crazy work week seems to finally have come to an end and I may actually be able to enjoy the weekend without working on last minute software bugs – yay!! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Sunny Day and 80 degrees = Time for my favorite Sun Dress!

The weather today is amazing (compared to how not-so-great it has been). I threw on my favorite sun dress to enjoy the weather. My kids are with me, which is always a good thing. I was especially grateful though, because it was far more windy then I ever imagined. I had to constantly hold the material to my side so I would not flash anyone. They carried the the shopping bags for me and my daughter took care of the cart so I could hastily get back in the car 🙂

If you can’t tell from the pictures.. I feel down right amazing in this dress. I feel like it is because the colors seem to work well with my complexion, more so than almost anything else in my wardrobe. 

Having the windows open with the sun shining in also provides incredible light for a mini-selfie marathon. 

Well, I guess I better get back to doing my laundry (please ignore the towels on the bathroom floor and the clothes on the drying rack) 😉

Have a great weekend!

My goal in sharing my transition is to represent transgender people in the positive light that we all deserve. Re-blogs are always okay if they are for this purpose, but if you are a fetish blog or fetish website then I want nothing to do with you and you do not have my permission to use my images.
