Jori Frances Smith  Chicago | I am a lover of life and laughter. My soul seeks to explore, dream and discover | #WillowChristineAdventures ๐Ÿ’œ| #LetsSmithTogether | Film โฌ‡๏ธ

Summer nights. Goodbye drinks. I said good bye to an old colleague tonight with Willow. Itโ€™s incredible to look back because it feels like yesterday when I first started with that group. Itโ€™s hard to believe it has been nearly 9 years. Iโ€™m rarely in the Chicago office these days so it was nice to see familiar and friendly faces. Cheers to new chapters. Itโ€™s definitely bittersweet.

Tom and I enjoy taking the dogs down to the river so today we took Willow to enjoy a duck watch and kayakers during our morning walk. It was a peaceful Sunday morning. We asked the duck a very important question. Check out her response! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿก๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿฑ #willowchristineadventures

My heart is so incredibly happy for Juline and Aaron. An engagement arose from what Juline initially thought was a surprise birthday party on Sunday and it was wonderful! Happy Engagement and Birthday Week to my sister @jujuonthatbeat________ who is a wonderful gem of a human being that I love so much! And cheers to my new brother Aaron. Way to pull off an incredible surprise! We celebrated with dinner last night as well. It has been a busy but fun week! Cheers to love. ๐Ÿ’œ Here are a few of my fav shots from Sunday. Too bad IG only allows 10! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜

We love celebrating love! Yesterday was absolutely beautiful. Iโ€™m going to gush about how we spent our Sunday tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ #letssmithtogether

My heart is full of love as I look back to the memories of this beautiful day as we celebrated our love with friends, family and the support of loved ones. Our ceremony and especially our vows were incredibly special to us. I am so grateful to be able to look back at these moments. It's surreal to think about how much we have packed in within the past two years as we continue to grow our lives together.
Our love is our greatest adventure. Tom and I have been able to take our love to new countries and cities within the past two years and we are now able to bring along our beautiful gift, Willow. She has joined us to some of our favorite spots and she has witnessed multiple sunrises and sunsets as we continue to create memories and new experiences together. I still believe the best is yet to come. I am so grateful to have Tom by my side on this journey through life. Thank you for always being by my side through every challenge we have encountered and every moment we have laughed together. I love you so much. You are a wonderful partner and an incredible father. Cheers to us.
Tom, I still choose you. Every year, every month, every waking and sleeping hour, I choose you. And Iโ€™m picturing us beside more mountains and night skies, more sunsets and sunrises, new cities and endless stretches of land as infinite as this bond that will hold strong as we find new ways to selflessly adore, support and challenge one another throughout each new adventure. And it will be us. And always us. #letssmithtogether

Willow was ready to rock and wheel into the Berteau block party today from Warner. We had fun and it was so great to meet some wonderful new neighbors as well! #willowchristineadventures

You canโ€™t win them all. โ€˜Twas a beautiful night at the friendly confines tonight. ๐Ÿ’œ The first run was fun. Too bad they lost!

Willow will crawl for food. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’œ Itโ€™s official!! Our baby girl is on the move! Sheโ€™s also an official yogi baby with her planks and downward dog. #willowchristineadventures

Climbing Wall - Maggie Daley Park | Saturday morning fun with Christina! ๐Ÿ’œ Tom and Willow came to cheer us on! We saw a bunch of adorable kids climb the wall as well. I canโ€™t wait to take Willow in a few years!

Willow had another exciting weekend! On Saturday she had the chance to meet her cousin @henryearldemos and other fun cousins while hanging out with family and some new friends! Henry and his parents (Kelly and Telis) were in town visiting from Brooklyn so Aunt Vickie hosted a Hello Henry party! Willow decided to entertain Henryโ€™s guests by playing the piano. Doesnโ€™t it sound like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star? She enjoyed the party because she passed out like a champion on Dad after the fun was over. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’œ It was so good to see everyone! Tom and Telis are four months apart and Henry and Willow were born 4 days apart from each other. ๐Ÿ’œ@vickie_demos @lex_doloughty @henryearldemos @telisdemos @christine_smith_11 @pdoloughty @ktrader #willowchristineadventures

Iโ€™m so proud of my little fishy. She definitely cried halfway through her first class but she did so well! We are excited for her weekly classes to start on August 4th! #willowchristineadventures

#tbt to Lake Superior sunsets and sunrises with my loves. ๐Ÿ’œ #willowchristineadventures #letssmithtogether
