nataliepavela Happy birthday to my sister and business partner @andreapavela. Nobody I'd rather practice yoga all around the city with than you. Photo by @johnphilp3 from @yogapluschi x @punchhousechicago last August. If only we could practice in restored concert halls every day...that @thaliahallchicago is a magical place. 3d

nataliepavela Our little Colter man is nearly 8 months old. Looking back at this photo from when he was only 2 months...boy, does time fly. Can't wait to love on my two nephews in Knoxville next month (cc: @dcoe @jennyc319 @andreapavela) 4d

nataliepavela Look mom! I now know how to decorate a cake - dots, beads, stars, shells, and rosettes galore. Thank you @clarestudwell and @wiltoncakes for hosting us this evening.
And friends, this double-layer 8" cake won't eat itself, so come on over for a slice in the next few days...if the cats don't find it first

nataliepavela I picked a good day to work from home. The friendly team behind @thankyoutakeout opened their doors this afternoon, conveniently located four blocks away. I ordered the Mongolian Beef to go, which was devoured within minutes upon arriving at home...with a clever fortune to boot! Also snagged a peeked inside @lostlaketiki next door and she's a beaut. Looking forward to getting my tiki on in the near future. Who wants to join me? 2w

nataliepavela @androops knows how to entertain on game day. Delicious spread from @publicanquality and Bloody Mary's made with a special edition of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire he brought back from England. And a big Sunday supper is in the works. I think I might just stay here all day. 3w

nataliepavela This holiday I gifted plants. I'm a firm believer that everyone can use more greenery in their life. These cute little ceramic pots came from @anthropologie and I hit up my local florist for a selection of succulents. 3w

nataliepavela Can't wait for our second @yogapluschi workshop with @owenalchemy tonight! During this recent cold spell, there's nothing I'd rather do on a Saturday evening then gather with a small group of awesome ladies for candlelit yoga, herbal medicine consultations, and juice tasting. #yogaplusOandA #saturdaynightdetox #herbalmedicine #yogapluschicago 3w

nataliepavela Part 2 of our #24hoursinmilwaukee (a day late): breakfast in bed, a freezing cold walk to the art museum, only to learn that 99% of the museum is currently 'off-viewing'. Still worth it to see the architecture up close. A stroll through the Public Market, a driving tour of the Third Ward + antiquing (check out @chazfortune's page for his glassware win) + lunch at Bavette La Boucherie. A Lakefront Brewery tour + tasting and burgers before we hopped on the road back to Chicago. So many things we didn't get to do...we'll be back soon Milwaukee! 3w

nataliepavela Thank you @sanfordmke1. The 'chef's choice' tasting menu was worth every penny...and definitely worthy of 3+ hours of our #24hoursinmilwaukee #SanfordRestaurant 3w

nataliepavela Tomorrow @chazfortune and I leave for a quick 24 hour overnight trip to Milwaukee. We've already got some must-dos on the agenda, including dinner at Sanford, late night live jazz listening, breakfast at Blue's Egg, a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and a @LakefrontBrewery tour. Any MKE favorites that we shouldn't miss? Do tell! // pictured: good coffee shop vibes at @colectivocoffee on Prospect Ave. during my last drive through Milwaukee in July. #24hoursinmilwaukee #colectivocoffee #exploremke #vsco #vscocam #roadtrip 4w

nataliepavela @andreapavela, @akalyna and Scott : nobody I'd rather be ringing in the new year with. A champagne tasting and lots of groovy tunes. We'll be dancing the rest of the night...Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2015! 4w

nataliepavela It's been so fun holidaying with my man this season. I loved having him around for all the family festivities last week. He helped us make homemade raviolis for our first course of Christmas Eve dinner and made homemade eggnog ice cream to finish of the night. In the words of my Nana: Charlie is definitely invited back next year. 1mon

nataliepavela Raided the @southsocialandhome prop closet, grabbing all the brass candlestick holders. Paired with a visit to the florist for loads of fresh winter greens made for a pretty lovely Christmas Eve dinner tablescape if I do say so myself. We fit the whole crew (23 in total) around the giant combined table. I love that we're able to get all the adults and children in one place. The best stories are told around the dinner table. 1mon
