For a long time, Mox and Socks has been a pretty solitary space. While it’s nice to communicate with other bloggers through emails and comments, most of the work that goes on ’round these parts can be a little lonely.
Not this week, though! This past Sunday, I got to meet, hang out, and take pictures with none other than the incredible Emily Hallock of Thoroughly Modern Emily! I’ve been following Emily’s blog for quite some time now, and I just adore her unparalleled collection of retro dresses. And her voice really comes through in her posts–her wit, her excitement, her clever observations–it always draws me in.
Since we both live in/near Chicago, we thought we’d meet up and take some fun autumn pictures. We drove out to one of my favorite settings, Mayslake Peabody Estate, and set up shop in the tree-lined path behind the Tudor-style mansion.
Spending the afternoon with Emily was so much fun! We laughed at the silly poses we struck for our pictures, grumbled about politics, and juggled pumpkins. And for once I wasn’t that weirdo taking pictures of herself, by herself!
One day soon, I hope we get together for another photo sesh. And if you’re a Chicago blogger who wants to collaborate, shoot me an email!
