hello, world. my name is ilene (aka illy). this is my blog where i like to write about life, laughter and the pursuit of real happiness. creamer with a pinch of coffee, songs played on repeat, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, and reading into the hours of the night top my list of favorite things. and life. i am a follower of Jesus and i love life.
i love this window display at the french connection in the water tower place. it makes me smile every time i walk past it, so i finally stopped one day to take a pic of it. the contrast is genius. lovelovelove it.
