July is here and what an amazing first month of summer it has been!
Between Cubs games at Wrigley Field, vacations, and some BBQ action, we have to say we’re loving summer in the city!
Chicago has always been known for its beautiful summer days and nights, not only because of the weather but because the city just becomes alive. We all break out of our shell from the gloomy winter and become smiling faces making our way out to the local beaches and rooftop patios.
Sugar Fix Dental Loft has been a busy spot in Lakeview. In between our patient’s vacation schedules, they are loving their summer smiles when they head out of our doors. Dr. Jessica Emery has been busy creating some amazing Smiles Makeovers her at The Loft! Whether it

The Dental Diaries
Change is hard.
I couldn’t wait for 2017 to get here. I had a relatively newish team in January at work & was so excited to make 2017 our best year yet. I couldn’t wait to make changes to my diet & exercise habits in 2017. I also was excited to work more closely with Andrew on incorporating more “play” into our world.
And here I find myself on March 8, already onto the 3rd chapter in my 12 month 2017 book, and I’m realizing that things are STILL changing in my world.
My team is STILL changing. No matter the reason for the change, the consequence is the same. And that is- change is hard. As much as I want Sugar Fix to be for everyone, I do realize that this is an impossible goal. Whether someone leaves because I had to let them go or if they left on their own, it is still extremely personal for me. This is my business that I’ve grown from the ground-up. I didn’t purchase a practice with an already established patient list from anyone. I literally built Sugar Fix from absolutely nothing but passion, total attention to detail, and incredible amounts of hard work. I’ve earned the trust of incredible people to take care of their health and I’m so tremendously grateful for that. As necessary as it may be, a change in staffing is a hard pill to swallow.
My diet and exercise habits are still going strong. I incorporated exercise into my weekly agenda and those sessions are pretty much written in stone now. I am starting to see the changes that I had been wanting. More than anything, I am feeling stronger physically. Has it been easy getting out of bed at 5.20 in the morning? Heavens NO! Change is hard.
Lastly, on a VERY personal note…Andrew and I have been trying so hard to make sure we have more “play” in our world. That is with the kids as well as with each other. As a small business owner as well as as the parents of 3 children under the age of 10, sometimes things can get to feeling pretty stressful (to say the least!). We enrolled the kids in music lessons after school and they are having a ball at them! It’s a big treat to hear them during these lessons! We also enrolled Paige in gymnastics class- it is so much fun seeing her out there LOVING all that she’s doing! Andrew has been taking the kids skiing which is so fun for all of them. And on Sundays, Andrew & I have date night. For some reason…this is the only change that hasn’t felt hard at all. Our family is so precious to us and doing things together as a family and as a couple is so natural and right and good.
And with that…I’m out for now! See you next week,
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…these are a few of my favorite things. Isn’t that how the song goes? I REALLY have spring on my mind lately and I have to laugh as I write this because light snowflakes are falling.
Soon though, those snowflakes will be replaced with rain clouds and before we know it, tulips will be popping up through the dirt. I can hardly wait!!!
I’d love to fill you in a few of my favorite spring essentials! Before I ever pull out my flip-flops, a pedicure is a must!!
I also love getting a manicure in a bright shade to really get me feeling springy!!
Speaking of flip-flops and sandals, I have 2 brands that I absolutely LOVE!! I love love love Tory Burch sandals and flips. They are comfortable but also dressy enough to wear for different occasions. For wearing at the pool or on the beach, I absolutely love Havianas brand flips. I probably own no less than 20 pairs of flip flops!!!
Another spring essential for me would be a new phone case. Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with phone cases. I positively adore Kate Spade phone cases!
And for those days when the glorious sun is shining down upon us, a classic pair of Ray-Bans is a definite spring essential!
I would absolutely LOVE to know what items are must-haves for you in the spring! I love trying new brands of things, so if there is something you really love, please share!
