Good morning DOS readers and subscribers!

Today’s post is brought to you by none other than “The Hubster”!  What’s the occasion you ask?  Well, today is DOS’ birthday!  And I thought it’d be good to give her a break today.  Something just occurred to me… isn't it ironic that she goes by the name of “DOS” and her birthday happens to be on 2/22?  I wonder if she meant that.

So anyway, I want to thank all of you for your support in what she does.  Blogging is not easy and she puts in countless hours into sharing her passion for fashion, food, friendships, and simply life in general with all of you.  When she sees a comment on one of her posts or a new subscriber, the smile that’s on her face is priceless.  You all mean so much to her and I thank you again.

So behind the scenes of her photo shoots for the blog, I want you all to know that I get yelled at A LOT.  Out of every 20 or so pictures I take, 1 makes the cut.  As you can imagine, it’s very frustrating for her and I’m surprised that I have yet to see a 6-inch heel flying towards my face.  On second thought, I’m actually not that surprised.  Her aim is poor and she would NEVER risk damaging her shoes in any way.  So maybe one day it will be a flip flop flying at my face.  LOL!  Additionally, I’m a pretty lazy guy.  I want to go where we have to go for the photo shoot (hopefully somewhere close to home), take a few quick pictures, and go back home.  She even has to beg, nay, FORCE me to go in the first place.  You see what she has to put up with to bring you all your weekly dose of DOS?

She truly is an amazing woman and I admire her for her discipline, fashion sense, level of passion, patience, and her childish excitement.  She is young at heart and tries to always see the joy in life and never take herself too seriously.  I’m super impressed with what she does on this blog on top of everything else she has going on in her life.  She even whips up a home cooked meal for us for dinner most nights.  She really uses this blog as a way to challenge herself and test her potential.  Each day she wants to get better and explores new ways to improve her skill-set, while still trying to keep it light and fun for all of you.  Do you know she asks me to read almost every post and says, "Is it funny?  I thought it was funny.  Why didn't you laugh?  Oh God, was it cheesy?!"

So on this day, I have a challenge for all you loyal readers.  The best gift we could collectively give her for her birthday is more public subscribers!  So if you’re not subscribed to this blog, please do so and share this post with as many social media outlets as you can!  I know we can do it and even if we don’t succeed, I know that she will be overwhelmingly touched by our efforts.  Also keep leaving her feedback on what you are enjoying and what you would like to see her try out in the future.  She loves to hear from all her readers and cheeses at every comment, FB like, and Tweet.

Thanks for taking the time to read this today and I know that my writing is not as fun as DOS’ to read so for that, I apologize.  Again, DOS and I appreciate each and every one of you.  This blog will only get better in time (as I get better in using a DSLR camera) and you all are our motivation!

Before leaving, please leave a comment wishing DOS a happy birthday and don’t forget to subscribe and share this post!  Thanks everyone and I hope you all have a fantastic day!  Peace!

-The Hubster

Hi DOS -

Happy Birthday! I randomly found your blog via a series of clicks through the web abyss. I love that you embrace Chicago and think your doing a great job. On a random side note - were you at Roka on Tuesday night? With a party of say 5 or 6? That was the first day I came upon your site. I was out at dinner that night and was thinking "I may have seen this girl from somewhere." So there's a birthday mini-prez: public recognition.

And if you were't at Roka - disregard the above and umm - well, Happy Birthday.
