Slept in a bit today and grabbed breakfast at Deb's Cafe near his parents' house (see the pic below, isn't it cute?!). Check out this old couple who read their papers the whole time and never spoke. Pretty impressive and surprisingly cute.

We slept super hard last night, woohoo!! Had coffee and breakfast wraps and then headed over to AJ's aunt's house for some swimming! Laid out for a bit and enjoyed the water (and this weird quote on a pillow, see below). Hopped in his dad's jeep later to see the sunset and grab dinner!

We made it! Left Chicago this morning and arrived around 12pm. We sat around and lounged on AJ's parents' patio with some beers. Took a nap later and then fired up the wood burning oven and a fire and made some pizzas!! Such a great Friday :)

Almost Michigan time

Michigan bound in the morning. Headed up to AJ's tonight for some dinner and TV. Excited to escape the city for a few days!!

The rain continues!! This first pic was at 9am!! It got super dark and stormy, then cleared up, then stormy again, then cleared up, then a little more rain. Geeeeeeeez. Fortunately, I missed the rain on both commutes. But yeah, enough rain!! We saw Spider-Man Homecoming with Alex and Seth. I loved it! I was so impressed. I was not a huge fan of the other movies. This one felt like a high school comedy. It helps when the high school kids are basically high school age and not 30. Well done!!

Lightning storm tonight!! It didn't stop for like 2 hours. We had a little rain but not much. The rain this spring and summer has been fuckin insane. I would like it to stop pleeeease.

Sleeping Beauty!

Sleeping Beauty in 70mm at the Music Box!!! So exciting. This was my favorite movie as a kid. I was OBSESSED. I had it memorized and would have to wake my dad up in the morning so he could turn on the VCR.....until he wrote a note on the VCR that said "push power, push rewind, push play." Simple enough. The theater was full tonight, it was totally sold out and just amazing to watch. Thanks Music Box!!

The best

A beautiful Saturday! Went to the Lincoln Park Conservatory and took engagement pics for my friend Karsen. Then stopped by Kelly's to hang with her and Gideon on my way to AJ's. Wonderful people and a wonderful day!

Little bit of rain

I packed up my towel and clothes and got dressed and grabbed my bike, put my helmet on, got on my bike, rode a block.....and then........THUNDER. Dangit. No rain for about a mile and then it started pouring. I waited under Lake Shore Drive at Buena. Waited about 15 minutes and then made my way downtown. It sprinkled the whole time but felt pretty nice. And made me realize I need more waterproof gear. Still a great ride. I love my bike! (We also saw Baby Driver. It's amazing. Great soundtrack and cast and a little surprising, in a good way. Go see it!)

Geology rocks

My rock collection!! I actually have a few rocks from overseas. 2 from Greece and one from....I forget where.... But every time we go to Loyola Beach, we always find the coolest rocks! I took these home last week and can't wait to find more!

Sweet Home Chicago

Today marks 13 years in Chicago!! Man, what the hell have I been doing? As much as I've accomplished, it never feels like enough. I've been thinking about what is next. I've been doing admin work for 13 years which I'm sure I'll continue but my new and current title of office manager really makes me just want to be a manager and not an assistant anymore. This might be my next goal, career wise. I dunno. It's a scary thought but I would much rather not be anyone's assistant anymore. ANYWHO, I'm pretty lucky and I have loved every second of it....even the horrible moments. Here's to 13 more years!!

Yay Monday! (I never say that)

Day 3 of my 4 day weekend!!! Went to the gym, the beach, and then AJ stayed over and we watched a movie and fell asleep pretty early. Not bad for a Monday.

Bikes, brunch, pie!

Rode our bikes to Hash in Ukrainian Village for brunch with friends. Then onto Garfield Park Conservatory! This place is enormous and I've somehow never been! We walked around for an hour or so then headed back north and stopped at Bang Bang Pie for key lime and strawberry. Yummmm!! Then we each went home and I sat and watched TV and had a beer. Best Sunday ever!!
