Perfect Day For A Picnic

picnic

When the sun shines in Michigan, it is truly beautiful ..And speaking as a true Michigander- I do not take the nice weather for granted. Last week there was snow on the ground, but today my friends and I had a picnic under a perfect blue sky. We exchanged great food and even better stories. I always cherish the time I get to spend catching up with these lovely ladies!

Today.

Today was such a perfect day. It sounds silly because by all standard accounts it was nothing out of the ordinary. But, the sun was shining, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and I got to catch up with one of my good friends who I hadn’t seen in months. Summer is so close I can almost taste it, and I am so so very excited to see what adventures the next couple months bring.

Chicago!

Just returned home from a [quick] trip to Chicago!

My friend Brittany and I went to the city on Wednesday to go see Swedish House Mafia perform. The group is currently on their last tour because they are all going to venture out as individual artists. I have always loved electronic dance music and SHM is one of my all-time favorite groups. Their music puts me in such an amazing trance and just makes me so happy. Even though the show was during the week, and I had to miss some classes, I couldn’t not see them.

The show was unbelievable and I am so happy I decided to go.

 

Thursday, Brittany and I just explored the city. We’ve both been to Chicago enough times that we’ve done most of the “touristy” things, which means we didn’t really have an agenda. It was so nice to just walk around and explore. I think that’s when you see the most, when you’re not really looking for something in particular, or trying to get somewhere in a hurry. We ended up getting a bit lost but it was great because we saw some wonderful new areas we’d never been to before.

As with any trip, food is most important, here are some snapshots of some of the eating I did while there:

While in Chicago, I also got to meet up with one of my friends from Luleå, Sweden. It’s been 5 years since the last time we saw each other! She’s studying at the university in Chicago now, so we’ll definitely be seeing more of each other. I missed her so so much.

Overall, the trip was great. Chicago is always a pleasure to visit and I cannot wait until my next trip back!
