Also, I noticed during my wake-up call Wednesday, the days are getting shorter, friends. Boo.
So let's see, what have I been up to?
Lots of time outside. This whole central A/C thing in our new place is really throwing me off. It's the first time I've had central A/C since I lived with my parents 11 years ago and I am not used to waking up and not immediately knowing what the weather is like. So patios are all the sweeter.
My parent's came to visit and see our new place while celebrating my sister's birthday (a bit early). We hung out in Logan Square with brunch at The General and farmer's market fun. Then we went sailing. I love the relaxation of the water.

I went to Indiana for work and Mike & I explored Fort Wayne and Indianapolis before heading back to Chicago. We were able to visit Sun King Brewery and the neighborhood Mass Ave. in Indianapolis, which we really liked.
I spent a weekend in Missouri with my parents and niece and nephew.
|It's a good thing I have these two as my doctors since i never seem to make time for a real one...|
Seeing lots of friends and getting lots of blisters from so much walking. I am not complaining. How nice to be able to walk for so long outside!
I love living on Logan Boulevard. Saturday we were sitting outside and started to hear music so we went to investigate until we found there was a free concert by the monument!
We're also becoming a bit spoiled with parking. If the spots right in front of our place are taken, I sigh and park a block away. A month ago, Mike would rejoice when he found parking 4 blocks away.
Now I'm rambling, but I'm starting to feel like I have a bit of a handle on life. I even texted one of my friends who Mike & I ran into when we looked at the apartment we're now living in. She said we should get together once I'm settled and I just got around to it...oh well. Summer and Chicago.
