Summers in Chicago are the days that I long for. Hot sun on my skin. The sun and I have a very special relationship. I swear every time that I am out with the sun beaming down on me, I can feel myself getting full of energy and life. I know, that sounds a bit dramatic, but I swear it’s true. LOL
Lately in Chicago, our hot days are taking longer to get here. We are currently in the middle of April and still SNOWING! Needless to say, I am really missing summer days right now. Hopefully, soon, we will see them again. Until then, here is a blast from the past post:
This summer in Chicago has not been the hottest. I don’t know what is happening with the weather lately, but it has been all over the place. Chicago has days where it begins cloudy, starts storming in the afternoon and by evening its nice and sunny and hot. So, having a whole day of heat and sun is really a luxury now. Luckily, the other day we had one of these days so Kat & I decided to have a picnic out by our neighborhood park. It was such a relaxing way to have lunch together. I wish we would have done more of it during the summer, but seeing as we have very little summer left we might not get another chance at a picnic this year. At least we have something to look forward to next summer. We ended up having some Banh Mi, mine was from a store and Kat decided to make her own. We also got a mango smoothie and some salad. It all turned out to be extremely good! The Air & Water show was on this day also and living so close to the lake, we got to see and hear the planes.
