Scenes From A Week: November 17
I might sound like a broken record, but this was one of the best weeks I've had in a long time. Chicago had our first (light) snow of the year and while I don't particularly care for snow, I can't deny that a dusting of it is pretty. Mid-week found me out two nights in a row, first at the Trump Spa (who am I?!) and then at a hotel roof bar. I love how cities look at night, and this week was an opportunity to revel in that. Scott and I spent Friday night on a BYOB sushi date at a new spot near our house. Scott went to Iowa City for a fraternity reunion this weekend, so I took that opportunity to spend the weekend doing exactly what I wanted - long catchup conversations with my mom, a cousin and several girlfriends, painting my nails, deep-cleaning our apartment, and watching the entire first season of GIRLS. It was spectacular - and something I really needed. I will admit to being super psyched when Scott got home on Sunday afternoon (and not just because I waited to watch the Bears game with him). It's the month of gratitude, and I'm grateful for restorative weekends that are both lazy and productive.
