My blogging has really taken a backseat in my life over the past few months, and in some ways I've missed it. I've certainly missed the archival aspect - being able to look back at how we filled our days, and the different adventures that we've gone on. I've also - really - missed the writing aspect. Selecting a topic, writing, editing, writing some more. I hope to get back to this soon.
The past week was a good one - kicked off by my favorite weekend of the year and then by our third (!!!) wedding anniversary. It's an honor and privileged to be married to Scott. The rest of the week was filled with projects around the condo (less than three more weeks until we close on our new house, seven weeks until the sale of our condo is complete). Saturday night was the highlight of our weekend - we rented Divvy bikes, and rode them downtown to a concert at Northerly Island, a cool venue overlooking the Chicago skyline. We had lawn seats, so we brought a blanket and bought some beers. It was a Jack Johnson show, and at one point, there were Navy Pier fireworks immediately to the right of where he was playing - it was a true Chicago "moment" and one I won't soon forget.
