A little bit of everything.

over-the-weekend-homecoming

It was homecoming weekend at my alma mater, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We were set to play Northwestern, a formidable opponent. Though Michigan has won each match against Northwestern over the past few years, most expected an exciting and close game.  Unfortunately for Northwestern, Michigan’s new coach Jim Harbaugh has something to prove.  With a 38 – 0 win, Michigan continued the process of reestablishing its reputation as one of the best teams in college football history.  I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out. Forever, Go Blue!

exploring-downtown-chicago

IMG_6212Over the weekend, I decided to spend some time exploring Chicago, the city I so love yet often take for granted.  Saturday was dedicated to on foot exploration of the most populous downtown attractions.  I spent the day walking along the Mag Mile, taking in the beautiful city views I often take for granted.  I hopped in-and-out of the many stores lining the tourist filled Magnificent Mile, made my way through River North, the Loop and finally Grand and Millennium parks as well as the waterfront.  I even made it a point to visit Cloud Gate (aka ‘The Bean’).  It’s been years since I’ve spent so much time in these areas and this weekend reminded me of why I love this city so much.Chicago Waterfront

I fell in love with the windy city just as I did during my first visit when I was nine years old.  I highly recommend taking some time to explore the city in which you live as though you were new to the area.  There will most certainly be more windy city excursions in the future, rediscovering different sights and neighborhoods in the city I so adore.

Thank you so much for reading and happy Monday!

Welcome Autumn!

welcome-autumn

Welcome AutumnThe fall season has officially begun! As you know, fall/autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I”m ready to welcome the change in weather from hot summer nights to cool and breezy evenings. I look forward to enjoying warm cider and maybe a pumpkin spiced latte or two this season.  Most of all, I’m excited for the oversized sweaters, statement scarves, chic boots and plum lip colors synonymous with fall.

Thank you so much for reading! Happy first day of fall!
