Summer in the City

{strawberry picking in California - 2010}

Happy First Day of Summer!

A list of things I'm looking forward to this summer:

  • Celebrating my birthday in early July

  • Movies at the Park - Chicago Park District hosts movies throughout the City at various parks, it's such a fun {and free!} way to spend an evening outdoors

  • Seeing Paul McCartney play Wrigley Field - I've been a Beatles fan since I was 12 years old, and this is {literally} a lifetime experience

  • Evening bike rides along Lake Michigan

  • Festivals throughout the City - the festivals are always such a fun way to check out a new neighborhood

  • Enjoying my favorite frozen yogurt & gelato places on evening walks with Hubby and the dog{s}

  • Taking Lennon to the dog beach

  • Attending my cousin's wedding in Minneapolis, Minnesota in July

  • Planning a visit to a museum downtown

  • Riding my bike to work

  • Switching up my hair-do

  • Soaking up the sunshine as often as the weather {and my work schedule} permits

  • Eating lots of summer fruit: strawberries, blueberries, cherries

  • Spending time with family


  1. pilar! i need to know! have you read love wins, and what do you think???

  2. I think it's a great "food for thought/reflection" book. I'm not certain I necessarily believe what he discusses, but it provides an opportunity to seek and reflect. Does that make sense? Overall, I recommend!
