What’s new? The heat here is new and I am not digging it. I am so ok with 70-80 degrees but above that I am not too happy (unless I am on the beach with a drink in hand!). And it is going to be HOT here all week!
Another new thing around here? I actually went to Navy Pier on Monday. I have lived here my whole entire life and this is only the second time I have been to Navy Pier. I never went to the old Navy Pier. Two years ago I went to Navy Pier for a bridal shower but I didn’t walk the entire pier. Monday was awesome! We took the “L” and this is only the second time I have ever ridden the “L” ever! I am either very lucky or pretty deprived-I don’t know which! Navy Pier was gorgeous! We walked around the pier, rode the ferris wheel and had a great lunch. It was way too hot to be out there but we had a great time. I mean look at the view from the ferris wheel…
Chicago is an awesome city…I just need to enjoy it more.
