Taking In The Beauty


One of my favorite things to do since being in Chicago is going for runs by Lake Michigan! I only have to walk a few blocks to reach a paved path right along the water and it is absolutely beautiful. Every time I get a mile out or so, I can’t help but stop and turn around to take in the scenery and breathe in the fresh air.

There are always so many people out – and lots of cute doggies – and on days when the weather is nice, it is pure bliss. I am definitely going to keep doing the best I can to take advantage of this treat that is literally right outside my door.


With such a busy week, I haven’t had time for much more exploration in the evenings since I come home exhausted. When I start to get really tired around 10:00 pm, I laugh at myself because I feel like an old woman. I did make time for a rare activity of mine a couple nights ago though – real cooking all by myself! My parents are so skilled in the kitchen, I have been spoiled all these years and unfortunately did not come away with all their talent. So, as you can imagine, I was pretty proud of my small accomplishment…since it was a pretty big one for me!


Yuuumm chicken & Hook ’em 🙂

I can’t believe Week 3 has come and gone, this is crazy. I’m working hard to make sure I soak up every moment in this beautiful city and am excited to check out some cool things around town this weekend with my roommates. Hope everyone has a happy Friday!
