Before this disruption in life I was telling you about a few days ago, summer was off to a good start. Looking back at these times, some just a few weeks ago, I am reminded that life goes on and will return to “normal” soon...
Caught a free concert AND thunderstorm in Millennium Park. Can you see the lightning reflection off the building? I don't know how I caught that moment.
My friend invited me to join her family on a pontoon boat ride. Even though we almost sunk the boat, it was super fun to catch the free fireworks show at Navy Pier (every Wed and Sat in the summer).
Yep, I went trapezing. Probably the most "daredevil" thing I've ever done. It's an awesome outdoor setting along the lake. I'm proud of myself for doing it, but I don't know if I have the guts to go again...
