I was determined, despite all what life threw at me, I was going to make this summer count and savor it until the leaves started to change. And I think I accomplished that.
My mom was in town last weekend for a mini girls trip which included a boat ride on Lake Michigan and riding bikes on the lakefront trail. And of course, lots of eating.
Yes, that's Jenny Lewis, my #1 lady. I saw her Lollapalooza aftershow and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. How does someone sound even better live than they do recorded? She sang a lot off her new album as well as some Rilo Kiley hits.
Yeah, I was this close to Jenny // Antique Taco's always adorable set-up
I also got to see Lucius' Lolla aftershow! These girls are fierce and energetic. I would see them live again and again.

One of my favorite spots in the city - the Art Institute of Chicago Gardens. You could be in Europe.
