It is officially summer in the city. Today was about 104 degrees and I am NOT complaining. I love the heat. Bring it on. Yesterday we met some friends downtown for a free concert in the park. What a treat! It was hot hot hot, and there were a million people there, but it was so fun and as Sten and I were riding the L home we both decided- THIS is why we live here and love this place. Where else do you get to sit on a blanket on a Monday night, drink wine and listen to music in Millennium Park?

We have about a million of these pictures.

Tonight Sten and I are going to look at our summer calendar. The weekends are filling up fast and I still want to squeeze in some good times. Here is my to-do list for the summa:
- Eat lots of cherries and watermelon
- Bike to the beach once a week, even if its 5pm and I won't get any sun.
- Eat at as many outdoor patios as possible
- already ate at Cafe Ba Ba Reeba for brunch, and The Daily for drinks and pizza.
- Play multiple games of bags on the green space.
- Go on as many walks as humanly possible.
- Draw with chalk.
- Get bathing suit tan lines.
- Traipse aimlessly around the city and explore a few new neighborhoods.
- Go out with my work friends.
- Play with Lauren and Elin at the beach.
- Go to the suburbs and sit on Meredith's porch and sip lemonade.
- Do Zirkouts with Andrew at the beach.
- Love life.
ps. tomorrow I will share a delicious treat I made for dinner tonight... stay tuned.
