It’s been a while since I’ve had an “I love Chicago” moment. So long in fact that I was beginning to wonder if I’d made the right decision to move to this city. My mind was starting to imagine moving to a new city, a new country, a new place to call home. And then today happened. I spent 8.5 hours at a job I love. I was wearing a new cute skirt (thanks to my roommate). The weather was absolute perfection. I spent a mere, but beautiful, 20 minutes sitting in the sun on my lunch break. Tulips were in full bloom. My friends and I met up – the first time in months where all 4 of us could be in the same place at the same time. On my way to meet them, the goosebumps formed and I suddenly had the thought: damn, I love Chicago.
I wrote this one over a year ago and I’m a bit sad to say that I haven’t been so smitten since. Hopefully today was a turning point!
