On Saturday, John, my sister, her friend and I headed to Chicago for the day. After stopping by The Bean, the girls headed to the mall, and John and I went off to explore.
The weather was perfect!
We spent most of the day walking by the water, going to Navy Pier, and exploring the Field Museum. I was feeling extra quiet and reflective that day (probably spurred by the fact that I was running on two hours of sleep…).
I spent a lot of the day thinking back to nearly four years ago when John and I went to Chicago for the first time. It was a freezing cold day in October, and we had only been dating three months. We were still very much in that “I can’t sleep at night because I can’t stop thinking about you phase”. Now we are in that “You’ve seen me at my best and worst, and love me even when we get in a tiff on the way there because we are both tired, but we quickly kiss, say I’m sorry and I love you, and get over it phase”.
I am feeling grateful; for the great weekend I had, the people in my life, and where I am right now. I have all kinds of thoughts I want to write about, but I am tired and know I will thank myself tomorrow for going to bed now.
