One of our favorite things is to walk, especially around places we have left unexplored. This last weekend, I (LJ) was able to meander my way around a new to me Chicago neighborhood: South Loop. And although I had to leave Christian at home to work on his school things, I was delightedly not alone. I was accompanied by two of my favorite ginger-haired people: Zach and his lovely wife, Jordan.
Although the sun was bright overhead (a beautiful scenario for walking, but not necessarily idyllic for picture taking), we decided to venture out of their brick loft and onto the eclectic and artsy streets that make up this little community.
We walked to a local park complete with families picnicking, children on training-wheel clad bicycles, and canopy upon canopy of big, billowy blossoms resting on top of tree branches.The air was sweet and the sun peeked at us as we pretended to be walking through the clouds.
Out of all the Springs I have seen in my life, I think this one has been the best of all.
