my mom and stepfather came out for a visit recently. it was so fun to show them my new home in indiana and to share chicago with them. highlights of the visit included a tour of notre dame, the chicago river architecture cruise (i had been wanting to do that for so long!! it was amazing), dinner at the blue bird, a backporch breakfast at the mitchell’s, a visit to bookman’s alley in evanston, a walk around lighthouse beach, a puppet show fundraiser for theatre zarko (more on this when i get my film developed) and a goodbye breakfast at the lucky platter. it was a lovely visit. it was hard to say goodbye.
love you guys! come back soon!
this roll of film is from a few weeks ago: more shots of lago michigan; andy mitchell in his white pants and red sneakers (a standard for him this summer); a shamefully delicious macaroon from froehlich’s; a hound; and others.
to come: photos from last weekend with my mom and step-dad. they drove in for a visit. it was lovely.
npr profiled gretchen parlato on their website as well as on ‘a blog supreme.’ sigh. in another life, i would like to come back as a jazz singer. check out the ‘icons among us’ video on her web site if you have a chance. and listen to this cover of stevie wonder’s ‘i can’t help it.’

after a 15 year hiatus, i signed up for a ballet class – it begins this week. i’m so excited.
i’m going to have to try hard not to giggle in class thanks to this post by pop culture librarian.
well they taste like they are anyway.
