Grant Park

A few pictures taken in Grant Park, not so long ago.
They include: One cat, many apples, and two delightfully out of focus people.

Art Institute of Chicago

I went to Chicago for my birthday back in July.  We visited the Art Institute and immediately fell (madly) in love with it.

So hey..

Dearest Internet, 
First of all, I think you've come to realize I'm no damn good at computers.
My beloved Mac has been on the fritz and I really have no clue what to do when that happens, if you've stuck around for my four month absence, 
I'm here to say that I am so, so, so sorry. 
I have been taking (many) pictures in the meantime.  I'm working on editing and writing posts to share with you.
Warmest regards,

P.S. I am, however, good at iPhones, so you can check me out on Instagram!
