Is This Real Life?

Hi y'all!  It's been a while, but big things have been happening in my world.  
Here are a few of the high points: 
- moved to Chicago
- turned 30
- explored the city
- spent lots of time with family and friends
- kicked butt at my new job (and I love it - bonus!)

Not too shabby, eh? Needless to say, the last six months have been pretty exciting and completely exhausting.  I wouldn't have it any other way.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself because it seems like I'm dreaming.  

My older sister is only 10 minutes away!  What?!  I can drive home to see my mom for dinner if I feel the mood strike. I am strengthening friendships with some of my favorite people that have known me since I was a mere 10 years old.  And I can run on the lake with the prettiest view of the best city in the world any day I like.  

All is right with the world.  

Here is a glimpse of the last few months in pictures in no particular order:















I could have posted so many more pictures, but I'll spare you for now.  Hoping that my mood will make me want to keep this blog thing going for a bit. 

Happy Monday!
