Scenes From A Chicago Summer

Even though I have lived in Chicago for about three months now, I still can’t believe it sometimes.  Don’t get me wrong, I love this city, but if you had told me that one day I would live here, I would have laughed.  If you had told me that I would absolutely love it, I would have thought you were crazy.  But it’s true, I live in this beautiful city and I totally love every minute of it!  I thought that today I would share the pictures I have taken these past few months.  Some of them are from my runs along Lake Shore Drive, some of them are from my walks all over town, and some of them are from places Adam and I have gone this summer.  These have been the scenes of my Chicago summer.  Enjoy!

Lake Shore Runs

I am so incredibly blessed to be able to end all my runs right at the lake.  Most days I get a beautiful sunrise, or waves crashing up onto the steps.  It’s a really neat way to end my run and start my day.

Walks all over town

Everyday I try to get out for a walk.  I have literally walked all over the place, seeing the sites, getting to know all the streets and shops, and seeing the things that this city has to offer.

Things to do, people to see

There are literally thousands of things to do on any given day in Chicago.  Adam and I have tried a few things out and love what this city has to offer!

Kind of hard to see but that couple down by the lake just got engaged! I was a total creeper and clapped after the dude proposed. Sorry I'm not sorry!

Seriously, this summer has been amazing and I am beyond blessed to be able to live in Chicago.  I can’t wait to see what else this town has in store for me!
