Today, I rekindled my love affair with Chicago. Let me just start out by saying that I have grown to love this city, even with its crushing traffic and horrible, long winters. But the amazing food, architecture, arts, natural beauty and mixed cultures make it a fantastic place to live. Armed with rare bearable winter temperatures, and sunny, blue skies, Christine and I took it upon ourselves to spend the day outside, strolling around downtown with no particular place to go. It feels like it has been ages since I last had some free time to do whatever I wanted for the day (being that marathon training took up 4 months of my free time), so it was just what my soul needed- to spend the day enjoying this fair city with a good friend.

    My ❤ will always belong to Chicago! As much as I would love for you to move back to SF, I'm thankful you're out there to show me all the city's newest treasures. xoxo

    Wah. Does this mean you’re not ever moving back? 😉
