There have been a LOT of things going on in my world lately, and unfortunately blogging has not been one of them.
Long story short, I accepted a new job early last week and I start next Monday! In the meantime, I have this entire week off to bask in the sunshine and frolick through fields of wildflowers. (Note: Right now it’s really cloudy and I’m in the city, probably at least 20 miles away from the nearest wildflower. I guess this is when I realize I don’t actually live in The Sound of Music? I may need a moment to process that.)
I spent this past weekend celebrating my career move (more on that later) and Will’s 30th birthday, which involved me planning a fabulous surprise party! Then having to cancel it! Because Will had to travel for work! And ruined everything! (Ok, not really – I had to do a little rescheduling, but was still able to surprise him. I just like to do that thing where I pretend to be mad at people for things that are entirely out of their control. Is that a thing?)
I also celebrated my friend Kim’s 30th birthday (April was a busy month for birthing cool people back in 1982) and went to tea with my friend Laura and my mom at the gorgeous Driehaus Museum in River North.
The weird thing is that the only photos I took during the entire weekend were completely random and had almost nothing to do with these events. But I will show them to you anyway because otherwise this post would be completely lacking in visual stimulation. And if you’re like me, your favorite part of reading is the pictures.
Celebratory vodka and Limonata!
I made food! Edible food!
And this is the result! Just kidding. This is the Illinois Wesleyan alumni tea at the Driehaus Museum. Also, I’m done with the exclamation points.
Beautiful chandelier at the Driehaus.
I challenge anyone to top the randomness of this post. I’m pretty sure it can’t be done.
