A walk in the park

These photos are of our walk in the park yesterday.

You know what else is a walk in the park? This weather we’ve been having! Amiright?? Somebody pinch me!

My hair was completely destroyed by the humidity this morning, but I’m not even mad – I’m impressed. It’s March!

Look at this weather.com forecast:

It was colder than this last year in June.

And did you notice that it’s going to be 71 degrees on Saturday? On St. Patrick’s Day? In Chicago?? Now that’s a recipe for mayhem if I ever saw one…

February Photo a Day: Night

I took this photo one night last fall on my walk home from work.

Ben Franklin looks quite fetching in the moonlight, no? (I’m not sure if that’s who this is supposed to be, but who else in history had such a loveable potbelly??)

Sparkling wine at The Poison Cup

So many reasons to celebrate, so many sparkling wines to choose from!

New Year’s Eve is fast approaching (like, tomorrow!),  and since sparkling wine is my drink of choice no matter what the occasion, I plan on drinking it all. night. long.

This may seem like a dangerous, hang-over-inducing proposition to some people. But worry not, my friends. I’m no amateur. It’s all about pacing. And really, just the mere act of holding a glass of sparkling wine in my hand makes me feel a little more festive.

In the spirit of New Year’s Eve and sparkles and wine and feeling festive, I went with some friends on Wednesday night to a sparkling wine tasting at a cute little wine shop in Lincoln Park called The Poison Cup.

Unlimited tastes of ten different sparkling wines and the bonus of good company? Heaven, is that you??

We had a great time, and I ended up buying a brut cava to drink on New Year’s Eve. Can’t wait to pop that cork!
