Hope.

Spring has finally made an appearance here in Chicago!
Of course, it's supposed to be gone tomorrow, when the temperatures are supposed to be back down to 40, but it made for a wonderful weekend.
Saturday Clarissa and I headed over to the lake (that's Lake Michigan if you aren't familiar with Chicago) to sit at the beach and read.  We were both reading a book that we're supposed to read for community day in a couple of weeks - Our Black Year.
It was so foreign to the Chicago weather that we've gotten used to.  It truly felt like the whole city had come out of hibernation.  Everywhere we went there were people enjoying the fresh air, walking the dog, riding bikes, etc.  It was like an entirely different place!  It makes me so excited to experience Summer in this city - I have a feeling it's going to be fabulous!
