It's spring in Chicago! I will have to post some pictures of all the beautiful tulips that are in bloom aplenty. Today is sunny and gorgeous and I've already been out to get some grocerries at Target with Ms. M (and it's just now 9:30am). I enjoy going when stores are not packed so I can take my time to browse. I sipped my Starbucks Americano and made the rounds, snapping up some new socks, a pair of shorts, and a summer shirt for Mags. In a few hours, I'm headed to the airport to meet up with my friend Karissa (from college). She is living in the Azores (the islands off the coast of Portugal) with her family and is headed to see her parents in CA for a month (it's a surprise!). She has a long layover here, which works out perfect because we will get to meet eachother kiddos for the first time! We hope to take some pictures. I think the rest of the weekend will be low-key, just cleaning up the house, settling back in from our travels and reconnecting as a family. We may do our Starbucks run later today (just think, two in one day!).
