back to the big city

Oh how I love the fall. Yes, I realize I may have mentioned that once or twice lately. Anyhoo, fall is here in Chicago and I couldn't be happier. My best friend came to visit this weekend and along with my best friend here at the law school, we roamed the streets of downtown Chicago in the crisp air and got a tasty new beverage from Starbucks (I'll come back to that later) and for just a moment, I thought that maybe God had decided to create some sort of special earthly heaven for the day... but then I was snapped out of my dream by an angry cab driver who laid on his horn for approximately 6 seconds.

Welcome back to Chicago :)

oh, p.s. favorite new drink from Starbucks: Toffee Mocha--it's even good when made with nonfat milk and no whip. ridiculous. Also, while I have not yet tried it and thus cannot recommend it, the barista recommended a drink called a Salted Caramel Signature Hot Chocolate. Perhaps I'll try that tomorrow.

  1. I laughed out loud at the thought of you snapping back into reality when you heard the horn. It reminded me of You've Got Mail when she is in this delusional world of happiness with being in love with New York in the fall, and doesn't even hear the fight happening on the street nearby. Love you!
