Hot Town, Summer in the City
The past few weeks have been so good. With Memorial Day last week, it’s finally (un)officially summer, and the weather is cooperating. We have spent so much time outside, just soaking in the sun and enjoying this beautiful city. Dan and I both took off Tuesday last week after Memorial Day, so we had a 4-day weekend to simply relax and do what we wanted, which involved a BBQ with friends, laying out and reading by the lake, going on a run and seeing the new X-Men movie. It was just what the dr. ordered. Warning, photo heavy post ahead!
^Can you spot Lu? She was soooo hot, time for a summer cut!
This weekend was shorter, but just as sun-filled. My friend Rachel found about this free yoga class in Grant Park called Wanderlust. Please check and see if there will be a festival in your city; it was so cool!
^^I work in that tall building behind the park and was very glad to be outside of it this weekend :) Speaking of work, on Thursday night I went to my coworkers place for some authentic Vietnamese food – it was delicious (thanks Tam!):
After yoga in the city, we went to Butterfly Sushi in the West Loop and sat outside to enjoy the beautiful evening:
To cap off the weekend, we ran the Run for the Zoo 5k. We try to do it every year if we can (this was our fourth time). It’s always the first Sunday in June and is a great kick-off to summer. The loop goes through gorgeous Lincoln Park along the water and through the zoo:
Summer is the BEST, don’t you think? Anyway, to cap off this already long post, here are some links from around the web lately, for your enjoyment:

I hope you have a wonderful week! xoxo
