Every time I leave Chicago for a long period of time, I almost forget how much I'm in love with it. Then why I get back, it really hits me in the feels..a lot.. Like insert the cheesy movie music a lot. I spent an entire day on Michigan and in Millennium Park to enjoy the nice weather the other day. My friends almost killed me - apparently this part of town isn't "real Chicago", it's "tourist Chicago." And one of them was seriously concerned that spending 9 months outside of Chicago changed my perception of it and where to go. Whether or not that's true, I enjoyed playing tourist and running around carrying a huge Nikon, a backpack, and a sloppy smile as I awkwardly laid on the ground taking pictures of tulips and landscapes. Please don't judge. It really helped me connect with my hometown okay?!
