'Live the Life You've Imagined' Part 7

We started off the week in Chicago spending time with Josh's family. On Sunday we drove into the city to have a family photo taken. Sunday happened to be September 11th. I was randomly taking snapshots of the skyline while leaning over my sister in law through the car window. It wasn't until today that I realized I captured the image of a September 11th memorial in the foreground.

1. I recently discovered a tiny Mexican grocery store in my neighborhood. It has a lot of charm and has helped me avoid making trips to the giant grocery store. 2. Roses from our garden. They make me happy : ) 3.We went to a festival over the weekend. This used to be the only game I was allowed to play at the fair. 4.Coneflowers. I paid $1 for a small plant at a garage sale and it finally bloomed! 5. My in-laws only live ten minutes away. I was there as soon as they opened on Saturday.  6. I80/94 7. Darien Festival 8. Gladiolus from my mother-in-law 9. Vegetables from our CSA and fruit to make my cold go away.

I'm still working on expanding my non-red & khaki wadrobe
and I need to convince somebody to take these photos for me.
