Autumn in Chicago
When I first moved to Chicago I always heard Midwesterners raving about how they loved seeing all four seasons. Being a Louisianian at heart, of course I thought they were (a) lying, (b) rationalizing or (c) crazy. Now that I’ve lived in Chicago a while, I kind of see their point and am rather hoping there’s a (d) category. I got to pondering the seasons this weekend, because (1) I have no life and (2) I took my Fall clothes out of storage. I'm looking forward to wearing scarves, jackets... and sleeves. I'm also getting excited about Fall colors (I love Fall drives and taking pictures of trees with their leaves changing color); I even chatted with my friend Suj about going snowboarding in a few months. Still while I’m looking forward to Fall, I could do without Winter. I’m a three-season girl that way.
