Day 5: A picture of your favorite memory

This one was easier than I thought it would be.  It was taken on one of the first of many trips to Chicago we have taken over the years.  We took this trip over during the Fall to see Wilco play.  Eric and I went down to Millennium Park in Downtown Chicago and took our picture in the giant bean-shaped mirror they have there.  I’m cheating a little bit here because I really want to write about our summer trips, but my memory works in kind of a loopy way, so there you go.  Every summer we go to Chicago for the Pitchfork Music Festival.  I chose this picture because this summer marked the 6th year in a row we’ve gone to Chicago in July for this festival, and it’s a trip I’ve always looked forward to.  Those first few years we went, we had just enough money to cover the festival and our hotel and it was always still such a wonderful trip because we were there together.  Having an annual excuse to go every year is nice, but being in Chicago at any time is almost like having our own little cabin in the woods.  It’s all ours to enjoy together.

Also, I really miss this hair on Eric!
