I have fallen way behind with updating this blog. So I am writing this almost two months after it happened but I want to illustrate how something so simple can have incredible meaning over time. This was a rare day that Chrissy & I got to spend together. There are several reasons why days like this are so important to me. First, we rarely have the same days off from work. Technically, I was off due to quitting my job. The main reason for quitting...too much time at work, not enough time living my life. Second, I thoroughly enjoying going to the city, so does Chrissy. We might seem strange to some people, who goes to the city to relax? I love the energy of the city. It is contagious and it revitalizes me. Lastly, to be honest I had forgotten about this day. I was reminded of it when I recently found these pictures in my camera. Between September 8th and today, I suffered an injury that I am now recuperating from...more about that in another blog...so I won't be having another day like this one for quite a long time. And that is the important thing to take from today's blog...enjoy the little things in life that make you smile...they add up to a lifetime of happiness.
We started out by walking along the new boardwalk around the lagoon in Lincoln Park.
Then we stopped at the Green City Farmer's Market to pick up some fresh fruit, handmade pasta and artisan cheese.

The perfect day. How often can you really say that? It seems that most of us rarely get to enjoy spending time doing something that we truly love. That is why today is a perfect day, the weather is great and I have all day to ride the single track trails at Sweet Woods and Brownell. I decided to start at Brownell Woods. As soon as I get out of my car, a deer is right in front of me.
It was a very clean campsite with all kinds of recycled artwork and some unique creations.
