cacti at the garfield conservatory in chicago

we're back from a lovely mini vacation in chicago. i don't know how we managed it, but we somehow got to see a lot of our former home, visit with jan's parents, and relax all at the same time. we also saw two fun (and funny) shows - david sedaris at the chicago theater and rock & roll: impatience by lucky pierre. also there were stops at the garfield conservatory, lincoln park conservatory, lincoln park zoo and the mca as well as much thrifting, hotel room bubble baths and polish food. all in all, a very good time. you can see it all right here.

in other news...
i'll be adding a list of my favorite places to visit in new york over on the sidebar in the next few weeks. i get asked for a list a lot, so i figured it might be good to just add one to the blog.

also, i just finished up a stellar swap with my friend fanja over at le train fantôme. here's what i sent to her...
and here's what she sent to me...
i loved it ALL! thanks so much fanja!

...and and no one belongs here more than you.

see you all tomorrow...
its excellent to be back!
