*Note: the following post is a reflection on this past Saturday and Sundays Shenanigans *
*waking up in the morning*
Feeling amazing! why? because TODAY is the not just any day, but the first day of Chicago's SPRING AWAKENING!
Mom- "are you getting ready yet? we're leaving soon, your grandma should already be at the church"
Me- "uhhh yea I'm getting ready..."
(85% of me forgot that today was not only Spring Awakening, but my grandmas Baptism in the city)
After getting ready, and brushing my teeth I found myself sitting in the back seat of my parents car daydreaming.... about what the next few hours and days would consist of, nervous I was gonna be late, but excited for what the new adventures would bring I was SO ready.
while sitting in the Church I found my self further daydreaming because the actual sermon was in spanish and a long story short, I lack the spanish speaking gene. Snapping photos away, I was trying to be as courteous and as respectful as I could, but I was also determined to capture pictures of my grandmas special day. Finishing the morning with my family we asked her, so how do you feel now grandma?
"I feel clean inside AND out"
The happiness throughout her face truly showed a transformation I'll always remember and be proud of. Ironically I'm leaving a church to go to a music festival though where only god knows what will happen............ ANYWAYS
here's a few from the morning!
After it was all said and done, what do I do?
RACE HOME LIKE A MAD MAN TO GET TO SOLDIER FIELD AND DANCE MY LIFE AWAY!
until tomorrow folks ;)
