Photo Friday’s theme this week is “Cool.” What’s cooler than Car Night in Geneva, Illinois?!
There were a lot of things I saw on my trip to Illinois that I had never seen before:
– Fireflies light up the night like tiny fireworks. (It’s true. I have somehow spent my entire life never seeing a firefly. They are something else…)
– Bright red cardinals and wild bunnies zipping around the neighborhood.
– Lighting storms from the airplane at night.
– The gorgeous city of Chicago.
Other cool things and people:
I will be leaving town tomorrow to spend the week in Hawaii. Two of my dearest friends in the world live in Hana (on Maui) and will be hosting Matt and I at their home. My friend Susan told me that if you can imagine the most beautiful place you can possibly imagine, Hana is a thousand times better than that. Looks like I’ll be snapping a lot of photos!
Jason Heidemann is celebrating his first book! He researched and wrote an irreverent guidebook about Chicago. I was lucky enough to receive the live version of the book on my trip!
The incredible singer/songwriter Martine Locke is recording a new album. I recommend pre-ordering her new album or purchasing one of her others. She is truly an outstanding artist.
