A year ago today...

Do you ever stop and think what was I doing a year ago? Well a year ago today the mister and I were flying to Chicago and being shown around the city by one of my awesome cousins, the day before this fabulous wedding.

We had brunch here...

...where we ate some amazing food...

(Banana and pineapple infused french toast - and yes I do remember what it was called, that's how good it was). 

...and enjoyed the sites!

It was a whirlwind trip (we were barely gone 48 hours), but I'd love to go back at some point and spend more time there.

Then we got home and our camera crapped out and almost ate all our pictures. Ah, memories.

What were you doing a year ago today? Isn't it amazing how time flies?

Happy Friday!

What a great day. I've always wanted to head to Chicago. I wrote a very similar post yesterday (23 Jun) about my 23 June 2010. 24th of June saw me still in the Greek Islands, sailing from Paros to Ios where was more sunshine, cocktails, a quick hike and some more watersports. This week last year was all around spectacular.

I'll be in Chicago next weekend. It'd be so much fun to go with you & Ben sometime!

I do love that giant reflective blob thing. A lot.

I think we totally need to do a meet up in Chicago one of these days. It's pretty central for alot of us! It would be so so fun!

I was actually randomly thinking about your trip to Chicago this week. No idea what sparked that memory. I was thikning about how your friend got married and her husband wore his military uniform I think? Again, no freaking idea why I was thinking about YOUR trip to Chicago. I am weird like that. :)

Happy Friday! woo hip!

Oh, and a year ago today, I was probably working and heading to the cabin. And running a freaking lot becuase I was training for the marathon at this point last year!

I love thinking about what I was doing one year ago. It shows me how much has changed, but also how quickly time passes! My life has done a complete 180 since this time last year (for the better, I think), it's crazy to think of all that's happen in a year!

A year ago.
Staring a financial class that would kick my butt but I'd get done, training for a 10k, and resolving to live my life for ME. At least, I like to think that's what I was doing.

Totally agree with Lisa on the Chicago meet-up thing! We SHOULD do that sometime. Also, I've never been to the bean. Ever.

I WOULD TOTALLY COME TO CHICAGO.

Just putting that out there.

Ironically enough I also blogged about biking a year ago today: http://girlwiththeredhair.com/2010/06/35-things-thursday/

And also my great-grandma passed away a year ago today :(

AND it's Erics nieces third birthday today. Whew, big day!

A year ago, I was trying to learn to have a healthy lifestyle. I was eating healthier and I started running. Of course, now I'm back to my old, bad habits, so I need to get back to being healthy!

I've never been to Chicago, but I'd love to go!

Ah, it's my city! And, one of my favorite breakfast spots. I always love to see that other people enjoy it here.

Honestly, I'm not sure what I was doing a year ago, although I do vaguely recall the weather to be a little better than it is now. ; )

I definitely like to think about what I was doing a year ago- and sometimes will just randomly say to Eric "do you know we were doing ___ a year ago?" haha.

I'm going to Chicago in October and I've been once before so I am super excited- it's an awesome city!
