It’s fitting that the first day of fall was this past weekend, as it seemed to usher in an era of transition. I unpacked some warmer clothes, got a new haircut, and added a few new accessories to the mix as the weather leveled off and stuck around the mid 60s. We went into the City for a couples dinner, where I caught up with friends who are busy leading their adult lives all across Chicagoland, and then we headed up to Waukegan to walk another leg of the Des Plaines River Trail (our last visits documented here and here) and to kiss my boyfriend’s childhood home goodbye for the last time. It was a poignant moment that officially put the summer behind us and encouraged us look forward to new places, experiences and traditions.
