November is my favorite month and always has been.
With about 8 days until the 9th anniversary of my 29th birthday, I cannot remember a weekend in November this gorgeous. I usually love this month no matter the temperature but I have to say I am impressed with this weekend, in particular.
70 degrees and sunny Saturday, 75 degrees and sunnier Sunday. The picture I found is similar to our weekend minus the mountain and with lots more leaves on the ground.
First, a visit to the park with the kids and then a jump or two on the trampoline.
An MLS playoff series win for the Chicago Fire with a celebration under the clear Chicago sky.
Then - a Sunday afternoon outside with my dad, my sister's brood and my own two kids. You can't beat this!
This post is dedicated to all those who complained all summer long (and part of the fall) about our weather - see, if you just keep living - the good days come. Sometimes two days in a row!
My only hope is that you Chicagoans (or anyone in the midwest for that matter) got out to enjoy it.
I know I did.
