bump : week 24










Life has been cold and rainy, with bits of snow and ice thrown in for good measure.  We live in what I would consider "typical" Chicago - bricks and alleys, power lines, sirens blaring, and of course, houses built only a few feet from one another.  There are so many wonderful places to see in the city, but my heart still aches for the lush green and open fields of the countryside.  When we finally settle in on a true home, I'm hoping we can compromise somewhere in the middle.  Until then, I am seeing bits of the beauty around me - even if it is fighting to stay alive.
