work has been absolutely insane for me lately. so much so that i nearly forgot i had these photos! these were taken on a day so hot, i honestly could care less what i looked like - which is clear why i'm looking like trash, standing in the grass! when it was still summer (for one incredibly too short month), i took a day to enjoy the art institute and the surrounding chicago area. unfortunately, summer is over in chicago, and i hate to admit this, but fall looks like it will come and go quickly this year too.
