there was a photobooth at martha’s wedding!

we went location scouting around chicago. we had a fabulous time inadvertently playing tourist in our own city, going several places we just never really think of going.

along the river in chinatown is ping tom memorial park. i love the views of the city skyline from the near southside.

We bit off more than we can chew at joy yee noodle!

since we were already in chinatown, we figured lunch would be a good idea. we ordered two entrees, only to find out that it was family style dining, and we’d accidentally ordered closer to five meals. it was delicious though!

we walked along the bloomingdale trail (which will someday be the 606). it is lovely up there! if you ever try it yourself, though, make sure to wear close toed shoes.

st. mary of the angels. earlier this summer, when we were playing tourist with my cousin, we walked to this beautiful catholic cathedral.

we kicked filming off in this warehouse (it featured heavily in episode 7, part 1). this place is so decrepit and beautiful and amazing and so so so photogenic.

i had to hold myself back from taking alllll of the pictures.

we started filming on jake’s birthday, so his celebration got kind of spread out over the course of a few days.

leaves are turning, and i’m very casually attempting to participate in a photo a day challenge. except i’m trying to take the challenge part out for myself. because otherwise, i get hung up on it, and i miss a day, and then i stress out about it. so this is a more hodge-podge go at it, but i think it’s more successful from my standpoint? if there’s anything worth showing you at the end, i will. this leaf is from a burning bush, which are some of my favorites to watch turn, as they turn a unique reddish pink.

mint tea and mermaid nails. tea and i have been taking an amiable break for a while, but now we’re back with a vengeance!

and we can’t have a general life post without some kitty-ness. baiza finds mornings particularly challenging, and usually opts to sleep them out. i can’t blame her.
