First Signs of Spring

After the most brutal and longest winter on record Chicago is FINALLY starting to see some spring time temperatures.  (Never mind that it snowed again this week and I had to break my winter coat back out of storage...)
These photos were taken on one of those rare spring days.  It was a bit cloudy and overcast with a light drizzle...but it actually reached 60 degrees. 
I couldn't help but run around for joy!  Seriously, after spending two years in California it has been so difficult for my body to readjust to the frigid temperatures. 


If I remember correctly I am almost certain that we did a double feature this day, although I can't remember off hand just what we saw.  I have been so bad with keeping up with movies lately.  I use to see everything that my cinema had to offer, but these days I just don't have the time.
The cafĂ© I work at during the week is so busy and I work almost straight through for 8-9 hour days.  By the time I am off work I'm just so exhausted.
I'm trying to work on that though.  I want to make the most of the summer and start making art again and getting a portfolio together.  It's been too long.  

This last photo was taken at the Logan Theatre for the season 7 Mad Men premiere party.  Roibeard had to work, which is why he is in uniform, but I got to get gussied up and sip manhattans.  It was amazing and I am so glad that I finally got to attend one of these events.
