Crazy Busy 2013

It's April 2014, and it's been five moths since my last post. Where did this time go? My full time job took over my life about a year ago, and I seem to have a hard time getting it back. Last year, around this time, the company I work for started the process of acquiring one of the iconic landmarks in Chicago - John Hancock Center, located on the north Michigan Avenue. Within couple of months we closed the deal and the fun begun... That iss pretty much where I've been for the past year. Working, working and working...

The 2013 was little crazy, and little busy. But we managed to get out of town few times during the year, we went to New York City back in May, then the week long Shelbyville camping over July 4th. We spend most of the summer in the city, enjoyed our new set up on the deck, hang out on the beaches. Last weekend of July, we traveled to Mackinac Island, MI, for Tim's parents 50th wedding anniversary weekend. And week later off to three days of Lollapalooza, my birthday treat :) We ended the summer with a quick weekend in Door County, WI. Just the three of us. We rented a cabin at the Door County Camping Retreat, and spend few days laying low, enjoying beautiful fall weather, and celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary.

Fall went by so quickly, trying to soak up the last rays of the sun before the winter, we spend weekends outside, in the Chicago parks. Thanksgiving was short and sweet with too much wine, we traveled to Boston/Cape Cod the next morning for a wedding. It was cold and we had first snow of the season that week. After that, the craze of Christmas started, and December was over before i had a chance to blink. Family Christmas, and fun New Years Eve party with my siblings marked the end of the 2013.

Chicago is a great music city, with so many great music venues, and concert places. So we decided to jump on it again, and see as many bands as we could squeeze into our schedules. In February, we saw my favorite band Hunter Valentine, Deer Tick at the City Winery in May, then summer started with Zac Brown Band in Alpine Valley, WI. We saw FUN at the Taste of Chicago. Then, as I already mentioned - Lolla 2103 - Mumford & Suns, The Lumineers, Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend, Tegan & Sarah, Ellie Goulding, and many many more. Cindy Lauper - She's So Unusual Tour at Chicago Theater. Fall, UC Pavilion - The Avett Brothers with Deer Tick (score! 2 great bands in one show). Bottom Lounge - The Mowglis, and few other shows, I don't remember the names...

Reflecting on the past year, made me realize that we have done so much, despite being so busy with both of our careers. I love going through the pictures on my iphone, perfect documentation of the year.

Here is to New 2014! I hope it's going to be better in many ways!
