It’s finally happened. The weather has officially changed here in the city of Chicago. This weekend was the first of many of me waking up, sun shining, and me thinking of just being…..out there. The logical part of me knows that 10 minutes out and sun beaming down on my helmet of dreadlocs is not really all that fun. The dreamer in me knows I’m “glowing” in a haze of heat, too cute to care. But! With all the sweating and self conscious pulling at my too short shorts, there comes the familiar energy that we all love when it comes to the summer. You didn’t think you were the only one praying to whatever sun god to bring us the heat, did you?? Walking through the first farmer’s markets of the season, people sweat it out with smiles on their faces, organic heirloom tomatoes on their minds, and an occasional whisper of how hot as shit it is( with a chuckle of course) because nobody wants to be the one to admit that they were the ones that prayed for this. WE ALL PRAYED FOR THIS. So, fellow Chicagoans, we are here. We made it! Now let’s get out there and sweat it out with the sun. We’ve earned it…

Haven’t we?
