Autumn in Chicago

Fall has long been my favorite season. I love the cooler weather, changing leaves, and some of the best produce of the year. In Los Angeles, fall is typically one of the hottest times of the year, so I was thrilled when the oppressive heat we lived through this summer in Chicago turned into cooler temperatures, warm clothes, and actually being able to sleep under the covers instead of on top of them. The colors were just as stunning as I had imagined. Several weeks ago, my friend Matt and I made a day out of going to the Chicago Botanic Gardens to check out the changing leaves (photo set here). Just this past weekend, I ventured out into my own back yard of Lincoln Park to snap some of the colors before the leaves are completely gone. Without sounding too cheesy, I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful place with historic buildings framed by a stunning landscape. In between the parties, I am trying to take full advantage of discovering this awesome city that I live in.
