Our weekend was filled with warm sunshine, swimming in the cold lake, a big end-of-school bash with some fantastic families at our house, a rainy midday movie, and a backyard birthday party this afternoon. Most of all, we were with loads of friends every time we turned around. I can’t believe we’ve been in Chicago just shy of two years and already we’re so dug in here. Our lives are rich and full of all that we wanted them to be, in a way that we have not experienced anywhere else. We are in the right place.
It was fitting that we also celebrated Father’s Day during this heart-warming and satisfying weekend, because similarly, Matt makes our family life rich and full of all that I wanted it to be, back when I imagined having a family. In this way, too, we are in the right place.
Happy Father’s Day to a truly phenomenal father.
