Sofia, today your dad and I renewed our spirits.  We spent the day in one of our favorite Chicago neighborhoods and took advantage of the nice weather we've been having lately.  You still love to listen to Beirut while we drive along the lakeshore.  You still absolutely hate watching us eat, but soon enough you'll be sitting up at the table with us at all our favorite restaurants.  We spent time walking around the beach -- you came too!  (You were sleeping though, tired-pants).  I hope that one day when you're feeling down, you'll ask me to take you to the water.  We'll run in the sand with the wind carrying us wherever it leads and we'll just simply be.  Every once and a while you find those moments that truly give you the momentum to keep pursuing your dreams, to keep pushing forward.  Sofia, today is the day to tread upwards and learn that it's never to late to chase dreams.

I have a lot of photos from the beach this week, I've been shooting non-stop with the new 5d!  I figured instead of cramming them all into one post I'd try to spread them out this time.  :)  Hope you all have had a fantastic weekend.
