flying high over the chicago sky.

the air and water show
was chicago's BIG event of the weekend.

[this gorilla - or king kong, maybe?- is there every year. makes you look up, doesn't it?]

[mmm, i love cotton candy. so delish.]

[we watched vince vaughn and his mom parachute out of planes over the city. i thought it was cute that the announcer said vince vaughn would not have jumped out of the plane if it wasn't for his mom.]

we watched the blue angels during the finale. i have been their fan since i was a little kid.
having grown up on a military base and being a navy-brat, daddy took us to all the shows.
i still love the roar of the engines as they fly over us. there is such a thrill to it.

my lovely roommate and her finace, josh.

...and here i am with my fiance and my best friend.
(i love saying that!)
the air and water show was a good break to packing. our apartment is a current wreck. though i find it a little stressful ('cause i hate living in disorganization), i also find it rather sad since its another day closer to moving. it's a bittersweet time, for sure. moving is hard but i look forward to the brand new season ahead. it's a good motivation as i continue to seal-up these boxes and pack my things away for the next adventure ahead.
[happy tuesday!]
