Sam's the best for having these photos tucked away on his desktop. He took most of them during the summer of 2010, right after college graduation. A few things to note:
1/ I still have that flower chain (and you can see it hanging in my dining room here).
2/ Notice the hazy Chicago skyline that looks so tiny in the third photo.
3/ The picnic was a going away for one of my best friends (and roommate at the time), Ellie, who moved to Austin. That day she attempted baking healthy "black bean brownies." I'm giggling just thinking about how bad they were.
