Hey, sunshine, we sure are we glad to see you! Earlier this week, mother nature cut us a little break. Although the temperatures were still arctic, the skies were clear and blue and the sun was shining was like crazy. We don't get a lot of that sunshine stuff during the winter here in Chicago. So we took full advantage! Claire and I met up for coffee at our favorite spot in the city, !Bang Bang! Pie Shop, and feasted on southern style grits, (vegetarian!) biscuits and gravy, and Nutella cheese cake. Not a bad way to celebrate a random sunny Monday.
If you're a local and you've yet to visit Bang Bang, you need to. Like, today. Maybe right now! And if you're from out of town, definitely put it on your list of musts for your next visit to Chicago. Its just that charming!

Sometimes all that is needed to remind yourself that winter won't really last forever and maybe spring really is right around the corner, is a coffee date with a friend and a walk around the neighborhood with the sun shining in your face. Don't you agree?
