I had an enjoyable day once I got out of work. I headed to the Chicago French Market that has multiple vendors inside this really large building. It had everything you could imagine. John and I enjoyed these delicious Belgian Frites served to us inside of a cone with a cold brew. I also picked up a red velvet cupcake, which I am too full to eat. The girls and I picked up free samples of this lemongrass soap from one of the vendors. There was also a raw foods vendor that had everything you could imagine. If I had enough money, I'm sure I would've picked something up. I'm not too big on raw and vegan foods, but I am always willing to try. What can I say, I love to cook and I find it incredibly soothing, especially after a long day. Nothing better than chopping up vegetables and throwing it into a pan with spices and other goodness. It pleases all of my senses. Afterwards, we headed home. I feel like I need to take a nap if I want to enjoy the rest of the night. It kinda sucks having to open at work back to back.

I do know I will be heading to the French Market very, very soon. Especially for the cheeses! Gosh, there were so many. I love my stinky cheeses.

Today is my first day back at work at the new store. I'm kind of dreading it, but at the same time, I'm excited. I'm taking on quite a lot of hours, so this is going to take some getting used to. I also have a few late hours, which I'm not too pleased with, but I guess it can't be that bad.

Oi, I hope everything goes well.

Last night, Dennis and Whitney visited our place. We also went to Whole Foods to pick up a few things. Dennis was able to convince Whitney (straightedge) to drink wine without sulfites in it. Later on we went to this bar on the west side where a local band was playing. We ran into a lot of people that we know and also saw John's sister there who has been in South Carolina for a few months. People seem to be excited for us. It's a nice feeling.

Day Seven (365 Day Project)



I am obsessed with the French. I took French for 4 years in high school and grew a significant amount of love of their culture and language. I was supposed to visit France in my senior year of high school and live with a French family for a week, but because of the war, we were not allowed to go; principal's orders! I was completely devastated and decided to travel to France one day later on in my life. I would love to leave this country for a good month and spend it backpacking through Europe.

I could just imagine myself living a life of wearing couture gowns and sipping espresso and drinking wine in the afternoon with a decadent lunch.

I wish I were French!
