i started this blog in 2010 as a place to store thought-provoking quotes and not-awful images i managed to capture with my camera. time led to more words - my own this time - and various attempts at regular posts, and then to no posts at all for a while.
now we're living in chicago, and when we have time, exploring the coffee shops in different neighborhoods. this seemed like the best place to share this particular adventure, because it remains true to the blog's original purpose of reminding me to focus on discrete moments, to savor life - to aim for the moon, but to remember to also marvel at the flowers blossoming at my feet.
