V: Oh So Lucky Charms

This past week, I took Thursday off to have a lunch date downtown with my boyfriend.

It might not sound like much, given that I’ve called Chicago home for the past few years and literally just had a date night at Navy Pier. But the occasion did stand for something. I walked away from a busy workload and approached the day with an open mind and no plans. It was just the small dose of adventure I needed to remember to stop and enjoy the moment.

Sometimes it’s nice to remind ourselves how fortunate we are for the little things. Don’t forget to stop and be grateful today and maybe, just maybe, have a little bit of an adventure!
