For O We’re Off to Outside


On Saturday, I wrote about how, despite the gorgeous weather, I wanted to stay inside and devour the new season of Kimmy Schmidt.

Well, I didn’t.

I actually went…outside. And it was beautiful. Don’t worry, I caught up with Kimmy on Sunday, which was equally beautiful (both the catching up and the day), but I’d already been outside once, I mean what more could the world want?!

Anyhow, I went to the stunning  Chicago Botanic Garden, where I had some fun with my camera. As proof of my outside-itude, here are a few of the pictures. Outside can be lovely. It just doesn’t have a lot of TVs.

  1. I’ve never been to the Chicago Botanical Garden, but can see that I’d love it. I know what you mean about wanting to be outside this last weekend. Spring has arrived here early and I’m thrilled by it. Forget TV, I say.

    • Thanks so much! I’ve followed you back (though I hope it will work, since you’re blogger). Hmm, at least I can find you!

      I’ve just finished season 2 and I ADORED it.

      And thanks on the photos…that blue gate is in the English walled garden, which is one of my absolute favorite places there 🙂
