Life just suprises you sometimes.

Just a few weeks ago Chicago was still locked in the throes of one of the most brutal winters I can remember. It felt like it was a year long. Frigid temps, piles of snow, eternal grey skies. Dead lawns, dead trees, crispy bushes, no color in sight.

Then out of nowhere, spring bursts on the scene. Rapidly, brown turns to green. Life is everywhere now. Up high on the old oaks, down low on the solid ground; there’s color. Everything just wakes up.

Is there anything more amazing?
