works cited: most comfortable dress ever c/o five bamboo; necklace that blends into my skin from macy's; enormous floral wedges c/o ruche
This last weekend, Christopher and I took a few days off, left our laptops at home and spent some time wandering around Chicago together to celebrate C's defended dissertation. I wore this on the drive there, because there is nothing like a soft dress for a roadtrip. A quick scary story about our drive to Chicago: when we left town, it was bright and sunny and as we drove along the highway, we saw humongous black clouds in the distance. As we got closer to the dark bank of clouds, we saw a funnel cloud and a tornado start to form on the side of the highway, a mere 100 yards from our car! It looked a lot like this and the funnel was rotating like crazy (meanwhile, I was hyperventilating). Even though we saw that cloud start to dissipate, we still drove like the dickens away from it down the highway until it started to pour and hail so heavily that we couldn't see. We pulled over near an overpass and waited it out (my heart was beating so fast as the hail pelted the car). Luckily, the storm passed over us in just a few minutes and we drove on without a problem, but it was a wicked scary moment! I know we're incredibly fortunate compared to so many people in North Carolina and Alabama right now--I can't imagine how terrifying it must have been.
