grey day away: Cosley Zoo & family outings

grey day away: Cosley Zoo Visit

Have always loved this sign; why no pink though? Missed opportunity there for sure.

I actually tend to like family outings with Veers more than most of our outings with just the two of us before we had her. I’m not talking about evening activities like concerts, bars, etc. obviously, but things like going for a walk or even just to the grocery store feel more fun with her.

grey day away: Lake Michigan

great lakes, Illinois, waves, black parka [] grey day away: Lake Michigan

Vera hearing waves crashing for the first time

We had planned on spending some time by the lake this past Saturday but almost gave in and stayed home because it was very close to freezing here (in May–whyyy?)

1. Outfit: comfy but flattering: You don’t want to be shivering, sweating, or have your limbs falling asleep while awaiting the new you–so you should wear something comfortable but also something you feel good in. I wouldn’t recommend your favorite outfit or anything though–especially if you’re getting color or texture treatments since small accidents with the salon chemicals do happen :/ Plus you’ll want something that’s easy to clean of a million tiny pieces of hair.
