Earth Hour

So it's been a while! Sorry, not much post-worthy going on, but I thought this was worth writing about:

Tonight, please turn your lights off from 8:30 - 9:30pm for Earth Hour:

"This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard."

6 months

Tomorrow it will be 6 months since we loaded all of our stuff up into a trailer and drove from NYC to Chicago. It's been an amazing 6 months, and there's never been a minute where I've regretted our decision to come here. I look forward to many, many more months and years in this wonderful city with my wonderful partner in crime.

Above is a photo from last night in the Hancock Building's Signature Lounge. We met up with Mike's friend Kristen from college and her friends and had an awesome time. And FYI - the view from the ladies room is even better.
