/ / One:
Chris officially started intern year this week! After all these years and the last few months of preparing for our move and his new job, it’s crazy that he is officially working as a doctor. He spent the last two weeks in orientation, so he was definitely ready to work.
/ / Two:
Speaking of residency, Chris gets one day off a week, so I am trying to plan fun activities in Chicago. This week his day off is Sunday, and I’m really hoping to make it to the beach.

I have really enjoyed participating in the Literary Ladies Reading Challenge so far! Now that I have more time to myself, I love using it to read. So far, I have read three out of the ten books for the challenge.
/ / Four:
Now that we have lived in Chicago for almost a month (what?!), I’m starting to put together a bucket list for our year here. If you have been to Chicago and have suggestions, send them my way!
/ / Five:
Chris gets vacation in two-week blocks. One block is in September, and the other block is in June to help us move back to Dallas. I am hoping to plan a fun road trip for us. My ambitious idea is to drive from Chicago to Quebec City, stopping in Toronto, Montreal, and Niagara Falls, with a day in Maine on the way back. I’m worried this might be too much for Chris since I want it to be relaxing, so other ideas of places to visit are appreciated!
Thank you for participating in my brain dump today, friends. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
