What Happened to Spring? – Weekend Recap

Judging from my current view, you wouldn’t be able to guess that it was March 23rd and officially spring time in Chicago. Needless to say it was a rough wake up and a rough commute into my office this morning. Even though it’s a snowy, less than ideal Monday, I’m still riding my weekend high […]
