Starting off the week with another beautiful sunrise. Not a lot of clouds this morning, just a brisk breeze & plenty of open road… err, lakefront bike trails!!!

So excited to have warm overnight temperatures last night, so this morning’s ride was surprisingly warm & comfortable too. Sure, the clouds weren’t overly dramatic this morning… but it felt great to be back on my bike without so many warm layers, gloves or even rain gear!!!

Magical morning moments along the lake. Sunrise streaming through dandelion seeds. Take time to appreciate the smaller moments of your day.

Crisp & clear… a nice change from the balmy heatwave we had over the weekend. Not a lot of clouds this morning, but we did get a nice sunrise “reveal.”

An early start… a beautiful sunrise… a perfect day for a road trip!
Here I come Central Illinois… with a car full of pottery!

Early morning breezes blowing in from the south… still a bit chilly, but hoping that we get the warm temps today as they’ve predicted!!! If so… I might just “have to” get out on my bike again for a few more miles this afternoon!

Warm & humid…
a quiet & cloudy start to the day before the rain coming in later!

After yesterday’s sun & warmth… it’s kinda feeling like Spring may have finally found its way to Chicago?! This morning was markedly warmer & drier than it has been the past few weeks. So it felt great to be back out enjoying the best way to start my day!

I knew it would be in there somewhere… Lots of clouds blowing through this morning shrouding the horizon. But the sun finally worked its way through the thickness… moments before a big wavy of chilly fog moved in!
