A Simple Thank You

Best thing about today:
Right before I left work the phone rang and the caller asked if I was there. I had cut her hair a couple of days ago and she just wanted to call and tell me that she really loved her hair! So she was just calling to say thanks.

How sweet was that? Pretty much I love her and she made my day.

I am loving fall in Chicago. This picture doesn't do it justice, but the view from our apartment is amazing! How could I not be happy when I wake up to this?

I am dreaming of the day when I have one of these!
Seriously I spend so much time a day walking blocks to get to my car, then trying to find a parking spot, then attempting to parallel park, and then once again walking, searching, walking. It is a fun cycle that comes with living in a city. When we move I am most looking forward to having my very own place to put our car.

I'm also still enjoying one of the flowers Jared gave me over 2 weeks ago! The other three flowers that were in a separate vase all died within a week. This one still lives. Kind of odd, right? The only difference we can think of is the others had the special flower powder. Are florists purposely killing our flowers?
(Don't mind our little indulgence of ourselves. Maybe we should invest in some other decorations besides pictures of us.)

A Crazy Squirrel

This morning the strangest thing happened as Jared and I were walking to our car. A squirrel came running right for us. Usually it's the other way around right? They should be scared of us! But not this little guy. He ran right up to us and we even tried to move out of his way, but he was determined to get us. He was literally touching Jared's shoes and jeans. I was worried he was going to try to run up his pants. It was that bizarre. As it lingered by us we thought it might be hungry, so Jared pulled out some chocolate and he nibbled away at it. He let me get so close to him to take this picture on my phone. When he heard it take it, he looked up at me, but didn't run off. We started walking away and he ran after us. Jared ran and the squirrel just ran faster. I began to worry that he had rabies or something. We got away from the crazy squirrel, but it was very strange.

New Job

The best present I got on my birthday was a JOB! I actually ended up getting 3 offers which was a huge relief! I decided to work at a salon here in Hyde Park. I'm so grateful for this opportunity. It'll be so great to keep learning and get some experience. I'm still a little nervous, but I'm sure it'll get better.
