Wishing you a happy Memorial Day weekend! It's feeling more and more like summer in Chicago, which is another major reason to celebrate. (Hellooo, sunny and 90°.) One of the best parts of summer, in my opinion, is that there's simply so much do — from festivals and concerts to weekend getaways. I was excited to kick-off summer festival season earlier this week with music in Grant Park with Tennessee Vacation. Perhaps you might not know (or would have guessed), but I like my fair share of country music — especially in the summer. Listening to artists straight from Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville was a perfect way to get in the spirit for Memorial Day weekend and welcome the new season. It's safe to say Tennessee is top on my list of places to travel to next... I imagine a weekend filled with good music, BBQ, browsing local boutiques, and exploring the Appalachian Trail. Who's in?
P.S. Fun fact: This flag was the one used during our first year on our sailboat 'Old Glory', back in summer of 2011.
