Plans don’t always work out. When they get foiled it can seem like the end of the world. I planned on going to Chicago to see a great guy I met. In return for a place to stay while I was there, I was also going to photograph a friend of a friend’s experience of finding a dress in Filene’s Basement’s “Running of the Brides.” Things fell through with the guy at the last minute, taking my plans to square one. With that love lost, I found a different love instead. It’s name is Chicago. I hadn’t planned on loving a city so much. After all-I’m a country girl. Chicago is just…beautiful! The lake, the architecture, the variety of people and culture…I’m smitten. I’ll be back to see my new love.
