Chicago in the Spring - Weekend Recap in Pictures

Bookmark and Share

We don't get a lot of Spring-time weather in Chicago, so when we do, I like to make the most of it.

Here are a few photos of Chicago on a sunny and mild weekend in May.

Yellow tulips on Michigan Avenue + my yellow manicure 

Saturday afternoon I got a manicure and then I realized that my manicure matched the tulips on Michigan Avenue! Naturally, I had to capture that. I posted a better shot on IG for all those "nail art" lovers - whoever they are.

Chicago Parks are the best!

I was walking through the park and boom! there it was - that beautiful old condo building on North Avenue. I find myself in awe every time I look at this building, it is so elegant. It stands apart from any other building in the city - at least that's how I feel about it. Sadly, the photo I posted on Instagram didn't get the love it deserved :(  

Lake Michigan in May - Chicago in the Spring

I took a long walk along the beach. I was sitting here contemplating the complexities of life (like Snapchat filters), I was splashed by an unruly wave. I clumsily jumped up to save my camera and my phone -- both sitting on the concrete beside me.

Now that we're onto Snapchat filters...

P.S., I'm "Luluinatutu" on Snapchat. Luluinatutu is an odd choice for a username since it is the only time I've used this name since it was my original Twitter handle back in '08! 

Perfect Spring day in Chicago - or is it? 

See what I did here? I ruined the perfect day by adding in a tornado. The best part about Snapchat is that you can revert back to your15-year-old self, make stupid jokes, and no one cares. 

Final favorite from the weekend in pictures - a gif! 

Psychedelic Work Out 

I was bored, so I made a gif. I still on the lakefront, near Fullerton, sitting on the new landing area. There was a guy to my left who was exercising, running / leaping up and down the steps. He had been doing it for a while, so it's not really fair to him, he was much faster at first, and I had some fun with it. 

There you have it. May Spring Weekend in Chicago.
