The best 4th of July weekend

No, it's not because of barbecues and all the yummy food. It's not because of fireworks. Or a beach trip. 

This year was very different than last year. In Chicago, Mr. L and I went kayaking on Lake Michigan, and ate at the boat house and hung out by North Street Beach. It was a lot of fun and our last big weekend in Chicago before moving back to NY. 

Fast forward to this past weekend and it couldn't have been more amazing. And we didn't even go out. It was just the two three of us hanging out as a little family. Because on Wednesday, June 29, I gave birth to the most precious human I have ever met. My life feels like it has so much more meaning and true purpose. I can't even put into words how I feel about him because the immense love I feel is completely unsurmountable. 

Life has never been better.
