Chicago Pride Parade
Hey y’all. It’s been so long since I’ve posted that I’ve practically forgotten how to do it. By now, you know my stance; I love blogging, but if it’s a choice of staying inside to draft a post or being out and about, I’ll always choose real life! I do plan to write more in the upcoming weeks, but if you’d like to keep up with me between posts, please follow me on Twitter and Instagram!
We’ll start back up again with a simple post; more of a photo essay. Yesterday was Chicago’s Pride Parade. I’ve been to the parade in New York, but this was my first one in Chicago.

Lots of fun floats, and good music too.
A great way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and a great day for love and equality!
