Yesterday, I planed-trained-and-automobiled myself from Brooklyn to my hometown in central Illinois. I’m staying with my folks for a few days before heading up to Chicago for the bachelorette party of one of my best friends. I’m so happy to be back home in Illinois that I just couldn’t muster any enthusiasm for anywhere exotic, and so I present (part of) my folks’ backyard
Look at all that greenery. There’s no place like home.
