A Fall Weekend In Photos

After a whirlwind weekend away in New York it was great to enjoy a quiet[er] weekend here in our home city with very few plans.  Like any good fall weekend, the sun was shining and there was a chill in the air so we put on our layers and headed outside.  Alex will be running a half marathon in Los Angeles later this month so he started off his Saturday with a 9-mile run while I began mine with 2 cups of coffee and a few blog updates.  Perfect.

We did a little fall decorating to keep things festive...

All bundled up for the Printers Row farmers market

On Saturday afternoon we ventured down to Printers Row to check out their neighborhood farmers market.  It's no Green City Market (think 5 vendor tents instead of 30), but it was quiet, closer, and we came back with plenty of good stuff.

Our farmers market haul: it wasn't just produce!

On Saturday night I joined my friend Maggie for an evening of catching up and carbohydrates at Via Carducci in Lincoln Park.

On Sunday Maggie ran the Chicago Marathon so we bundled up to go out and cheer her on.  I'm used to running around alone and waiting for Alex to run by during these races so it was nice to have him in my cheering squad this time around.  Check out his creative sign, which seemed to amuse all of the runners.

Even though it was super cold and it was her first marathon, Maggie did an awesome job.  Her spirits were high and when we caught up with her on Sunday night she hadn't even napped yet.  Congratulations to you, Maggie-- what an amazing accomplishment!

Run Maggie run!

I hope you had a great few days as well.  What did you do to stay busy this fall weekend?
