Last week, I was on vacation from work. From 7:30 p.m. Friday to 4:30 p.m. Monday, I was a free woman. I usually try to take my birthday week off, to attend an annual music festival in Chicago, or to just roam the streets wild. This year, I really outdid myself. I did so much stuff. So much, that I had to comb through texts and my Facebook feed to remember just what happened, and when. There were friends by the gross, music, great food, art, swimming, kayaking, comedy and Internet memes - all of my favorite things. I couldn't have had a better week.
