I'm not sure what got me thinking about the summer of 2009 recently, but as my last 12 days of summer 2009 happened this time five years ago, I got inspired to share it here on a blog. Somehow I never did share those photos here because back then I mostly stuck to sharing beads, jewelry, and Etsy related matters. So here we go.
I spent the last 12 days of the summer of 2009 before the 09-10 school year started (I was teaching back then, remember?) traveling over 1,100 miles for some family happenings and a college friend's wedding. It's one of the last times that I got to visit my undergrad campus and one of the longest periods that I've spent in Chicago during the past decade. It was also the most time that I ever spent driving by myself in a two week period.
What were you doing during the summer of 2009?
