After a family lifestyle session in the city this past weekend my husband and I realized it was Midsommarfest weekend in our old neighborhood. We seriously have probably been to at least 10 MSF's and of course I squealed with glee and was determined to walk the streets and check out ALL THE THINGS & CHAOS at MSF 2016. I just love Chicago folks. And the heart and soul of the city in not in the beautiful skyline (although...seriously it is rad) but in my opinion it is the neighborhoods. The neighborhoods are so distinctive and yet at the same time all Chicago. They neighborhoods are constantly in the tension of remembering their history and embracing their future. I captured a bit of the festival, the street life, and the contrast between the Swedish heritage of the neighborhood with the changing demographic. A-ville you are always in my heart. Happy summer in Chicago!!
