2007: Four years ago, I had just finished up a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah for a Curriculum Mapping conference. I was eager to get home to read the last Harry Potter book that had recently been released.
2006: Five years ago we were in the middle of our trip to Europe. That evening we were hanging out in Rome, Italy enjoying the cooler evening temperatures, and we took a walk to the Trevi fountain.
2005: Six years ago I had just returned to Chicago after a month in San Francisco attending a science workshop at the Exploratorium. I went to Chicago Cycle that day to look at motorcycle gear and spotted this bike in the parking lot. I was missing my love who was in Korea, not just for the summer, but for the year.
2004: Seven years ago, I had just returned from a 2 week Forensic Science workshop that I took at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. I was happy to be back in Chicago with my sweetie.
2003: Eight years ago, I was in Bryan, Ohio visiting my parents. Here's my dad in between playing the piano during Sunday mass. This was a few days after seeing the Black Eyed Peas perform at Hard Rock in Chicago. It was our first summer together since we re-connected.
