On Saturday morning I took a 7am flight back to Houston for the weekend. (All because I didn’t want to miss out on the Excelerate Labs trip to Whirlyball, ha!) Since it was super early and because the friendly people at GM have loaned me a car for a bit (more on this later!) I decided to drive myself to the airport. And let me tell you, whizzing driving safely down a nearly empty Lake Shore Drive while the sun comes up over Lake Michigan and illuminates the city is a beautiful way to start the day.
