The Wonderful Windy City


Adam and I spent most of the week working in Chicago. I grew up in Illinois and despite visiting cities like New York City and London – Chicago is still my favorite. It’s where my family and friends are – the ones closest to my heart. Oh and the Bulls (go Scottie Pippen!).

Some highlights:

  • Cold, brisk walks downtown while the city is decorated for Christmas
  • Eating at Xoco and drinking coffee from Intellegentsia.
  • Quality time with my brother
  • Holding my best friend’s second child for the first time
  • Drinking too much wine
  • Realizing that I can work from anywhere…and dreaming of our next trip!

It made the week fly by and it’s already Friday! I plan to catch up on work before the holidays, celebrate a friend’s birthday, bake Christmas cookies with my friends and finish up my shopping for the Christmas City Swap! Do you have any plans?

Oh and congrats to Rebecca Odell for winning a $25 giftcard to Nurtur Grandview giveaway! Thanks to all who entered!
