the month of travel continues.. our trip to the windy city!

10.28.2013

ooh hey chicago. you were quite fun.for our third weekend away chad and i headed down to the windy city to spend some time walking around and hanging out with family. chicago is one of my favorite towns around. i love the midwest feel in the big ol' city. i think i could live there( while chad doesn't think he could) but i just love the big city that still feels home-y.
**you always got to go see the bean right? this is one of my favorite sights in the town. it may be one of my favorite sights purely because it is filled with tourist and you see everyone snapping photos of the bean. it is pretty comical! also, our hockey team team,the wild, was playing against the chicago blackhawks the saturday we were there. it was so fun seeing some minnesotans cheering on our team!**
**after exploring the city chad and i ventured out to some of the neighborhoods. we had never done this before but i loved it. and actually i didn't feel like we got enough time seeing the neighborhoods so we are planning on going back soon to do some more exploring. the photo above was at a cute coffee/ bicycle shop called heritage cycles. we had heard so much about this place and we loved it. if you know anything about us, we are big fans of coffee.. and bicycles.**


we ended our trip with visiting a vintage shop called midnorth mercantile where i picked up the cutest vintage scarf. after our day in the city we headed up to the chicago suburbs to hang out and spend some quality time with extended family. the weekend was a busy one (as all of the weekends in october have been) but i am feeling so blessed by all of the travel and exploring i have been able to do. you learn so much by getting out of your routine and looking for something new..

chicago, we will be back for you soon! next up.. denver!

  6. I've not been to the US for a few years now and I'm thinking of visiting a bigger city like Chicago next year. I'd hate to drive in the US ("wrong" side of the road and all that ;) ) so somewhere like here would be ideal for me!
