Weekend in Chicago.

    A couple months ago my friend Amanda and I came up with the idea that we needed a little get away and since Chicago is relativity close to us and a really fun city with so much to see and do well that seemed like a great to place to head to for a couple of days. We made plans to stay in the suburbs and then take the train into the city. I've done that in the past and I didn't remember it being so complicated. But somehow this time around it didn't end up being as easy as I thought it would be. Transportation around the city ended up being a small nightmare and we both decided we like our small towns that we can get around in easily. 

We had such a great relaxing time. Coffee shops, books and lazy mornings where some of my favorites! 

    And shopping. The 2nd largest mall happened to be just a mile from our hotel so we of course spent lots of time there. And they had some of my favorite stores, like Anthropologie and H&M. Its maybe a good thing I don't have either of those very close to my house?!
        I left feeling so encouraged and refreshed by our little getaway weekend. And also I am so thankful for a husband who encourages me to do these kinds of things. I am so blessed!

 Happy Friday!


  1. I love Chicago! I went to college in a small suburb outside the city and we would take the train downtown on the weekends! I miss it so much now- I am glad you got to go spend some fun time with your friend!

  2. So jealous! I need to get there again soon!
