Turned around this week and jumped back on a plane - this time to Chicago for work. I loooove Chicago. Everything from the layout of the city to the people, the shopping to the restaurants. Not to mention the amazing family and friends I have there!
The first evening I was able to meet up with my cousin and had an amazing time catching up over some awesome Thai food. I couldn't remember the last time I got to sit and hang out with her one on one for hours - probably never! But something that definitely needs to happen more often!
Fast forward through two full days of meetings (ok, and an itty bit of shopping mixed in-hello H&M!) and I got to finish off my trip meeting up with a fellow blogger, miss Meghan from The Perfect Compilation Tape! We had coffee and wandered around downtown, it was fabulous to get to know her and get dorky 'talking blog'. I think for both of us - and probably for a lot of bloggers - you really don't know that many people in your 'real life' that blog. So it's very surreal to suddenly have someone sitting there that gets this little habit.

Your pictures are marvelous!!!

And thank you so much once again for hanging out with me! I had such a great time and you are so right - it was surreal to talk to someone who knows what it's like to blog:) And on top of that, you're just an awesome person. Hope your weekend is lovely!

I LOVE these photos! I REALLY want to go to Chicago, but I've never been!!

I love that you met a fellow blogger! That is so fun! I'm so lucky that my best friend also blogs, so she gets it! Our sig others are a different story! They say they are allowed to pull out the video games anytime we even mention the word "blog".

Have a great weekend, dear! xo
