Late Wednesday night Jamie and I returned from a much needed vacation in Chicago. We had bizarre weather (sunshine, snow, wind, rain- the works), enjoyed the company of dear friends, enjoyed great food and well just plain relaxed- it was amazing!! We enjoyed all every minute of our trip and were envious of all of the culture and the sites that you get to see in Chicago- Orlando is really lacking. We even enjoyed the 6 inches of snow that we got- you can enjoy it when you don’t live in it. Enjoy the pictures, some of which are self portraits- the product of a vacation with just the two of us.

The Bean- my favorite site in all of Chicago!!! A huge mirrored bean in the middle of Millennium Park. It was a great place to people watch and made for great pictures of the city.
Me and Jamie at the Bean
New, warm, pink (shock) hat- for snow, wind etc.

Chicago Deep dish, Jamie ate 4 slices of a large on his own
Me and Father Scott outside of the Mercy Home where he works- an amazing organization that fosters really needy (deserving) kids
Beautiful background, beautiful day, handsome husband
