The Windy City

So my husband and I recently took one of our spur-of-the-moment weekends trips - but this time we decided to shake things up a bit and explore a place on the other side of the border... Chicago!

At first I was concerned that we were trying to fit way too much into a short period of time (when you take out the 7 hour driving time, we were left with around a day and a half). Turns out we had more than enough time to get a taste for everything Chicago has to offer - and we were blessed with incredible weather too!

We left early Saturday morning and hit the road - pulled into Chicago around noon. Once we settled into our apartment, about 30 minutes outside the city (much cheaper that way), we drove into the downtown core to explore a bit. Here are a few photos from our experience:
