Chicago adventures: day one

I went to visit the city of Chicago last Monday and Tuesday because my friend Emily is leaving for Philadelphia soon and I have no idea when I'll get to see her again. I also met up with my friend Abby Taylor and Lauren Blakeman along the way. We had a great time and I really enjoyed the getaway so much! I can't wait to go back again. Here are the photos from the first day only...... .

I don't usually swoon over food, bu that second pic... nom, nom, nom.

I spotted the hydrangeas immediately. Have I ever told you that I love them too? I am such a nerd when it comes to them, I get so excited about the different shades...

I have a tattoo design that is floral Roses, and hydrangeas, mostly, and kittke birds... it is really big and I am going to get it ... one day.
