A Taste of Spring & Visiting Chicago

Yesterday I took the train up north to Chicago for the day for an interview with the Goodman Theatre or a Costume Design internship. They'll get back to me this week with their decision, but either way... I feel proud of myself for landing the interview and being back in the city, again. It went really well and I loved touring the Goodman Theatre Costume Shop and meeting everyone! I have to admit that moving to New York City in August 2013 was a lot for me to handle and very outside of my comfort zone. It felt great to be back in the city again... even if it wasn't New York City :) 
*EDIT* I just accepted the paid position and I'm moving to Chicago early next month!
My mother and I brunched at this cute place near Union Station called Lou Mitchell's and we loved it! She had eggs benedict with salmon and I had the florentine.  
I had a little taste of New York City while in Chicago.... Magnolia Bakery Banana Pudding... I was so thrilled Magnolia had come to Chicago! Thanks to Nathan Adhikari for sharing some pudding with me and showing my mom and I around Chicago for the day! We loved it!
Until we meet again, Chicago!
love, polly

Oh I hope you get this internship! These photos are wonderful, I love seeing what you get up to <3

I also relate so much to the whole NYC comfort zone thing..But Chicago seems like a wonderful city <3
