Chicago is glorious in the summer time - the water turns a special shade of blue as if in competition with the sky and the shores of Lake Michigan are perfect for relaxing. The city is lovely to walk around; it's pretty by day and even prettier by night as the lights of the buildings glimmer on every reflective surface possible - the dome of the Bean, the river and even puddles.
We managed to fit in an architecture tour, plenty of eating at Taste of Chicago, some bike riding, restaurant hopping and more sleep than I had managed the entire week before. All in all, a perfect weekend away... similar to our lovely trip last year!
From Chicago, with love xox
