travel bug: chicago

sorry for the break in posts, T and i went with my parents last week to visit family in chicago and since we've been back, have been a bit busy playing catch-up...but, i suppose that's what taking a week long vacation will do to ya! plus, the pups have been nothing short of expressive in their complaints about us not taking them with ;)

not only is chicago one of my favorite cities to visit but, i seriously adore spending time with my family up there. it was a great week filled with lots of amazing sights, sounds, people, and food. so, without further ado, enjoy!
