Chicago and the Heat Wave

I am pretty sure this post will break my record for most pictures posted at once. I just can’t help it. Chicago is a beautiful city, and I spent four full days there (not counting the days I traveled to get to and from), so there are bound to be a TON of pictures. Choosing the ones for this post was no easy task.

If I had to make a list of Chicago recommendations it might look something like this:

the wormhole (I recommend the ice chai latte- I may have gotten it four mornings in a row…maybe) it’s located near wicker park.

myopic books— I have never seen so many books in my life at one place, the kindle has not taken over yet!

the bean— I don’t care how touristy it is, I LOVED IT. I have been to Chicago so many times and I cannot believe I have never been to THE BEAN. you have your fill after about five minutes, but whatever- it’s cool.

every wednesday night there is a free concert in millennium park, WHAT? Eric, Christina, and I got to hear the orchestra practice on Tuesday. music rejuvinates my soul.

the art institute of chicago— now this place I have been to before, but it is always amazing, and this time around we got to see the roy lichtenstein exhibit.

lincoln park zoo— mainly because IT’S FREE! Christina and I were look for fun cheap places to go to take pictures and the zoo was great. Though we are not much for looking at animals in cages, the scenery was beautiful.

greek island restaurant in greek town— basically because the fire cheese is so fun, and actually really, really delicious.

and of course, deep dish pizza! Eric took us to Gino’s East. so tasty.



oh my dear wormhole, I will miss those ice chai lattes with all my heart…
