I have a certain reoccurring urge. Mostly on mornings when I drive east on Highway 94 into Wisconsin. It's an easy stretch of road, opposite of rush hour traffic. But instead of getting off at my work exit, I want to keep driving until my surroundings are no longer so familiar.
Sometimes, I just have to go. Go, or go crazy. Before this week, I might have been on the verge of crazy. Perfect timing for a little vacation.
We love traveling with Girly Muse and her family and were so excited at the opportunity to road trip with them. After a couple ideas fell through, we settled on 3 nights in Chicago. Steve and I thoroughly enjoyed our December trip, so we couldn't wait to experience the Windy City with warm weather and in the company of our wonderful friends.
Pizza at Gino's. A little shopping. Church (like, crazy-awesome church) at Lighthouse. Mini-golf. A little more shopping. BBQ ribs (OMG). Navy Pier. Sears Tower. Char Dog. Millennium Park. Picasso Exhibition. Manny's Deli.
Loved every minute of it.
