a little more chicago

Here are some more random pics from Chicago…I figured your could see architecture pictures almost anywhere, so I kept them fairly personal!
David and I went on some early morning walks, spotting deer and every so often, a very special man who ran barefoot.

At the bar before meeting David’s co-workers, who were so much fun! It was so nice to put faces to the names of the people David spends every week in Chicago with.  I figured showcasing my earrings was super important…also my lambic.

Here we are at the Ravinia Festival, where we watched Lord of the Rings on a huge screen outdoors while a choir sang and the Chicago symphony played.  It was so gorgeous outside, which kinda made up for how long Lord of the Rings is.

We did venture into Chicago (see our lovely hotel here).  First up, this is me at “The Bean”

This is David’s “Zoolander” face…he might not appreciate this- but we are here to entertain you!

While wandering around, a little lost, I found these trees. I liked them…not sure what they are about, but they put me in a fall mood.


  1. perfect snap of the deer! and those trees? crazy.

  4. You are so cute!!! Love the earrings. And you know what, I actually love LOTR! That sounds awesome to me. ;o)

    • Aw, you are so sweet! Thank you. Oh, LOTR is not bad…but when I shared an apartment with David and his bro it was on TV all the time, and I think I just burned out on it. It was really cool though, such a nice night and the music/choir was seamless. xoxo
