I'm back!

Hello friends! I'm back! Did you miss me? I know it gets pretty quiet around here when I'm out and about, but our vacation to Chicago was much needed. I needed to get away from work for a bit, decompress, wander around in awe in a place I'd never been before, and eat way too much good food. I'm happy to report, all of those missions were completed! I'm back, and feeling a million times better than I was before I left.

We spent 9 days away from home, and 5 of those traipsing around Chicago and utilizing all manner of public transportation. We literally did everything touristy that there is to do! We took an architecture tour, visited The Bean, went to the aquarium, saw the Art Institute, and so many more things that it would take me an eon to explain them all to you. It was so much fun. This was only the second time we've ever left the bordering states of California, and I'm becoming addicted.

The hubs and I took a lot of photos, and of course shared our journey with our friends and family through Instagram! It was our first time being somewhere completely new for this long, and so we had ample time to fit in all the things that we wanted to do, like taking a jaunt to the top of the Willis (Sears) Tower, and even touring Wrigley Field!

All in all, it was an awesome trip. I got to get away from home, away from responsibilities, and away from stress for long enough to feel completely at ease again. The only downside? Hahaha. Totally missed my puppy child. How do you not miss a face like the one below? Needless to say, I was so ready to come home by the time our trip was over.

I'm back, and ready to blog again. I didn't get a whole lot of reading done while I was gone, for good reason, but not to worry because I have plenty of backlog material to write. Thanks for sticking with us, y'all. You're the best.
