Chicago

I had the opportunity to finally visit a city I had been wanting to visit for years this past fall. And it far from disappointed. This whole trip came about in 2013 when my best friend and I were sitting in a coffee shop some night in December and decided to write down all the things we wanted to do and places we wanted to see in 2014. "Chicago" was my immediate response. Hers, naturally was, "I'll go with you". Fast forward a few months and there we were, falling in love with that very city every second we spent there. It was one of the best trips I had ever experienced with one of my most favorite friends, more like a sister. It was a revelation to me that we worked to make this happen and indulge in our adventure-seeking, traveling desires together. The apartment we stayed in was in the prime Chicago downtown area with absolute breathtaking views of the city. Waking up to that in the morning is still the sweetest memory. From watching from high above to turning strangers into friends, Chicago stole my heart. And I can't wait to go back for Round Two. I think we get comfortable and hesitant far too may times in life, and sometimes, we need to just...GO.
