the windy city part 1

Chicago was incredible. We managed to squeeze in a lot in a few days, and I'm already thinking we'll be back next year to check out the museums. We tried two different pizza joints in the city: Gino's East and Lou Malnati's. I have to admit, I liked Lou's better! I also loved Ed Debevic's, a '50s-style diner where the waiters "act" rude and smartass-y towards the customers. Our waiter "Popcorn" wasn't all that rude...more funny than anything. I'm a sucker for diners and diner food, what can I say.

More photos to come soon...I've been crazy busy since getting back and it's only going to get busier well into the holidays! Glad we were lucky enough to take a few days off with some good friends. I love taking actual vacations.

Currently listening to: Fleet Foxes- "Mykonos"
