Here is a little picture tour of my weekend in Chicago.
I absolutely love the city and feel so at home every time I'm there.
First, here are some shots I took out the plane window.
And the reason I took that little plane ride...this sweet cupcake.
I arrived on Friday afternoon and my brother in law served us an amazing turkey dinner.
After the spoils, we headed to the town square for the cities tree lighting ceremony.
It honestly felt like a movie set- so idealistic and charming.
I was only there for one full day so we packed a lot of visiting into too short a trip.
Though we spent a lot of the weekend catching up (and shopping,) one of the highlights of my trip was a visit to the Chicago Botanical Gardens.
I'm not really a garden person but this place was absolutely breathtaking.
My sister and her family actually live in Lake Forest, a suburb of Chicago and it is one of the prettiest places I have been to in quite some time.
My trip was short but I loved every second of it.
Being an aunt is such a special thing and I hope my little niece knows how very much her auntie loves her.
In other news....
I'll be kicking off some holiday cheer tomorrow...Dec.1st is my official start date for all things Christmas.
