Chicago, 2009

Christian and I had the great fortune of spending the past weekend in Chicago. Mom took care of La Luz and James, Loki checked in at the local doggy daycare, and Christian and I were on our own for the first time in a long time.

The weekend was incredible. I love what I got to see of Chicago - a Cubs game, the architecture tour on the river, strolls through random gardens and parks, a lovely run ending on a bridge with a perfect view of Soldier Field, drinks in the lobby of The Palmer House, dinner at Avec - but I know I barely scratched the surface. I had no idea that Chicago looks like this:

And then there are all sorts of things like this:

just there for the public to enjoy.

Here I am at Wrigley:

and at Avec with Josh:

Baker and Christian, waiting to be seated, indulging my desire to eat at Avec at whatever cost:

I can't wait to plan my next visit.
