A few weeks ago, MR & I went back to Chicago for his cousin's wedding. This was my second time there and there wasn't as much urgency to do the Chicago tourist thing, so we just kind of let the wind take us where it wanted and had a grand ol' time!
Fun fact: I used to collect water globes when I was a kiddo! My heart still pitter patters for them, from pure nostalgia. As I grew older I realized collections have to end somewhere because eventually it becomes hoarding & woof, I'm not down with that. I only believe in collecting love now :)
Classic cheesy diner pic! Sharing a coke at a greek diner we stumbled upon at lunch time one afternoon.

We came upon this old storefront in Lincoln Park when hunting down a burger joint we saw on Travel Channel last year. [I'll detail that in another post!] I loved the vintage signage!
And, of course, our reason for visiting Chicago! MR's seriously adorable cousin got hitched!
I loved that she kept her natural curls for her big day!
Unfortunately on our last day there, MR caught the stomach bug and was down for the count, so I played lots of solitaire while my sicky-poo slept. Poor guy! Besides that little hickup, the trip was great! It was fun to see Chicago in the Summer since we were their for the Fall last time. Next time we'd like to go for winter! We'll see if our southern blood can handle it ;)
