I used to travel a lot back in the day, and I would take photos of each destination and post them up here on the blog. I think I’m going to start doing that more. It’ll be a 2014 goal of mine – take more portraits and landscape/city photos. Being back in Philly, I dove right into work but I’ll always miss Chicago and my family over there! Here are a few snapshots of my little adventure with my sister-in-law in downtown Chicago this past Monday (hooray for rental cars!). Shoutout to my blogger friend from Philly-now-Chicago Dalia of, who we had the pleasure of seeing over some delicious lunch! Hope you enjoy the photos and I’ll try and keep you all posted on more of my travel adventures, whether they’re far or near to me!

  • My boyfriend always says we should go to Chicago. I’m rather resistant, as it seems like “just another big city”. How is it there, really?

      Hhhmm well it’s definitely a pretty city with a beach, museums, shopping, high rises, etc. I think you and your bf should take a couple trip here and enjoy the delicious food and sightseeing! Come in the summer too!

  • Great job!

      Thanks bubba!
