We are back in California after a whirlwind trip to Illinois. Whew!
Stone and I flew into Chicago last weekend and we were able to do a little bit of sightseeing before heading to the small farm town Yorkville to shoot a wedding. We had an incredible time. I think we have mastered the art of mixing business with pleasure and feel so blessed to have been able to travel to new and fun locations together for our job!
Yes, we paid the $19 parking fee in order to go see Millennium Park. Husband was not too thrilled, but we both agreed after getting to see the bean, the beautiful gardens, amphitheater, and Chicago Art Institute that it was well worth it.
I know. We were among dozens of tourists taking photos in front of this famous sculpture, but we had to do it :)
We could have spent days and days discovering this city, unfortunately we only had hours, but I have to say the famous Michigan Avenue looked just as impressive as everyone claims it to be. Loved it.
One of our favorite shops that we popped into was in an area called Wicker Park. Penelope's has amazing clothing for guys and girl, if you ever make it to Chicago I definitely recommend it!
Our first pizza in Chicago was from a restaurant in Wicker Park called Crust. It was delicious, but not quite as authentic as Gino's East, which we had later on in the weekend.
