I spent this past weekend in the lovely city of Chicago. I'd never been before, so it was quite an experience. Between viewing the skyline, shopping down the Magnificent Mile, and visiting the Bean in Millennium Park, I'd say the trip was wonderful. Here are a few snapshots from the weekend.
The Bean - A marriage proposal happened at the same time we were there - it was quite exciting and incredibly adorable!
The Chicago skyline - This photo does not do this sight justice in the slightest. It was so enchanting to see the entire skyline across Lake Michigan.
The Chicago Art Institute - If you didn't know, I have a thing for Monet's work. This museum had around 20 or 25 Monet originals, including the famous Lilly Pads! They were incredible to see in person.
The Magnificent Mile - If you've never been, think of it as a toned down Madison Avenue. The shops were lovley, as were these Macarons from an adorable spot called Argo Cafe!
Shake Shack - I've realized it's quite impossible to see a Shake Shack and not stop for lunch.
The view from our hotel - I couldn't believe how much of the city we could see! Everything was gorgeous at night. I only wish I'd captured a picture at sunrise.
