I may live in Southern Illinois now, and I may only be from Central Illinois, but I think I've always secretly been a Chicago girl at heart. When thinking how we wanted to celebrate my birthday, Joe and I decided that a weekend trip to Chicago would be just what the doctor ordered. We had a lovely time seeing some of the city, eating, and hanging out with sea-life.
We stayed at the most lovely and unique Airbnb in Historic Pullman. We had the best host and it was a great place to stay.
I hadn't been to Shedd Aquarium in years and I thought it would be fun to walk around see the different water creatures.
We took a walk along Lake Michigan to Navy Pier and it was beautiful! Check out that good looking guy :)
We then took a boat architecture tour, which I highly recommend! It was a great way to see the city and learn about the history of it!
We enjoyed a lovely dinner and had an early bedtime, which is probably the best gift ever. It was way too short lived though! I can't wait for the next opportunity we have to visit Chicago.
