    Travel: Chicago Eats

    Chicago eats – here are all of the amazing places we ate at – all in one place. Awhile back I broke up our eats into Chicago breakfast eats, Chicago lunch eats, and Chicago dinner eats. Well, in all honesty, you don’t need to hit up those places for those specific meal times. We had great food, amazing food actually, at all but one place. Quite a good batting average, if you ask me! Okay, here we go! Chicago Eats Below you’ll find some photos…

    Travel: Freehand Hotel Chicago

    Where to stay in Chicago? You can’t beat the location of the Freehand Hotel Chicago. Seriously, it’s right in River North, about 2 blocks from Michigan Avenue and half a block from the L train. It’s an adorable place to stay, yet it’s not without some faults. I’ll share below!

    Travel: Art Institute of Chicago

    The Art Institute of Chicago is beautiful. From Monet to Warhol, it’s stunning. They are open daily from 10:30am – 5:00pm, and until 8:00pm on Thursday. First, I can promise you if you’re even slightly more of an art fan than I am, you won’t have enough time in this place. And, as art fans go, I’m about a 6/10. Really. There was a point where we had to burn though spaces, like powerwalking, that way I had time to spend on the pieces I…
