My Trip to the Windy City

I have always wanted to go to Chicago (mostly for my admiration for Oprah) and I finally made it out there to spend time with two of my best friends!  I was so excited to eat and drink in this city… and we did just that.  Although I could not see Oprah, the city was filled with plenty of things to do!

I had so much fun on this trip and really loved the city.  It was very easy to get around (unlike LA) and there were lots of great neighborhoods filled with cute restaurants, cafes and bars.  Plus… a FREE ZOO!  Who does that??!  It was awesome.  And wow, how I have missed my friends out there 🙂  Here are some highlights of the trip!
