Wordless Wednesday-Chi Town Adventures with an Aussie

For the first time in my 25 years, I took a "girl's" trip. My friend Blair traveled roughly 9495 miles from Sydney, Austrailia to come see me. So, I left my husband and little man behind and ventured out--to Chicago!

Chicago, Chicago, that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around, I love it

I was sad, yet exhilarated! Ultimately it ended up being a brilliant whirlwind trip. And I'm so happy to have been able to share it with one of my best friends that I never get to see!

Touching "The Bean", it's kind of like the Blarney Stone of Chicago

One of my favorite shots. "The Bean" in Autumn

Jellies at Shedd Aquarium

We had a beautiful day to sightsee!

Chicago: The City That Reads Together


  1. Love the pictures! :) Did you get to see Marilyn Monroe statue or eat @ bubba gumps restaurant. Love that place. I Live in Chi-town. Glad you had fun.

  2. Looks like fun! I love the jellyfish photo.

  3. Nice to meet you! Thank you for visiting my site! Oh, Chicago - one of those places on my "bucket list"! And how fabulous for your friend to travel all those thousands of miles to see you - you are blessed. Be sure to check out my post tomorrow - we are reading a terrific little book :)

  4. Travel is so much fun and rejuvenating. Glad you had a fun trip. Where did you travel from? Love your bean pic! :)

  5. That's so great that you were able to take a girls' trip with a good friend! I spent a week in Chicago - what a rush!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy WW!

  6. I've never been to Chicago. How fun it would be to go for a girls' weekend!
