last weekend, we made our way over to chicago to celebrate the marriage of our friends john & brittnee. while we were at it, we made a little road trip out of visiting surrounding towns, as well -- chris' parents grew up in and were married in naperville, and he was born in wheaton (they lived in the sweetest little yellow house!). we've done similar drives together around my own hometown and i really loved this peek into his family history.

a few favorites from the weekend:
+ an architectural boat tour along the river
+ the view from the signature lounge
+ catching a cubs game at wrigley field
+ hot dogs at portillo's
+ exploring lincoln park
+ funny faces in the bean
+ white chocolate pretzel pancakes at the bongo room
+ sharing small plates at the purple pig (the pork shoulder! the beets!)
+ buttermilk donuts from do-rite
+ afternoons at the allis
+ deep dish, because chicago...
