and let me tell you, i was not ready to come back!
despite the fact that it rained the whole time we were there.
i love traveling, and have decided we need to do as much of it as our
pocketbooks can handle while we're still kid-less.
even if it's only day trips to nearby cities, like ann arbor.
it's so thrilling to experience different places.
especially when i am bored to death with where we are now.
it seems i am always craving change.
i am so happy that spring is finally arriving; once it is warm & sunny
and the flowers are blooming here,
i think i will have a new-found appreciation for my surroundings.
i most certainly appreciated my surroundings while we were in chicago.
it is such a magnificent city. i have long desired to live there; although
this desire has decreased lately as my desire to live somewhere warm has
skyrocketed; i'm pretty sure chicago winters are even more brutal than ours
(no thank you!) anyway, here are a few photos of our lil road trip.
|us at hotel indigo. complimentary stay, thanks to my day job!|
|unfortunately, this is the best photo i got of one of the most mind-blowing concerts i've been to :: Arcade Fire. incredible. any fellow arcade fire fans out there?|
