Sweet Home Chicago

Sweet home, Chicago! This past weekend, my husband and I decided to go home for the weekend to visit family. I was prepared for a cold Chicago winter but the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. It was in the 60s and the leaves were still golden. I brought a big winter coat but didn’t even need it. We strolled down Michigan Ave to do some shopping and I stopped by H&M to pick up some stuff for the holidays.

This season is my favorite time to go downtown in Chicago because of all the Christmas decorations and lights. People seem to be in a better mood this time of year, too. We also stopped by one of my favorite places, Millennium Park, which was already bustling with tourists. Of course, we had to stop by the ever-busy Intelligentsia for a vanilla latte (with oat milk, which was actually pretty good) while downtown.

Finally, I never go home and not get a Chicago dog and/or an Italian beef sandwich (spoiler alert: I got both)! This is a must if you’re in Chicago! I think some time down the road, I need to make a blog post of my favorite spots in Chicago. I’ll work on this.

until next time,
