This evening Tony and I are hopping on a plane to Chicago!! I am beside myself with excitement...focusing on work is hit or miss this morning, which is fine by me. I've wanted to visit Chicago for as long as I can remember, and after a few failed attempts with friends over the years, my little Midwest dream is finally coming true. Thank you, handsome boyfriend! Tony has a work conference to attend next week, so we'll have a little him + me + Chicago time this weekend and then I'll be let loose on the city Monday and Tuesday while Tony's holed up in a conference room. But, we get our evenings...and Tuesday evening is shaping up to be phenomenal: Chicago (the band!) will be performing in the Navy Pier area (I do believe) along with unlimited food and drink for the conference attendees and their guests. Thank goodness my parents passed along their love of Classic Rock to me. Come Wednesday morning, I will hop on a train to Ann Arbor, MI where my mother will be anxiously awaiting my arrival so we can spend the remainder of the week with my Grammy and Uncle. I'm looking forward to used book shopping with my Mom and Grammy, evening walks around the neighborhood, and catching up with family.
I am unbelievably excited for this vacation!
