This weekend was for overdue trips — the last time I was in Chicago I was in college and was able to take a pit-stop while touring with a dance company. That was eight years ago. Needless to say, the visit north was needed. 

The city was pretty quiet over the holiday weekend so we biked through the mostly deserted streets and up and down Lake Michigan. We ate, and sipped cocktails and then ate some more. There was yoga in the park, strolls through cute brownstone neighborhoods and Fourth of July rooftop fireworks. And most importantly I finally got to meet D and A!
