Recently went to visit my cousins in Chicago after not having seen them for 3 years! And I seemed to have brought the California sunshine with me because we got perfect weather the whole weekend I was there. Sunny and warm, not exactly normal fall weather for Chi-town. My first time visiting when I was 16 definitely did not do the city justice. Perhaps because I was not able to free roam and drink cocktails at happy hour? Perhaps. I love this shot I captured of the Bean, which is still one of my favorite tourist spots I’ve ever been to. Go to Russia Tea Room if you have the time! I am still dreaming of that food. And Dylan’s Candy Bar if you have a hankering for a cotton candy martini!
