Highlights from this trip were: eating deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati's (it was so good, I felt a little sick after); taking in a Sox game (even in the freezing rain - the beer kept me warm, sort of); going on a green architecture tour with the Chicago Architecture Foundation (I highly recommend this as you get to see the Mayor's green roof - not visible to the average tourist); seeing countless Impressionist and Modern works of art at the Chicago Art Institute (this was recommended to me and I'm so glad for it!); and meeting a very cool local designer at her store - Workshop.
Here are all of the photos I have uploaded from Chicago:

This was a trip that I took on my own and I was glad to have done it. It's a great feeling to know you're not afraid to travel when single. Yahoo!
Until next time, kate.
