My boyfriend turned 40 this year! 40! Sometimes I have a hard time thinking he’s that old (I’m not too far behind and, man, it doesn’t feel like it). So for his birthday we took a quick overnight trip to Chicago. Neither of us had been before. It was fun exploring a new city even though we were a little unprepared for how many people there would be and we had a distinct lack of plans.
It was a fun and quick getaway. We took the train there and back. I would totally take the train again. The whole not driving thing and being able to do homework while traveling was great! I think the mental break from everything was super helpful as well. Half the semester is down…only a few weeks left to go!
