Mini-break to Chicago

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.

Just as we were getting on this water taxi we saw the actor Oliver Platt! He just missed the taxi!

It’s the bean…I mean Cloud Gate!

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!
