the chicago debriefing

I’m back! After spending five days in Chicago, I’m plum exhausted. The trip was mostly about work, but I had plenty of down time to eat and drink and have an all around good time. My husband spent the first few days with me, and we had a blast playing tourist.

In the spirit of keeping it short and sweet, I’m sharing some photos from the trip. I think they’ll speak for themselves.

(Like my friend Jen (of Last Night’s Dinner) does with her Weekend Eats (And Drinks) posts, if you click on the pictures, it will take you to my Flickr stream where you can learn more about each image.)

    Just gorgeous! I got to spend some time hiking this weekend and it was incredibly relaxing. Living in a city, I need the calming effect of nature from time to time.

    Beautiful post… just what I need to get through Hump Day!

    That is such a beautiful place. It is one place that hasn’t changed much in all these years.

    Oh, my. I just read “Wordless Wednesday” from December 1, 2010. I remember that day clearly. Beautiful shots of the Ichetucknee River and the grandchildren.
