Adrian and I are in Chicago for the Labor Day weekend for a college friend’s wedding. It’s my first time here in this beautiful city and I’m absolutely in love with the beautiful architecture and abundance of history this city has to offer.
Our day started off a bit rainy, but we were able to buy a couple umbrellas at a pop-in convenience store and were back on our way. The city street lights were absolutely twinkling amidst the raindrops!
Our first stop was to check out Millennium Park and the infamous “bean”. It’s so amazing to see such stunning art in the middle of a bustling city! There was a jazz festival just setting up and I loved hearing the sound of music filling the air as we walked around the park.
While it continued pouring, we stopped in to check out the artwork at the Chicago Art Institute where we were able to see the American Gothic “pitchfork” painting. The rain eased up once we were finished and the afternoon was spent walking down “The Magnificent Mile”.
Our night closed off with meeting up with a few old friends as well as the future bride and groom at Rock Bottom Brewery! The time was spent catching up on stories and discovering how many mutual connections we all had in our small world. This weekend has been off to a great start and I can’t wait for the wedding festivities today!
