We took a little trip to Chicago back in April.
Since it seems I have very little time to blog these days, I figured I'd give you the abbreviated version. Hey, better than nothing right?
First, we visited the John Hancock Observatory.
We didn't even have to chop it up in little pieces for anyone. Amazing!
Then we went back up in the Hancock Observatory to see what it looked like after dark.
And now I have to tell you a little story about one of the most romantic moments of my life. I was sitting next to my husband (whom I haven't had a real conversation with in approximately 8 months) on the 96th floor of the Hancock Observatory. Seeing the city lights below was awe-inspiring and one of the most amazing views I have ever seen. It was one of those views that makes you realize how small you really are compared to the giant world around you. I squeezed John's hand and said, "Is this just incredible to you????? Probably not, huh, since you've been so many different places. You've been to Japan, all over Europe, seen the Swiss Alps, etc. This is probably nothing compared to those places." Then he looked back at me and said, "Yeah, but YOU weren't there with me when I saw those places." *melting heart* Then he corrected me and said he hadn't ever seen the Swiss Alps :) Ha!
