Wedding Time in Chicago!

August 31, 2011
Chicago 2011

It had been almost a decade since I’d really spent any quality time with my extended family on my mom’s side so when my cousin Michele’s wedding came up I really wanted to go.  But Brad didn’t have any vacation time so I packed up myself and the kids and made the trek to Chicago all by myself this week!

I’m so glad I went!  I had the best time!  I think the kids had a blast too!  Aunt Joan was the best and always had really fun stuff for us to do.  I saw almost all my extended family members, met new spouses and boyfriends and girlfriends and kids, and introduced my kids to them!  After ten years, there was a lot to rediscover about Chicago too!  I just loved this trip!


Thought of the Day

I think the thing I love best about changing to our healthier diet is when I go shopping and bring home the massive amounts of produce we use…

It always makes me feel so grateful for the abundance we enjoy!
