We used to be the couple who traveled with two carry-ons, no matter HOW long our trip was going to be. We
two large suitcases, two large carry-on's, and the infamous car seat bag LOL
We took a trip to my favorite.sandwich.shop.ever! I have been craving this for over a year, and finally got to indulge in my turkey with hot peppers...yummm.
My in-law's live in the suburbs, but we wanted to take a trip downtown to visit all of our favorite places. It was so much fun - we got to show Sophia all around the city...she was sleeping ;).
gorg, new burberry store is finally done!
My very first Chicago apartment - Michigan Avenue...oh, the memories! I lived on the top (38th) floor on the corner - you can see my old window (top left).
the most delicious hot chocolate ever
After an amazing Christmas in Chicago, we hopped a plane headed to Iowa. We usually have Christmas at my parent's home, but my sister-in-law just had a baby and this meant minimal travel, so my OTHER sister-in-law and brother graciously hosted a beautiful Christmas. I swear, she is the best hostess and thinks of every detail! See what I mean?
Sophia and her cousin, Gemma
Sophia and Graham - these two are 3 weeks apart!
Papa & Sophia
visiting my brother's new office that he built - so proud!
How cute is this picture of my nieces? LOL - they love each other!
The following day, we headed to my parent's house to spend some time and visit my grandparents. I don't get to see them often, and I really wanted them to be able to meet Sophia.
gorgeous sunrise from my parent's front yard
love spending time with my mama (and dad) - wish they lived closer
Sophia and her great grands - such a precious memory.
finally home - enjoying a relaxing new year by the fire!
Back to reality!
