I gave Grisha the weekend off (from me!) and I spent the weekend in Chicago visiting my friends Lauren and Jenn. It was set to be a success from the get-go when Lauren took me to see the vitamin vault in an old-bank-turned-Walgreens, the the zoo (where we were photobombed by some strangers), my favorite chocolate shop Vosges, the farmers market, the modern wing of the Art Institute and used-to-be-Marshal-Fields.
I spent the last day with Jenn at the University of Chicago, visiting the Robie House, trying to look up gargoyle noses and falling behind in school work.
All around a wonderful trip.
