first days, chicago [ part 1 ]

We caught a really good deal on plane tickets to Chicago, and were able to take a little extra time off work to explore the city over our anniversary weekend. Adventures!

As it goes - I didn't take a ton of great pictures, (I missed an entire day!) but i'll do my best to share what we did get! Our first stop, as we waited for hotel check-in time >> Giordano's. A couple people suggested grabbing pizza here >> and after our flight, this seemed like an easy stop. YUMMY.

After checking in, we went for a walk down to the water. Stopping at the super great: Intelligentsia (we had too) - and onward to Navy Pier. I love some good ferris wheel time >> and margaritas on the waterfront. Mmmmm...
