Chicago Weekend


B.J. and I spent the weekend in Chicago visiting our close friends, Ben and Christina (we miss them already). It was my first time being away from Charley for more than a night so the five hour drive home wasn't as depressing as other times, simply because I knew I was getting closer to squeezing her to pieces. Our weekend away had the perfect mix of relaxation, fun restaurants and delicious food, mani/pedi/shopping girl time, an 80's cover band, and their favorite neighborhood dive bar (think MacLaren's Pub from How I Met Your Mother), just to name a few. Any time I'm visiting different places, I want to remember the little things that inspired me along the way. Here are a few things that, for one reason or another, caught my eye.

{The most delicious maple cinnamon latte that I need to recreate somehow}

{Lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry compote and lemon curd}

{Inspiration for our front door}

{Stacked books at Anthropologie~I just love books, piles and piles of books}
