Friday Favorites | Beauty & Blooms

With half of Ian’s family living in Scotland we do not have many opportunities to spend quality time together. Luckily, one of his cousins is attending grad school in the States and we were able to catch up with her in Chicago. We took the train into the city and are now converts! It was so quick and easy – plus we didn’t get stuck with a $70 parking bill. Hopefully this means we will be taking more frequent trips into the city. Hope you all have a great weekend!

In my latest Friday Favorites post I talked about my Chicago trip. Since it was our first couples trip, that included my best friend from High School and her boyfriend, we came home with more photos that normal and I thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorites! Our trip was filled with shopping on Michigan Ave, dinner at Hub 51, and drinks on the 96th floor of the Hancock Building. We had such a great time in Chicago and we can’t wait until our next visit.
