Thank you for all your wonderfully kind words and congratulations on yesterday’s big announcement! I have a few “I can’t publish these first-trimester-rants until I’m 12 weeks” posts I’ve had saved for a bit that I need to go through (some are coherent, others…not so much) but I also have a lots of pictures from our fun trip to Chicago last weekend. This first trimester may have me exhausted and sick, but it hasn’t stop us from keeping all of our original travel plans (like that trip to DC last month). We spent last Friday and Saturday night in the loop (right downtown Chicago) with two friends who had never been to the city before.
We started off Saturday morning at the covered French market on Clinton street. I’d discovered it two years ago with friends and we had enjoyed the best late lunch of assorted cheese and fresh baugettes that I knew I wanted to come back (pictures of my first trip at the bottom of this post). The market is full of different vendors selling everything from fresh organic produce to fine olive oils (with plenty of food options thrown in for good measure).
