chicago : a video

I had plans this weekend other than sitting on my couch editing, but sometimes life has other ideas (a bummed foot). The silver lining is I finally got around to putting together a video from our Chicago trip in June. We had to make a family visit to another (small) town in Illinois, so we decided to extend the trip and spend a couple days in the city visiting friends and exploring. I’d never been, and my husband hardly remembers his only trip as a child. It was hot (LA has made me weak), but so great to reconnect with an old high school friend (of mine) and a couple grad school friends (of his), eat some good food (deep dish pizza, donuts, and Au Cheval burgers), and sight-see the famous architecture.

Watch the video above for a pretty comprehensive travel diary of our trip (excluding an entertaining comedy show at Second City – thanks again Kristi and Greg for the tickets!).
