We'll always have CHICAGO

Chicago holds a special place in my heart. In November Monica and I drove to Chicago after our weekend of Christmas photo shoots. My flight back to London was leaving from ORD so we decided to make a trip of it. We drove from Rockford to Chicago, which took about four hours and spent the rest of the day being tourists. We walked to Navy Pier, rode the Ferris wheel, took photos at the Bean, and simply soaked up the Christmas atmosphere.

Monica and I have a little tradition that we have to do whenever we visit some place new, Pressed pennies. So far we have collected pennies from London Eye, London Aquarium, Hunstanton, Boulder Ridge Zoo, Traverse City and now Chicago.

Before heading to the Hilton hotel at ORD, where we were staying, I finally got to introduce Monica to the Starbucks hot chocolate, which if you haven't had one yet, you must, and don't forget to add extra chocolate at the end! Chicago was short but very sweet. Despite the weather Monica and I had such fun and we will definitely be back, maybe in the summer next time!
