What can I say about this particular weekend? It was filled with truly some of the best, most enriched, adventurous, special, exciting days that I've ever had. If you would have told me a couple years ago that I would be renting an apartment in Chicago with these two girls, I probably never would have believed you....but isn't it amazing how life works out sometimes. Jesus does work things out to be so, so much better than I would ever want or need. Just us, together, growing closer and talking about Him - it was absolutely wonderful. A good, deep, conversation excites me more than anything, and there were plenty of those to be had. All this on top of the fact that we were in Chicago; the beautiful and enormous city with Midwest charm. And were doing life in our tiny and light filled temporary home, falling asleep to the hum of the city; and waking up to the most dramatic sunrises I've ever seen.
The nights turned into early mornings far too often.
Caffeine consumption was at an all time high.
I hailed a cab and crossed it off my lifetime to-do list.
We learned the wonders of the Michigan Ave Walgreens.
Miles (and miles and miles and miles) of sites were seen.
"You've Got Mail" was shared and gushed over.
New friends were met.
Videos were made.
Meals were skipped and not cared about.
Adventures, tears, and hold-your-breath laughter were had.
It was glorious.
