This summer we had a fabulous opportunity to take a mini vacation to Chicago and discover the Windy City with our two favorite Australians! I first met Katie 5ish years ago through my personal blog and have long admired her warm heart and amazing sense of style. When she announced plans to take a holiday with her Mr. Morgan this summer in the U.S., we knew we had to make a way to meet in real life! Coincidentally, they had relatives to visit in Illinois and Chicago was the perfect location for a rendezvous. Although it’s the next closest big city to Minneapolis, we’d never done much more than simply pass through on the interstate. I am so glad we finally stopped and soaked it all in–because I am completely smitten with this place and so glad we got to experience it with these sweet friends!
