As if I don't already feel lucky enough to get to work with my best friend every day, we also recently got to take our first business trip together! It was a whirlwind trip to Chicago, but in between the all-day classes we attended we managed to soak up some of the windy city experience :)
We stayed in a little hotel just off Michigan Avenue (aka Cheryl's shopping heaven)
Leave it to Cheryl and I to overindulge on good food :) Not pictured: our first night there we had a deep dish pizza delivered to our hotel room!
When the weather was clear, we had a chance to take in some sights on foot.
And on the second day when a thunderstorm hit, we squeezed in a little shopping to take haven in the stores along Michigan Avenue.
Getting home was a little stressful. I'm so glad I had my best friend there, who I know is only one of few people that will put up with me when I'm freaking out about something like flying up into a thunderstorm. She even offered help by telling me about this movie called Flight, saying we should worry more about whether or not our pilot is sober than worry about the tumultuous weather. What would I do without Cheryl?!
