Chicago, Illinois

I visited Diane for a few days in Chicago.  I landed in O’Hare International and went straight to her race to watch her place.

Later that night we went to a birthday dinner for Diane’s friends. Food was so good. Selfies at dinner.

Bar hopping and met up with LA homeboy Jimmy!
I was gone here.. I was trying to take a selfie to show Cassie the lipgloss she got me ❤

I woke up in D’s room to this wall decal.  This either said one of the following to me…
1. Love sucks, girl. Spit it up and get it out of you.
2. Make it rain love.

Diane helps a family in Chicago with their children.  This family has two children, but it was the daughter’s “special day”.  The parents took her to go see the Nutcracker so they could spend some quality time with her.  I followed D around like a shadow that weekend and got to play with the babies.


Reading bedtime stories before nap time.

From the women’s bathroom at the John Hancock Center. It had the best view.

This chandelier in the John Hancock building reminded me of an atom with electrons orbiting the nucleus. Nerd-ing out a little but it looked beautiful.

D had work the next day and I went for a walk.

I kept walking and ended going about 3.5 miles out to this ramen place, Ramen-San. I don’t recommend it.  Its just okay for the east coast, but I’ve had much better.

I usually eat a donut a day and found the donut shop we went to last year across the street. Firecakes!

And then I went to the zoo! This was my favorite! I love animals!
i wanted to take a selfie with him but he wouldnt turn around.

I dont know what these are but theyre some kind of primate.

I bet hes so fluffy. I’ll never get to hug him.

I made it to the airport later that night with a 2 hour delay. We said our goodbyes by the curb, hugged, and took a selfie. It makes me sad these days will someday just be a memory. I wish it could be a routine instead. I miss you already D.
