Throwback Thursday Post: Chicago


For Thanksgiving 2015 I visited my family in Chicago. They don't live right in the city, more like the suburbs around it, but we spent a whole day in the windy city. The best part of Chicago is the deep dish pizza. Okay, so actually it's seeing my awesome family that I don't see that often, but the second best part is the pizza. My personal favorite is the deep dish from Gino's East. 

On this particular day, we went to The Bean in Millennium Park. My first thought before going was "How impressive can a frickin giant bean be?" but once we went it was in fact impressive and very interesting. At some angles it reflects the city scape, which presents a beautiful view and good photo-taking opportunity. We walked through Millennium Park and then went to the Christkindlmarket, a German, Christmas-themed market of food, cultural goods, and lots of beer. It was very fun, but it did make me realize how much German I forgot since taking it in high school (Oh nein). 

Since it was very cold and slightly windy, I packed on the layers. I wore a knit long-sleeve, a thick flannel, a jacket, and then a letterman-style jacket over it. I wore leggings and my Nikes to be comfortable and added my knit scarf, beanie, and gloves for warmth.
