Midweek in the Midwest

Last week was unusual to say the least…I wrote this from my brother’s apartment in Chicago! I had a job interview so I drove up to Chicago Tuesday night and am headed back to Oxford right after my interview Wednesday so I can get back home to study for an exam! Lots of driving, but totally worth it, if anything just for a chance to see my adorable baby niece, Kendall, and my brother and sister-in-law. I don’t get to see my family very often so any opportunity to is always exciting!
I even “lucked” out, because my niece was asked to stay home from daycare since she is coming down with a cold, poor thing, but that hasn’t stopped her from playing with me nonstop since I have arrived! She’s started crawling since I last saw her and she is always on the go! She even knows how to take selfies on my iPhone now, so needless to say we’ve had a bit of a photo-shoot…or twelve.
I absolutely love Chicago – it is by far my favorite city! I definitely want to live here when I graduate from Miami. Driving up to the city last night with all of downtown lit up made me so excited – I don’t want to leave! I always feel overwhelmed whenever I leave Oxford, because no buildings in Oxford are even allowed to be more than three stories high! It can make entering a big city feel very intimidating…I never quite realize what a bubble I live in until I leave!
Since it is such a short trip, I don’t have many exciting stories to report, but I did get a couple good pictures while I was here!

I think this selfie with my niece is my favorite – she is too adorable!
And of course I had to get one last shot of the city on my way back out of town…sigh
