Chicago Trip!

A couple weekends ago, Ryan and I ventured to Chicago for a quick trip for our friend's wedding [which was just beautiful!]. And while we were there, we got to stay with my sweet little sister and see my Dad for a day too!

After we arrived from our red-eye flight, we went straight to Andersonville once my Dad arrived and we got our fika.

 Naturally, we went to the Swedish American Bakery there for our fika. Back when I lived in Chicago, I lived in Andersonville, in walking distance to this bakery...dangerous!
 We got a marzipan frog, chocolate eclair, and some delicious almond tarts that I forgot to take a picture of.

 After our delicious fika, we walked around Andersonville for a while then went to Giordano's for lunch. We had to eat some Chicago pizza while we were there!
This crazy guy was very excited to try Giordano's.
And these crazy kids are getting married in less than two weeks!?!?! How is that possible?! My baby sister is all grown up. So excited to celebrate with them!
 And that was our weekend in a nutshell. Great times!


  1. Hej!
    How exciting to read about your upcoming trip to Sweden.
    I live in Sweden and can not wait until the summer when I´ll travel to San Francisco. Last summer, I went to New York. I love the US :D

    1. How fun! Enjoy San Francisco and New York! I'll be in Stockholm, Gränna, and Jönköping! :)
