{ Chicago :: Spring 2010 }

I love being spontaneous, I love to travel, and I love that my husband does too.  Our lives get crazy and things change quickly, but we know we always have each other and that’s truly all that matters.  He’s my favorite person in the whole world.  The other weekend, he and I jumped on a train headed for Chicago.  We hadn’t anticipated going, so we didn’t make any real plans.  Or reservations.  We decided the night before to go. We set the alarm for the crack of dawn, quickly threw some clothes in a little suitcase and jumped on the train. That wonderfully slow, swaying train.  It was amazing.  It was just the two of us, wandering around the city in hoodies, sneaks, and windblown hair.  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend, or more perfect company.

{ Love you Jamie }

It was so fun to have no itinerary.  We were free to wander and take our time doing anything and nothing, which meant I was free to see and play and create.  I need to shoot for me more often 😉

I do not know who this dude is, but I adore this image of him

It’s us!  At the Bean!

Holy monkeys, the sensor on my backup/travel camera is filthy.  Don’t hate.  I’ll clean it before weddings start, I promise  😉

Wheee!  🙂

    Did you shoot some of those with a tilt/shift lens? I love these! That is what photography should be about, shooting for you. Even if it only happens once in a while.
