snowy chicago.

[J] & I spent the weekend in chicago. and it didn’t go quite as planned.

it snowed the entire way, all 6 hours. I have a deep fear of winter driving even from the passenger seat. so that was fun. we made the trip to celebrate christmas with [J]’s parents, but sadly there was a family emergency and we weren’t able to see them. it snowed all day saturday too. but we didn’t let that stop us, we ventured to macy’s & the christkindlmarket [a german christmas market]. and got an early gift, tickets to second city’s show “miracle on wells street“. it was my first comedy show and I absolutely loved it. we did get to visit a few family members & friends. then it snowed our entire drive back to des moines. shoot.

      I live in Des Moines, IA. thankfully a very do-able driving distance from chicago. I absolutely love to visit.

    I’m with you- driving in snow is terrifying! (Granted, we’re never prepared for it here, since we get snow about once or twice a year). Chicago looks magical at Christmas!

    • #LLinaBC December 19, 2013 at 1:40 pm

      that’s even scarier. it seems like the first couple snowfalls in Iowa, people forget how to drive in the snow. and you can’t drive a block without seeing an accident. hopefully people will get the hang of it again soon. and you be careful!!!

    Lovely pictures Chelsea. It looks magical with the snow but also looks extremely cold! I hope we get some snow 🙂 xx

      very, very cold but worth it. [J] & I got into a ‘friendly’ snowball fight in the middle of the city. snow can be fun! 🙂
