You can never go wrong with a good brunch! This place was so great; cozy environment, delicious food, and such a friendly staff. If you are ever in Chicago, you do not want to miss this place! HUGS

Hotel mornings

Hotel mornings <3

We had such a nice stay at The James Chicago. The room was spacious with a great view. The bathroom was modern. Everything was clean and fresh. They also had a tablet where you could order food, towels, water, etc. So convenient. The staff was so friendly! I very much recommend this place. HUGS

Chicago summary

Chicago is one of my all time favorite cities. It has great shopping, amazing food, incredible views, and so much more. I have only been in the spring / summer time before and I definitely recommend going then. This trip was nothing short of wonderful, but Chicago has more to offer during the summer. During warmer days, there are tons of free concerts and events going on around the city. Navy Pier and all the parks are more fun. The restaurants and cafes also have their outdoor seating open during the spring and summer. Lastly, you can go on an awesome boat tour along the river to see the beautiful skyline.

So what did we do in Chicago? We ate, we shopped, and we walked around and explored the city. What more can you ask for?

Sweet Green Chicago

On our first day in Chicago, we had lunch at Sweet Green and oh my. This place was like stepping into lunch heaven. You could either order from a set menu, or you could create your own salad by picking your type of greens and toppings. I picked my own which consisted of: arugula and spinach, warm chick peas, tomato, feta cheese, avocado, chicken, and pesto vinaigrette. They toss it for you and voila! So quick, so fresh, and so delicious. The juices were also fresh and yummy. The atmosphere of this place was great. I highly recommend this place. Can this come to Atlanta ASAP?!

Selfie overload

I really wish I was back at The James Chicago, what a wonderful stay we had. The location was perfect, we were in the heart of Chicago. The staff at the hotel were so kind and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to sightseeing options. I have nothing but good things to say about this place! HUGS

Atlanta to Chicago

What an incredible weekend trip we had! I am so happy, but it is not as fun being back in reality this week with exams and essays.

We flew with American Airlines, which I have not done in years. On the way to Chicago, I was super impressed as the airplane was new and the movies were free! On the way home we got an old plane without screens so it was not as fun.

I'll be posting more pictures and tips from Chicago during the week so be on the look out. HUGS
