dec. 1: trip.

What was your best trip in 2009?

This is the first question posed by Gwen Bell for the Best of 2009 Blog Challenge.

I wish I could say that my best trip was the impromptu trip to New York City in the middle of the night (the "accidental tourist" story, which I promise I will share this week!), but that was in November of '08.

The best trip this year was the trip that we took to one of my new favorite cities. A city that I like almost as much as New York. So much so, that I refer to it as Almostnewyork.

That city is Chicago.

We spent a marvelous week and a half up there for my husband's job (which I mentioned here), and I am so glad we got the chance to go. The Navy Pier, Giordano's Pizza, Portillo's, and of course Lake Michigan were some of the places we frequented.

We want to go back. Soon.

Beautiful captures of Chicago. It was also one of my favorite trips of 2009 - for #blogher09. I love the city.

Kind of jealous, I've never been to Chicago. We really went almost no where in 2009. But we did take the kids to the beach and they loved it.

My trip of a lifetime was in 2008. New Zealand. Sigh. I want to go back.
