A couple of weeks ago we took off for a crazy road trip up to Chicago to visit my brother.
Driving late into the night.. there is something about roadtrippin after dark that is so exciting.
Morning dawned rainy and cozy..
COFFEE! We drove through Louisville, KY and some dear friends who used to live there recommended this amazing coffee shop called Sunergos. They roast their own beans! Absolutely delicious.
King Julian helped guide the way..
A journal to write down my adventures.
Reunited with my big brother!
Saturday we went into Chicago and hung out at the most delicious coffee shop in the Ukranian village. They had the most unique drinks ever! Mine was a Mayan mocha with chocolate and cayenne.. and Josh’s had sage and pepper in it! They were absolutely delightful.
Catching up on photos and trips and life…
I fell in love with this mural of Cheshire Cat outside the coffee shop.
We hit up Wicker Park and wandered around the streets bursting with art and color.
We stumbled across this delicious Gyros place. Out of this world.
And an incredible coffee shop called the Worm Hole, filled with fun Star Wars posters, the back to the future car, and ninja turtles to name a few.
Oh and not to mention, ammmmazing coffee.
And no trip to Chicago is complete without the world’s best pizza….
Giordano’s deep dish!! Any pizza after this seems like a whisper… or a ghost. :p
We got to hang out with Josh’s awesome friend Isaac over pizza..
One last coffee with Josh before we hit the road back home..
On the drive home we stopped at this amazing little Mexican place. Yes.. Mexican food is my number one.
And of course we had to hit up Sunergos on the way back too! That place is just too amazing.
It was a crazy, short trip filled with so much fun, love, art and good coffee.
Coming up next… beach trip!
