  • Hey @claireforsyth1984 ...⁣
⁣
Remember that time we climbed to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa?⁣
⁣
Looking back, why did we think it was a good idea to climb to the top of a leaning tower?! 😂⁣
⁣
It must have been the many bottles of wine we consumed beforehand that clouded our judgement.⁣
⁣
But what a comical, fun day we had! I’m so glad you were one of the people sitting in front of us on the bus (what was your seat mate’s name??? Paul?)?⁣
⁣
Who would have thought that a cell phone left in the back of a bus seat pocket would be the start of a great friendship?!⁣
⁣
I hope you have an awesome birthday and a year filled with great adventures and a graduate degree! 👩🏼‍🎓⁣
⁣
Cheers! 🥂
  • Throwing it back to the day my friend Joanna and I went to Nationals Park and got to hang out with Teddy Roosevelt...⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Abe Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were there too! ⁣⁣

What a fun day!

  • I was looking through photos from my trip to Greece this weekend and now I want to go back. ⁣
⁣
The islands were so beautiful and colorful. I loved the food and the people were so wonderful too. I would pick a quieter island or two this time to change it up. ⁣

  • It finally happened.⁣
⁣
I found a brewery that I really like!⁣
⁣
Last Friday night, some friends and I met in the Pilsen neighborhood for dinner and then walked over to Moody Tongue Brewing Company for dessert and after dinner drinks.⁣
⁣
I’m so skeptical when it comes to breweries because I don’t like most craft beers. ⁣
⁣
Bud Light for me please!⁣
⁣
BUT, Moody Tongue has a grapefruit beer that is delicious!!! I could have had multiple of them and that’s so unusual for me for craft beers.⁣
⁣
Have you had grapefruit beer? If so, did you like it? ⁣
⁣
PS. The chocolate cake was insane and delicious too! So many layers. ⁣
⁣
  • Have you ever considered a girls’ weekend road trip through North Dakota?⁣
⁣
I’ll admit, I hadn’t either but as part of my quest for 50 states, that’s exactly what I found myself doing last summer.⁣
⁣
Turns out, there’s a lot to see in North Dakota and we had a great time getting to them all! ⁣

Read all about our adventure in my latest blog post. The link is in my bio.
  • Badlands National Park. We were there in 2016 and it was one of my favorite vacations to date.⁣
⁣
The park is located on the edge of the Great Plains in southwestern South Dakota.⁣
⁣
It consists of 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest, protected mixed-grass prairie in the US.⁣
⁣
The park contains one of the world’s richest fossil beds, which allows scientists to study the evolution of mammal species such as the horse, rhino and saber-toothed cat. ⁣
⁣
Badlands National Park is also home to many animals, from tiny shrews to 2,000-pound bison. ⁣
⁣
If you haven’t been to South Dakota, Go now! You won’t be disappointed.⁣
⁣
  • I came home from Arizona to my favorite time of year in Chicago.⁣
⁣
It’s tulip time!!! 🤗🌷🤗🌷⁣
⁣
I love these white ones that are currently blooming along State Street. The water droplets are an added bonus! ⁣
⁣
What’s your favorite time of year where you live? ⁣
