It hadn’t come to mind that had forgotten to share photos from Chicago until after sharing the See Creatures Paris pictures from last week!

So here they are, a general selection of a glimpse into the exploration of a wildly beautiful and wondrous city, far away from home…

A very special thank you to Daisy & Todd for incredible hosting & hospitality…this trip would have not been as possible or profound as it was without your kindness and support!

Primary use of traveling around and about was public transportation (and loved it!) and ran into a farmers market in the heart of downtown after coming up from underground.
