life lately

Despite being sick all last week, life has been pretty great lately. I've been taking this time in-between jobs to not only reflect on what I want to do next, but to enjoy our new city. We've been very lucky with weather lately and we've been taking full advantage by walking everywhere. Ok, maybe I'm also nervous to try public transportation, but the walking has been amazing. 

Our first week here we were blessed with summer-like temperatures which I took full advantage of by laying on our rooftop deck and reading a good book. You simply cannot beat that view. 

Our favorite part of the city so far? The food! Two of my favorite spots so far have been Quartino and Henry's, both in the River North neighborhood. If you're looking for a great meal and atmosphere for a decent price Quartino is perfect! Their doughnut desert was delicious!

We tried Henry's our first weekend before a night out and were blown away by not only their food but their service. Henry's is new to the neighborhood and specializes in gourmet sliders and hand crafted cocktails - need I say more? 

Chicago has been amazing so far. I'm looking forward to trying out more restaurants and checking out workout studios next. If you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments below!
