Why, hello there! How was your Labor Day weekend? I realized on Thursday, while sitting on an airplane to Chicago's O'Hare Airport, that I completely forgot to even mention that I'd be in the Windy City for the long weekend. My parents hosted a mini wedding reception at their place for all the Chicago-based friends and family who couldn't make it to our Annapolis wedding. Jason's parents and sister joined us, and since they'd never been to Chicago, we had a blast showing them around.
Here are some of my favorite moments from the weekend.
Such a beautiful skyline, no?

We took an architectural boat tour. Chicago has some amazing architecture, and even though I've taken this tour several times before, it never gets old.
Gorgeous, isn't it?
Here we are, enjoying my parents' beautiful backyard before the guests arrived
There were blondies, brownies, and blueberry tarts...oh my!
Hanging out with Kaitlyn, the daughter of my mom's cousin. Is she cute or what?
