Chicago through my iPhone

Last weekend I took an impromptu trip to Chicago for the day. Probably the most exciting thing about the trip was finally seeing my family for the first time in 8 months! 

Also seeing my sister's little pregnant belly for the first time! 

I had a place specifically in mind for brunch, but after wandering for a half an hour looking for the place I finally settled on a little French restaurant called La Brasserie. 

I literally found this place by searching "smoked salmon sandwich" on google. And we weren't going to go here, but I was lucky enough that we walked passed it on the street starving and cold and we stopped in. Definitely an amazing choice. The Croque Salmon was absolutely delicious and watching my Mother actually order French food was incredibly surprising because she is pretty much the pickiest and least adventurous person when it comes to food I know. 

Unfortunately it was so cold and rainy out that we ended up leaving a few hours before we has originally planned. Didn't lessen my love for Chicago. 

And of course we had to go out for dinner with the rest of my siblings and take an obnoxious amount of pictures. 

It sucks only being there for a day, but hopefully soon I can be back for a longer trip.
