I am back from a little hiatus and thought I would share some of my instagram travel photos with you!
Mr. A and I spent the week after Memorial Day in the great state of Illinois. It was so nice to see and spend time with both sides of our families. My Dad's side lives in Southern Ilinois (see above picture) and Chris's sister was married in Chicago.
We had a very warm welcome from my Dad and his awesome girlfriend, Joey, when we arrived in Clinton. This little town has some serious charm, serious ties to Honest Abe, AND my family has serious history there too! My great-grandma actually has a street named after her in Clinton, Marion Street!
I think my favorite part of the whole trip may have been spending time with my Dad....
...and of course, eating his steadfast breakfast (aka cowboy breakfast) of biscuits and gravy, cheese eggs, and bacon!Kickapoo Creek Winery very near Clinton and the Kickapoo Creek I spent summers playing on! I am SOOOOOOOO going there the next time I am in Illinois.
All of the food all weekend long was fabulous! From the rehearsal dinner at The University Club, to the reception dinner at The Ivy Room. (I LOVE a wedding with good food, don't you?!)
The wonderful bride and groom (Mr. & Mrs. James Rich) leaving the ceremony site, Saint James Cathedral.
This picture says it all!
What a wonderful week Mr. A and I had, but we are soooooo happy to be back! Stay tuned for posts this week!
