Could not have asked for a more perfect weekend with my handsome guy. We were tourists in out own city. We started the weekend in Arlington Heights for dinner with my parents and then headed to an Irish pub (our favorite kinda place!) and talked and laughed all night. We spent Saturday in Chicago on an architecture boat tour, strolling the Mag Mile, downing burgers on the river at the most perfect French bistro, and met up with Lizzy, Chips sister, for dinner and drinks and meeting her boyfriend! We had a blast playing bar games all night (which we learned I’m no good at). Sunday we woke up in Winnetka feeling bittersweet over our eminent goodbye-but we made the best of it with brunch at Walker Bros pancake house and then Chips grad party with the whole fam at Ravinia. It was great spending time with the entertaining and always welcoming Potters as we sang along to musical show tunes on the lawn.
Saying goodbye to my second family and Chip was certainly not easy. But he kept me smiling and laughing all night, reminding me that I am following my dream and this is a good thing. Seriously, he wouldn’t drive away if I was crying.
We’re already planning his trip to the happiest place on earth—he’s in for the full Disney World experience when he comes!
Thanks chip for making this one of the happiest summers full of so much love
