5 years of awesomeness

I almost can't believe that I've been married to the ear doctor for 5 years now. 

And at the same time, it feels like he has been a part of my life forever. He's the kindest, funniest, most thoughtful person I've ever met. He is so smart and hardworking and I am SO proud of the work he has chosen to do.

To celebrate our anniversary I really wanted to get out of town. So, 2 weeks ago I went online and found that the cheapest airfare of the day from Denver would land us in Chicago. I'd never been to Chicago before...and I love being in big cities. So I booked the tickets.

My mom, who is awesome, graciously let us use all her stored up Hampton Inn points and got us a hotel right downtown for 5 nights. She's the best!

We ate like kings, walked all around the city and had a great time. Even though we were there for 5 whole days I felt like we barely scratched the surface of all the cool things that city has to offer. We'll be back for sure!

Doughnut Vault...a MUST! Delicious doughnuts. But get there early! They open at 8:30 and by 9:45 are usually sold out!
 

Riding public transit...a huge perk of being in a real city. (no offense, Denver)
 

Me with Apollo 8 at the museum of science and industry. This is approximately the same area of the new vehicle that I'm designing!

 I couldn't resist...I love everythingl red-head themed...
