[J] & I spent the weekend in chicago. and it didn’t go quite as planned.
it snowed the entire way, all 6 hours. I have a deep fear of winter driving
even from the passenger seat. so that was fun. we made the trip to celebrate christmas with [J]’s parents, but sadly there was a family emergency and we weren’t able to see them. it snowed all day saturday too. but we didn’t let that stop us, we ventured to macy’s & the christkindlmarket [a german christmas market]. and got an early gift, tickets to second city’s show “miracle on wells street“. it was my first comedy show and I absolutely loved it. we did get to visit a few family members & friends. then it snowed our entire drive back to des moines. shoot.
only 8 days until christmas!
don’t forget to make cookies, drink eggnog, watch at least
two eight christmas movies, and enjoy this time.
