Hello from the Chicago airport!
I am officially waiting for my flight to Philadelphia that will then take me to London!
We all woke up bright and early to head out to Chicago so we would have a little time to enjoy the day before my flight.
I had a great day in Chicago with my family. It was the perfect way to say goodbye. One of my friends from Chicago suggested eating at a little restaurant called Quartino. It was such a cute authentic Italian restaurant and the food was delicious!
The even had a chef’s coat signed by Julia Child!
Since it was a “small plates” restaurant, my mom gave us all a dish to choose so that we weren’t overwhelmed by the huge menu. I chose a salad. Baby spinach and pear to be exact.
We then walked around downtown a little before actually heading to the airport. When we arrived, I had to check in manually because they misspelled my name on my reservation, and then at first they couldn’t find my reservation….then my bag was about 6 pounds overweight!!
We thought quick on our feet and took out my shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, and shaving cream. Brenna and Brian scored some free loot while I have to buy more once I am in London…Brian said this is a good situation because now, I will smell like a local!
I am going to miss everyone soooo much! And even though I have just left and have no idea what is in store, I can’t wait to come back home.
PS…this is the fastest post ever because I got 20 minutes of free internet and just used it for this!!
