I’m in Chicago this week for Accenture’s consultant training courses, and I legitimately forgot how insanely cold this city gets. McKenzie and I came in March for a quick 24-hour adventure, and while we were absolutely frozen the whole time, we loved it. The two of us shopped on Michigan Avenue, went to Second City (highly recommend it to anyone visiting), ate at Purple Pig, took pictures in Millenium Park, met Jackson at 2 Sparrows (where I had my first St. Germain cocktail!). Some of the snapshots from the trip are below – please take note of my thermal jacket and gloves (such a weenie). I’m definitely planning another trip to Chicago soon to see Mara and Caroline, once she’s all settled in at Google.


  1. I think you meant Michigan Ave… Madison Ave is on your mind from NYC. It’s supposed to be high 60s, low 70s this week so you’ll be ok. And you’re at training, so you don’t even have to walk outside :). Have fun!

    • Bahaha as I was writing it, I thought: don’t confuse NYC and Chicago. And voilร . I jinxed myself. I wish I was here this weekend- I want to meet J!
