The Honeymoon (Pt. 1)

Hello from Springfield. It’s our official full day living in Springfield as a married couple. We managed to snag some free wifi, so I thought I’d do a little honeymoon post while my husband takes an afternoon nap.

The wedding was hot, sweaty, and wonderful. We had such a blast and we are so thankful for all the friends and family that helped make it happen. We feel very blessed.

We went to Chicago for our honeymoon. Brad had never been and I had been twice, but once was when I was young and the other was a few years ago, but was only for a day. We loved Chi-Town. Our favorite thing about it was the weather. It was such a relief from the heat wave we’ve had in KC!!

I took about a zillion pictures on my phone, but here are my favorites from Day 1:

Our first meal in Chicago, recommended by our friends Kyle & Michelle. They just recently went to Chicago on their honeymoon as well, so they had some good tips for us. This place was great! Super close to our hotel, great Chicago-style pizza, and inexpensive.

Our first evening was pretty chill. After dinner and getting a disposable camera at CVS, we decided to explore Grant Park. We were lucky that it was right across the street from our hotel.

So amazing to sit on the lake shore and enjoy a beautiful city sunset. A great beginning to a wonderful trip.

Day 2 is coming soon!!
