I returned home to Chicago exactly one week ago. I miss traveling but I am so happy to be home. There is nothing like sleeping in my own bed.
I spent the last week catching up with friends and catching up on work. The day after I returned to Chicago my friends came over for an ice cream social. Last night I joined friends at Shedd Blu, the annual fundraiser for the Shedd Aquarium and our favorite event of the summer. I am settling back in and enjoying some down time.
I’m sad the adventure has ended, but it feels so good to be home. If you want to relive the journey, here are links to my weekly updates:
