A weekend in the North Woods

Last weekend Josh and I trekked up to the North Woods of Wisconsin for a college friend’s wedding. Nestled in a town called Trego (population < 1,000), we stayed at the Heartwood Conference Center and Resort. The 6.5 hour drive was long–so long–but it was fun to see a part of Wisconsin that neither of us were familiar with. The wedding was gorgeous and it was so sweet to see a friend so happy.

Coming back to Chicago though, was pretty dang nice too. While at times this city can get a bad rap, I love it and am grateful to be exposed to such diverse neighborhoods and culture every single day.

To Milwaukee and back

Last Saturday Josh and I trekked up to Milwaukee for the Bucks game. The Bucks aren’t so hot right now (last place, oy), but the drive up to Wisconsin is short and the tickets are the right price. Milwaukee may be close, but it couldn’t be more different from Chicago. As the state’s biggest city it pales in comparison to Chicago. After eating dinner at Water Street Brewery we were just a quick walk to the Bradley Center, where they were selling Girl Scout cookies and selling Bucks-inspired dog apparel, so I was sold:)
