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.

Final Four

Yesterday night the Badgers played Arizona, and guess what? They won! Which means they’re on to the Final Four and I’m in for watching more basketball. Because March Madness just never ends. But I must admit, the game was exciting, the Badgers played hard and it was fun to watch. Not to mention this sweet story about Bo Ryan, the Badger coach, and his dad. Chick may have grumbled a bit with all the yelling Josh did, but it wasn’t anything a treat or two couldn’t fix:)
