Today is my Going Away party, which will be filled with blue and white striped dresses, brie on crackers, pictionary, chocolate cakes, and excited goodbyes. And while I'll be busy kicking butt at board games and devouring a whole wheel of cheese, I thought I'd leave you with pictures from my soon to be ex-home.

So here, my friends, is Chicago :)

  1. Nice photos and cute best friend :)
    Chicago seems a really interesting city, I think it has many examples of very inspiring architecture.

    Where are you moving to? Found a job somewhere else?
    Looking forward to finding out!

  2. Chicago's beautiful. I've only been there once, for a less-than-fun occasion, but I hope I can go back someday and actually just have fun. Your outfit in that one shot is also really cute!

  7. Ah, Chicago really is a gorgeous city! I've been a couple times, but not long enough to get the true feel of it. Definitely motivation to return! Your going-away party sounds super fun. Copious amounts of cheesy and board games are among my specialties! ;) All the best with the move! xo

  20. Ah! I hope that your going away party is nice (and not too sad or anything, eek!). Hopefully you'll be able to stay in contact with all those you've met. Have a rad day, Miss Marlen!

    Man, I really love that shot of the Chicago Theatre (I'm assuming that's what it is, hehe). And I loooove that neat print on your sweater!

  22. Fun! I enjoyed seeing many familiar places that I've seen on a few different visits to Chicago over the years. Glad you could say goodbye w/ a fun celebration w/ friends. wish you the best on your big move! To Seattle right? What will you be doing there? I remember you said on your video but I must've missed why you're moving, even if it's just because it's gorgeous there (which is why I dream of moving there : ).

  27. I love Chicago so much. I'd love to live around there some day. It's too bad you've moved because I visit family in Chicago once or twice each year! I hope your transition is going smoothly though! You're going to have a great time in Seattle.
