Today I'm going to be busy putting off packing and watching Arrested Development in my sweatpants, muahaha. I may or may not be still in a Brie food coma, so there's not much I can do but try and gather my strength back on the couch. It'll be hard, but a girl's gotta do what she's gotta do.

In the mean time, here are the last of my Chicago photos. To those of you that are new here, I'm moving from my hometown Chicago to Seattle this Wednesday! So here' s a look at the city I've lived in for the last 23 years :)

Photos from the last day of the Picasso exhibit in the Museum of Art! It was so cool staring at the paintings and imagining Pablo looking at his muse in his studio and painting his version of her.

It's a portrait of a woman- the teeth are the sharp triangles and the vertical line is her hair. So cool

  22. My sister lives in Chicago and absolutely loves it. She says the food and art scenes are phenomenal, and nothing beats Chicago at Christmas! However, Seattle has always been on my radar as somehwere I would love to live. The people there are so genuine, and the creativity that is exuded from that city are amazing. You'll be fine! Good luck with the move!
