Links I Love Week 12

This weekend, I booked a little staycation in the city of Chicago. This is my first solo staycation and I have to say, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?” I cashed in on a hotel stay that was owed to me for over a year but I never found the right time to take it. In fear that it might expire, I decided to take it this weekend. I added on a photoshoot in the afternoon and then the rest of the evening was mine. It is beyond cold in Chicago, by that I mean it feels like 28 degrees. Staying in a warm comfortable bed with a book and a cup of tea is the perfect fix. I just got this one in the mail and I am loving it. If all goes well, I will still be sleeping when you read this in the morning. Comment below and tell me which article you loved or what you want to see more in the future. 

Thank you for reading!
