I was nervous, but excited. It was thrilling to think I could get terribly lost in such a busy city (a lot to take in for this simple Oklahoma gal). Thankfully, after a long train ride and a few wrong turns, I found myself at Millennium Park. I was so glad to see the Bean! After snapping several pictures with my jazzy new camera (that I have no idea how to use), I meandered down Michigan Avenue and explored some of the intriguing shops.
After a couple of hours of exploring Chicago and not getting lost (applause, applause), I treated myself to some delicious jumbo Chicago cheese popcorn--which was possibly the best decision I've ever made (apart from marrying Grahm Cracker, of course).
