The Chicago Botanical Garden has been on mine and my mom’s Chicago Bucket List since at least the summer of 2009. Today, while my boyfriend and dad played golf, we made it happen. It was HUGE and so beautiful. It’s not quite fall here yet, but it’s close enough for me. My sisters came into town this evening and we had the best night. And got even more exciting news about a future family member from one of my very favorite relatives!
