Chicago feels a lot like home... which is great!  I had the luxury of having great company, and a fantastic place for us to train and as it happens for me to sleep in!  As you can see we really made ourselves at home!  Surprising how much mess can come out of suitcases!

I was not the only one of course to bring a suitcase of carriers...the lovely Chicago land BWI leaders, Heather and Rachel, are very versed in suitcase travel.  I picked up a few good folding tricks. Thanks!

Of course no trip is complete with out a few local eats and treats! 

We all enjoyed our yummy lunch and conversation at Noodle's Party... trust me when I say the food is WAY better than the name.

My lovely host, Beth of CatBird Baby, was kind enough to share her home, family, and favorite coffee spots with me! I am really jones-ing for a cup of Colectivo coffee.

Next stop ... Troy on my way to Columbus,  via the Leistensnider family bus!
