Adventures in Chicago

Adventures in Chicago

Get my guided GPSMyCity Chicago article here I must admit, I didn't take many pictures while in Chicago. I was deeply enjoying my time spent with two of my favorite people who had recently moved to the windy city, and I didn't think to get out my camera very often. It was an awesome weekend. [...]

Electric Forest 2015

I wish there was a way to put into words the life-changing experience that is Electric Forest. The person who walked into the forest isn't the same person who walks out. And not only because they haven't had a proper shower in 5 days. Electric Forest is a 4-day music festival in Rothbury, Michigan. It [...]
