Can't beat mother daughter time -- unless you happen to get Chicago on a great day in December -- and then you can't beat that! How fun and how nice you like being together. Looks like a perfect weekend!

Margaret Adamson said...

Nothing better than one on one time with your daughter.

Kim said...

You ladies are lovely and it looks like you had a lovely time. Perfect!! :)

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

It's lovely to have some quality time with your daughter, isn't it Lynne ? I'm going to Cambridge with my daughter on Friday ...... it will probably cost me money !!!! haha
I love your photographs ...... the shops look so festive and I could eat that sandwich right now !! XXXX

Missy George said...

Wise advice. Glad you two had some quality time together. Nice pictures. Looks like you had good weather too! Happy for you.

Sarah Huizenga said...

What a fun get away for you two. Love Chicago, and you had the perfect weekend in December, none the less, for it. We are making plans to go in April, and taking my niece with us. She would love to see the Art Institute, and her parents are not into that.

Liz said...

You certainly did have great weather for a trip to the Windy City! What a wonderful way to spend some time with your daughter. So many places to shop, so many places to eat! We always do a trip to Chicago before the holidays, but the pipeliner is working out of town until Christmas. I guess ours will wait until after the holidays.

Kerin said...

What fun!
I'm so glad that you got to take a trip with your daughter, have fun, and relax together!!
Thanks for sharing glimpses of your trip with us.


barb said...

That sounds like a lot of fun. Shopping the city. I would need a driver though.

Pepper Medley said...

Oh Lynne! That looks like so much fun. It must be nice to live close enough to Chicago to run off and enjoy it. I could live there! xox

Musings from Kim K. said...

How fun! I'm glad you were able to have some precious mother/daughter time in the windy city. Emma went to Chicago on Monday with her French class. A trip to the Art Museum and loads of shopping. I was a wee bit jealous! Happy "warm" December!

Pamela Gordon said...

What a fun weekend you and Susie had in Chicago. You are blessed to live so near each other to do this.

This reminds me of shopping trips with my mom in days gone by. She's in Heaven now, but oh the memories are so precious. Treasure each moment like this. . .I know you do. xo
