Home Sweet Home

The past 9 months have certainly been an adventure (at times exciting ... at times a struggle) as we've adjusted to our new life in North Carolina. We've enjoyed exploring an entirely new part of the country, but I don't think we realized how much we both missed the sense of home we have in Chicago.

For that reason, it was such a blessing to get to head back to Chicago this past week, if only for a short few spend time with our family, to touch base with old friends & to just be in the place where we started our little life together. To us, Chicago is warm & familiar & wonderful. And, despite all of our adventures in North Carolina, we just plain miss it.

Here's a glimpse of our few short days back home...Psst... if you want to see larger photos, just click on the pictures!
Dad & Mom McA treated us to a fun day at the Wrigley Field. It was a little chilly & the Cubs lost (surprise), but we still had a blast. ...The perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Thanks, Mom & Dad!
Before leaving the city, we played tourist for awhile. (Something, sadly, we never took the chance to do while living there).
Then we jumped on the L and headed back to Oak Park where we'd parked the car. Before leaving O.P., I had to say hello to our beloved first home. Fountainhead, you spoiled us. (Isn't she just lovely?)
We also got to catch up with our dear friends, Carson & Nicole ... and a special new friend (I'm talking about you, Little Liam). We can't wait to have the Felkel fam only 2 hours away in just a few short  weeks.
LizFay even stopped by! We were going to get cupcakes at honey, but sadly, it was closed for the day so Liz stayed for dinner instead.  (The whole Mac family wanted in on the action; we all just love Liz). P.S. Isn't the Glenbard West cow fabulous? I think so.
All in all, it was a wonderful trip.... and we were sad to say goodbye...
