Off to the Windy City!

Sorry again for the lack of posts this week. I've been working 13 hours days! Crazy!

On Saturday I'm heading to out Chicago for a week!

Why? I have my annual corporate training outside of Chicago all week next week. The training is usually a bit dry, but the networking is a blast and it's good to learn how to improve job skills.

But the best part is that on both ends of my training I'm going to see my amazing Grandmother who lives in Chicago:


This is her on her 90th Birthday last year at her house before her big party!

My grandma is seriously one of the coolest people I know...

  • She's 90 and lives on her own
  • She lives in a historic home (built in 1880)
  • She's super smart and always learning (she seriously knows more words than anyone I know)
  • She's a total sweetheart
  • She knows more about current events and politics than I do
  • She's Swedish and still speaks Swedish
  • She has great stories -- think of how much change she has seen in 90 years?!
  • And she drinks 5+ cups of coffee a day (like me... which is why I know coffee is good for me)

Between hanging with Grandma (who does not have internet) and being busy with training and training events, I won't be posting for over a week!

I promise to catch up with you all then and bring great pics of my adventures in Chicago.

Until then, here's a pic of me and Grandma at my wedding:

xoxo!
