We awoke to the beautiful Mississippi River and headed to Chicago on our second to last day of vacation.

In one version of our itinerary, we had thought about hitting a White Sox game tonight. But frankly, all we wanted was a hot shower and to relax. So, we splurged on a suite at Loews O'Hare Hotel, got take-out from Capital Grille, and had a delicious bottle of pinot noir. The room had a beautiful view of Chicago and we could see the planes lined up in the sky six deep (maybe all the way east to Detroit?) waiting to land at O'Hare. A perfect last night of our honeymoon.
