A Perfect Visit

We had our first solo visit from my sister since my beloved nephew was born (over 4 years ago!) It was a terrific long weekend!

On Friday we had lunch at Blackbird, a visit to the Art Institute, a concert at Millennium Park...
dinner at Acre and a quick trip to the Dairy Star...
On Sat. we went to the farmer's market, the spa, and saw The Help that night (I liked it better than the book!)

And on Sunday we had a lovely brunch at M. Henrietta with my friend M., a walk along Lake Michigan, which was so blustery they had to shut the beaches! We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing day in the backyard with grilled veggies and cocktails. A sleepy and tearful goodbye at 3am this morning was the end of a really wonderful visit with one of my favorite people in the world who happens to also be my sister.
