Well, that was way too much fun.
I could--and probably will--write a week's worth of posts about my weekend trip to Chicago. Today, however, I'm going to keep it short.
I arrived in Chicago midday Friday. Tiffany picked me up at the airport and we went straight to Karen Beeson's house for a visit...
and studio tour.We ate a tasty dinner at Giordano's, we headed to Elgin where we spent the night. The next morning we rolled out of bed and headed to Huntley where we attended the Great Lakes Congress No Frills December show and holiday party. I showed one new model..
and one old model...
with great success in both the halter and performance divisions.
After the show, we got back in the car and headed to the Congress Plaza Hotel in downtown Chicago.Our room was on the eighth floor and we had a wonderful view of the lake.
We freshened up and hit the streets (and the stores).
Not surprisingly, we found a few horses along the way!
We slept in Sunday morning, but still had time to do some exploring before I headed back to the airport.
Everything about this trip was exceptional--the weather, the food, the city, the horses and especially the time spent with friends. Happy birthday, Tiffany! Can we do it again next year?
