NOVEMBER 24th: Return home just in time for the holidays- and to blog about your stay in Chicago! Consider this a free day.

STORY UP! 

Date: November 24th 
Location: My living room
Wearing: A.E. skinny jeans, A.L.C. assymetrical silk top
Mood: Happy 
Hello lovelies. I'm back from Chicago, and boy was it a whirlwind of a trip. I did plenty of sighseeing at the Milennium Park, the Navy Pier and the famed Magnificent Mile. Here's some of the interesting fashion I caught on camera at Water Tower Place, Chicago's premier shopping destination, situated at the pinnacle of the Mag Mile. 

Dinner at the Walnut Room on my last night was well worth the wait. I had an absolutely delicious rosemary-grilled petite filet mignon, pictured below. The tree-lighting ceremony immediately after put me right in the holiday mood. It's a month to Christmas, everyone! Are you ready for it?

I log off theoctopusproject.com and stretch out on my couch. I glance at the clock above my t.v. It's 10:30 a.m. now, I'll be meeting Ben around 12 p.m. for lunch. 
As I unplug my MacBook, the bell rings. I tiptoe to look through the peephole on my door and am greeted by a fish-eye distorted version of Ben. 

Eager to see the man himself, I quickly fling open my door. Ben wraps me up in a big hug. "Hi." I giggle and rub his back. 
"I've missed you." He murmurs in my hair, as he runs his fingers through my brown locks. Then with his right hand, he cups my face and tips my chin back. His face is inches away from mine. I can smell his cologne. Slowly and softly, we kiss. I can feel butterflies in my throat and stomach. I feel light, tingly and beautiful. It's good to be home.
