My weekend getaway to Chicago ended after a wonderful birthday night of going out to eat at the best little restaurant called the Handlebar. I had fried plantains, black beans, and delicious avocados along with the best Winter Ale I've ever drank. And it was the cutest place right in the middle of the Wicker Park area. I haven't ever been a big fan of Chicago, but I must say that area is probably my favorite. It's nice to be back home though, I missed my friends, painting, and I think I even missed working at the restaurant. What can I say, I'm an Iowa girl at heart and its nice to be around good hearted midwesterners again.
Last night we had my birthday dinner at a great restaurant in Iowa City called the Sanctuary and it was just so much fun! I had a hot date, fun with my girlfriends, and maybe a little too much wine. I have a really great feeling about this year, and so far 25 has been good to me. I'll end this post with a quote from the best birthday card I've gotten in a long time...and a fitting quote for my mentality as of lately. "The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances; if there is any reaction, both are transformed." -Jung
