Mixtape Monday: Christmas Mix Vol. 10

Nesting dolls at Christkindlmarket, Chicago's German Christmas Market

food at Christkindlmarket, but I ended up getting a soft, feta spinach pretzel and Gl├╝hwein in a souvenir mug // Andrew Bird at the Fourth Presbyterian Church downtown, what a beautiful experience - I am totally going again next year!

Kinda amazed how I almost crossed everything off my Christmas to-do list! This week was jam packed with Chicago's holiday festivities, and I haven't even gone home yet. I am flying south tomorrow morning (Christmas Eve - wish me luck!) for 9 days - it will be the first time I've gone back home since I moved here. There are so many people I am looking forward to seeing for the next few days, I might explode from giddiness. Spending the holiday season in the city has just been phenomenal, and am looking forward to continuing it for years to come. But home. Nothing beats home.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and safe travels!
